Foncebadon to Ponferrada - 28.2 kms Not the best nights sleep. The wood fire ended up making the room pretty smoky and a couple of snorers down the end didn't help. Everyone in the dorm seemed to get up early, so we were gone by just before 7 - only to fine the shop up the road served eggs for breakfast. So...

Although we prefer white, we have had much red wine. We have an ambitious day tomorrow - about 30 km. We will ship our bags and walk a steep incline. We have reserved bunks for Ruitelan where our bags will go. We have less than 200 km ...
... the Camino de Santiago – the French Route- starts in France and is over 800 km long. Many people walk the entire route – including our friends Ron / Kibben Guy who completed the whole walk in June/ July this year. Riding along the route makes me realize what an amazing feat it would be to walk the entire Camino. We have seen many walkers – every shape and size.
