... stop" motel in order to get a couple more miles under our belts. So, we are officially up and over mountain pass number one. Two more remain between us and Santiago. We have some long days ahead (our decision trying to allow at least one day at the beach when this is all said and done!). Tomorrow is relatively flat taking us to the base of our next ...
After yesterday being quite a big day we decided to have a rest day and only walk 18k to Ponferanda. The fact that the next town with an albergue was another 18k away had nothing to go with our decision to cut the day short. Haha!!!!!!!! We continued to descend down the mountain and the views were gorgeous. We walked through some small villages and of course had our morning coffee and breakfast. We arrived at the albergue at 10:20 and they did not open ...
... take, but it runs over, around and under the freeway all the way. Ummmmm, like bitumen, bitumen and more bitumen. The alternative is the Camino Duro which is a climb 1500M up a mountain for 8km that starts at about a 25 degree incline for a km, then becomes more gentle but is still a 2 hour climb. Hedley and I took the mountain and Hamish took the road. He is a happy chappy and will yap to anyone and as the bulk of people went that way he wasn't short of company. Hedley ...
... be a pasta salad or noodles with tomato sauce). Second Course: Fried meat (pork, steak, veal, calamari or fish) with french fries. To tell you the truth we are getting tired of tuna and french fries!!!

... once again outnumbered everyone else, since there was Laura and myself, a girl from Clare we've met before, and a family of four from Coolock, Dublin. Their kids are 10 and 12 and have walked all the way from SJPDP, with the exception of a bus that skipped 3 days of the meseta (which sounds brilliant in a Coolock accent; Mess-ayyy-tha!)

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Ponferrada Plaza
This is a modern businessmen hotel with all the comforts and amenities that the traveler needs, a very efficient and competent hotel with a nice restaurant, good food, well served and presented.Excellent breakfast table at what seems to be the standard price for buffet breakfast €12-15. I only have a comment being that I was on a pilgrimage to Santiago, the hotel is a little away from the CAmino, about a 20-30 minutes walk from the Templars Castle and pilgrims albergue. This is not a problem and gives the visitor a chance to walk through a modern vibrant city in Northern Spain.
