Camino – Sarria (Day 26)

Date: Sun 2nd June
Distance: 19 km
Temperature: Warm
Mood: Loving it!
Left: Triacastela 8:45am
Arrived: Sarria 1:15pm
Santiago de Composela: 115 km
Highlight: Easy walk

The weather has improved dramatically over the last few days and today was again blue sunny skies and temperatures in the low 20’s. Perfect walking weather! We have now entered the Galician region, which is typically wet and lush.

We were in no rush today as was an easy walk for a change (less than 20km). And we had another rest day planned in Sarria to celebrate Jenny’s Birthday!

We enjoyed another picnic lunch on the side of the path and before we knew it, we had arrived at Sarria. The walk was very picturesque with panoramic views (like most days!) and the change in scenery in tune with the region.

We enjoyed another Sangria and a chat with a couple from Scotland whom we have bumped into on a number of occasions. One of them told us of their stint holed up in a Burgos hotel for 10 days due to infected blisters! We have also recently heard from our Australian friends whom we left behind in Burgos when we took to the bikes and one of their party is currently suffering from shin splints in a bad way with strict orders not to walk for at least 5 days.

Stories like these are not uncommon on the Camino, so we count our blessings and think of those that are suffering. Both of us are bandage free and feet in excellent condition. Fingers crossed, they stay that way and from the guide books, the worst of the climbs and descents are now over.

Less than a weeks walk to go! We cannot believe how quickly the days go by. We cannot believe how many beds we’ve slept in and places we have visited! It will be a day of mixed emotions when we do finally arrive at Santiago de Compostela, but until then, we are enjoying the journey!
