Herrerias to Triacastela…

Today, Glenn entered the region of Galacia and the mountains with stunning views. Lots of climbing steep uphills and then downhills. He walked his first 10 km on an empty stomach, as he left before the hotel was open for breakfast. This was the case many days…leaving to get an early start to beat the heat.

A well deserved lunch break with yet another ham sandwich. This time it was not the traditional dried Spanish version, but more moist slices. Lettuce and tomato were a welcome addition.
Traditional grain silos built up off the ground to keep the critters out.
Yes, there were three castles built here in the 10th century, but all three disappeared within the next century.
Home for tonight! Casa David
A nice pilgrim amenity…a clothesline and basket of clothespins.
And some lovely dinner companions…Dick from Holland, Eulic from Ireland, Moura from Bolivia, and Adrian from Ireland.

Glenn is very much looking forward to a shorter walk into Sarria tomorrow. He will spend 3 nights there and Sara will meet him there on Sunday the 12th. She will register at the Pilgrim’s office and get her passport. Then they will travel the last 100 kilometers together to Santiago. Safe travels, Sara!

Buen camino, Glenn!
