San Mamed del Camino to Vilcha - 23.8 kms Not that Clive heard it, or felt me hitting the top bunk, but his alarm went off at 6am so it was up and out of there! Considering David wasn't well, we had a good nights sleep (thanks to the doonas in the cupboard) and headed off after a piece of toast, on to Sarria - then straight through Sarria. It was nice and early when we got there, and having something in the tummy allowed us to keep ...
