7-11 June Madrid 7/6/14 Saturday A leisurely morning then a taxi (8€) to the Hesperia Hotel for the Northern Spain tour. The welcome dinner was at the same restaurant we has on 18 May. Good news is that we have just 26 on this tour. Hotel is about 2km from from city centre in a quiet business district - dead in the evenings. 5 star so hamburger and drink for 2 in the hotel costs around 60€.

... get used to the physical demands of El Camino. The blisters were gone, I was full of energy, enthusiasm and not much soreness. But there were just 2 days left to go! Day 8: Arzúa to Pedrouzo, 20Km. Doggie rescue! Feeling re-invigorated, I had the energy to go to the front of the pack. But not for long as it is typical for me to get easily distracted taking photos or looking at something or talking to someone. We came across a parolympian, an amputee who has ...
