- 26.7 km travelled today "Day is over, night has come. Today is gone, what's done is done. Embrace your dreams throughout the night, tomorrow comes with a whole new light - unknown" After a much needed sleep, we are saying goodbye to our wonderful hostess and heading out into the wintery conditions again. I have had to borrow Dads thermals as I am not coping with the cold. We stop at the top of Alto do Poio ...
Last night Richard and I stayed in a large albergue in Fonfria while Warren pushed on with the other group to Triacastella, about 9 kms away.
We were up over 1200 metres so it was cold. Luckily it was not raining, which is a miracle for Galacia at this time of the year. Attached to the albergue is a padrozza which is a large, low circular hut with a thatched roof. It would have held a couple of hundred people but for the communal meal of soup, stewed meat and potatoes, ...

Today, just before getting here we crossed the border into Galicia. Even before entering Galicia proper we have ...
The morning is cool and we set off after 7.30am and another bad breakfast - I just want fruit with some French yoghurt, surely not too much to ask for!! We both start our day hungry again (dad still not understanding why he cant get eggs on his undercooked toast) heading up to Linares and then we ascend further up to Alto de Dan Roque (1270m) which has a huge pilgrim statue at the top to keep us all inspired to continue. The next 16.5km to Triacastela is a happy ...
