Hospital de Orbigo to Fóncebadon.
Apologies for getting behind on the Blog – I blame it on blisters the size of bouncy castles ! #officefeet
From a famous bridge – across a long dry river – another made famous from the “Way” movie
Through villages where walls are made from ……… well ……. Termite Mounds ?
Past shrines whose serious purpose is made more memorable as the statue is dressed as Elvis
And adding to my list of admirable fellow travellers with Philip (Stav) and Sally from Sydney Aus’ who are amazingly travelling with a 1 and 2 year old the whole 800k ✅
I’m sure this statue below has a more important reason than boozed pilgrim impressions 🤣
……. But let’s face it when the local bishops palace is Astorga is a Goudi ! …… they may overlook my heresy 🍷😆
……. at the end of the day – Las Aguedas in the village of Murias de Rechivaldo ( nice 2 horse town 🤨)
With the Mexican Girls – amazing part of the group – Angelina and Christina – from Mexicali – not far over the border from SAN Diego – love their stories
And back to the Kindergarten where Johannes with the best sausage and cheese joins us for second breakfast
The strong characters of the group and constant company – Martin Boettcher – Architect & Artist from Frankfurt and Carolina Mateos – Horsewoman and Violinist with the Basel Chamber Orchestra . ….. Oddly with my deep knowledge of their professions 🤣 we get on famously!!
The way gets harder and 30 plus K a day becomes 25 as the path escalates through 1800M
Into Fóncebadon where Booking.com have made a mistake with my booking 🤨💥
The cold sets in as you can see from martins arctic gear as we get higher
Until we arrive at our destination for the night . B*%#! Knackered 🤣
…… until next time 💕
