No rain and day turned out beautiful. Plan was to walk 23k today but so nice I walked over 8 hours and almost 25 miles. The not so fun part was that there was a LOT of climbing today. Good day but tiring. Need some magical elixer in a wine glass if I can get out of the bed. Lol New Pilgrims everywhere. If you walk at least the last 100 kilometers or 62 miles you get the Compostela, a certificate of completion, written in Latin and personalized with your name and date of completion. Sarria is a little over 100 kilometers so a lot of new pilgrims are flying, busing or taking train there to begin. So very crowded now. Since I always walk alone I am looking for space between the group in front and ones behind to enjoy my solitude. The French , especially the women, talk at the same time and non stop. I usually have to speed up my pace when I encounter them.
Only 89 kilometers left.
