After a long day yesterday every one was in the mood for a shorter day but the best we could do in terms of towns and Albergue was to plan for Villafranca. It added up to 25 km, another long day but mostly flat day.
We left at 6:40 in the morning along the scenic path of town. Ponfarada turned out to be much larger than we imagined taking almost 3 km to get out of town.
It was nice to get into smaller and more frequent towns. One thing we noticed is how prosperous these towns are compared to the ones in Meseta. The most special thing was the wonderful sweet breeze that was blowing all day.
After breakfast we were back again in the wine country with tons of fruit trees. We decided to pick few fruits like peaches and pears.
As you can see in the above picture, we have less than 200 km to Santiago. We are 3/4 of the way done and are feeling it our feet. Since we had a reservation for a good Albergue, we decided to have a nice sit down lunch before continuing on.
Here is an old fashion grape juicer.
We ended up walking 25 km. our plan for tomorrow is 18 km so we can enjoy our next climb coming day after tomorrow.
Beautiful picture of the flower! Very proud of you guys– it seems like you’ll hit 400 miles in the next few days. You all are so inspiring.
So happy to see all the smiles. Your weariness does not show at all. That flower picture is worthy of framing. Vandana so proud of you. Can you pass me some of your energy? love to all
Thank you for sharing all of the amazing pictures. It looks like you guys are having a great time!
