Today we moved! We took a taxi through the mountains from Villafranca to Sarría. Cindy walked around town to scope out the trail for tomorrow and get some snacks for our walk. I went back out later to get groceries for dinner. Tomorrow we hope to do our planned day but it's going to be a tough first day back out for Cindy as we have 14 miles …
... great spot in the sun and it had been a two hour walk to breakfast! But on we went - and it was a great days walk. Some up hill and some down hill, but generally very picturesque. Lunch was at a remote cafe and then a general slide downhill into Paloma Y Leon Albergue which is really relaxed and chilled out. Washing done, relaxed, communal vegetarian dinner and chill. Sharing a room with the Canadian couple - David and Ednah but David is ...
... come across whilst others haven't, but the last two days no photos have come across at all. I have been able to trick some across by posting on Facebook and then copying onto my iPad photo folder. You have to be devious sometimes! Might be something I have to check with Iain when I get home. Darn nuisance thing, technology! :-) I am looking forward to dinner tonight, especially since I didn't have lunch! lol. I had a piece of Tart de Santiago in my ...
... rise of 450 meters. We then had a descent back down to roughly 600 meters where we then began a gradual climb to 705m over the next 14 km. after that we began a very steep climb over the next 8 km until we reached O'Cebreiro at 1,300m. The highest point on the Camino. It was a thoroughly challenging and exhausting walk and although dosed on iBoprufen, the heel was making its dissatisfaction known toward the end. Despite the exhaustion....and I can hardly believe I ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Mar de Plata Sarria
This is a basic nice comfortable facility with everything that the casual traveler and pilgrim may need. Caution, somewhat steep for the cash strapped young pilgrim, not so for the more comfortable older pilgrim.
Excellent restaurant, and food, especially the Ensalada Mixta. Fixed priced menu €;12 for three course meal with bread and drink. I'd recommend it highly.
Not on the Camino, but not far from it. About 500 meters from the historic section, a few blocks from the commercial center and river walk area.
