Today’s hike was mostly uphill, and we thought it would be about 18 km. It turned out to be 20 km.
Marc and Sakkar were still a bit jet legged and not ready for the long day and the steep climb, so they decided to sleep in and take a cab.
Pat and I left at 6:30 in the dark. It was a foggy and cloudy day.
We could finally see the beautiful, lush rolling hills of Galicia.
At about 14 km, as we came down a path into a country road. All of a sudden this car honks at us. Surprised, we look back and guess who we see (two autogrenos- that is peregrinos in a car).
We and our backpacks were offered a lift, but we only had another 6 km to go, so we declined. After about another km or so finally around 11:30, we reached our first and only cafe of the day. We decided to stop and enjoyed chatting with few German pilgrims before we took on our last climb of the day.
