... with all the hills today, that is enough. We have a great old hotel, full of antiques. My room is 20 euro including breakfast - unbelievable. Tomorrow is a 30 Km day with about 2000 ft of climbing, and then descend into Gijon so would like a good rest, early start and time to rest on the trail.

Tomorrow a very long walk to Soto de ...
