The guide book said that the next stage was 21km, but there was only one alburge with 32 beds...yuck. I made plans to move 2 towns past. It had more options. I may have walked 32 kilometers, but I am glad that I did it. Now I have a market to get things for breakfast.
Okay...now on to the walk...leaving Burgos was a little daunting, but manageable. I did like that they streets had arrows made into them to show you the direction to walk.
I am not a big fan of walking on the road. After a while, it begins to hurt your feet.
I was trying to enjoy the last little bit of countryside before the Mesesta.
Although, not every bit of the path today was pretty....train tracks and the highway isn't pretty...
The first town....it didn't have a name that I could see....it was pretty small...I don't think they even had a coffee shop.
There were some nice hills today...
Trajados was supposed to have a cafe, but I didn't see it...who knows. Then Rabe de las Calzados was the last town before the Mesesta, and their cafe was off the trail.
Let the Meseta begin...
By the time I reached Hornillos del Camino, I was more than ready to rest. I stopped and had coffee, a sandwich, and some boot free time.
Back to Meseta. Only 11 more kilometers to go. Just after leaving town, I noticed that my boot was too tight which bruised my ankle. OUCH! It took a while for it to feel better after I loosened it.
There was much relief when I saw the town! My feet were screaming! All of the towns are in valleys, which makes them impossible to see until you are at the town. I think that is one of the things that makes walking this part so difficult.
Inside the church...took before mass. I got to go to mass that was in English thanks to a priest doing the camino.
Dinner was so good. I had Korean fried rice with a fruit salad...yum yum!
