Torres del Rio--Main Albergue closed

Only Casa Mari isopen & was complete around 3 pm today. There are about 6 people sleeping on mattresses on the terraces as well. Still more peregrinos kept arriving, but no room. About 40 are sleeping on the porch of the church. Although there is a bar, a restaurant & a tienda, only the tienda has food for dinner & breakfast. The restaurant is closed & the bar does not serve food, not even tapas, even though he has a kitchen & tables to do so.

If you end up in Los Arcos after 12, stay in Los Arcos as there may not be any room in Torres del Rio & the next town is 10k away.

Hi,

I've seen this on your blog: "I have also decided to stop walking on Sunday in Logrono."

Does that mean you will completely stop walking already? Or only on that Sunday? Or did I miss something?
 
Hi Jerome! I had planned to walk to Burgos this time around, but my friends are stopping at Logrono to return home. Since I plan at this point to return with Mary in September, it makes no sense to continue walking on when I´ll be walking from Logrono with her then. :D

It was originally my plan to do the entire Camino in one trip, but because of my other responsibilities, it is not possible. So, after tomorrow, I will be leaving the Camino temporarily, & returning in September to continue on further down the road to Santiago. :arrow:

Your words reminded me that it is important to plan a day's journey the PM before, as much as possible, with whatever updated info may be available, say from the hospitalero/a at the albergue one is spending the night at, town folk, fellow-pilgrims, notes posted on refugios, etc. Just bec a refugio, a drinking water fountain, or a "bar," r listed in a guidebook doesn't mean they will be up and functioning when we pass by it. Thanks, dg. Keep the (cyber) churros going! Best, xm 8)

Ahh Wolverine..... I am glad to read this. I was thinking your leg had got so sore you were going to finish. I am glad to hear you are coming back, and I look forward to reading of the rest of your Camino in September!

Stopping already? :( :(

I was just getting used to blog inspections!

Los Arcos... Hmm... I think for me, Los Arcos will always be the place to stop before Logrono.
 
I love this part of the CF; as a matter of fact I slept in Los Arcos (where people were putting big bottles of cool water on their doorstep for the pilgrims) and also in Viana before reaching Logrono.

I was really taking it easy !
 
I love this part of the CF...Los Arcos...Viana...
Isn't that something...how tastes and likes vary according to each one of us and our very personal journeys. I hated the ups/downs of this section...what a relief to walk those high steps to Viana! Best, xm 8)

Glad to hear it! I hope I will do the same, and take my time to experience a lot of the smaller places en route. That is the way I explored the Loire by bicycle. I hope I don't feel pressured by the need for a bed to keep going fast to try and beat the rush. I am not a fast mover by nature! I guess the difference with cycling though will be the sore feet, and the urge to get off them.

If u don't succumb to the temptation from the begining, u'll become immune to it :!:

Sleeping mat

If I am going to be slow though, seems like I might just have to pack that sleeping mat after all! I notice in one of Athena's photos after she arrived in Santiago, she had a photo of some new arrivals, with sleeping mats on the outside of their packs - maybe they never used them, or maybe they are a sign of crowded refugios. I have a 3/4 thermarest that I used all the time for about seven weeks while campling in France and Jersey. Very comfortable.

I took one during my first Camino and never used it, and I am slooww; left it in an albergue somewhere. Since then I've never taken another one. But, knowing then I had that option, made me feel better. Best, xm 8)
