Yesterday I passed the half-way point kilometer-wise; today the geographical halfway point.
The walking has been good as has the weather. The only rain so far was leaving the town of Burgos a few days ago. It rained steadily for several hours. Fortunately it stopped long before I reached my destination, so I didn’t arrive soaking wet. It did turn the last part of the route into mud, which stuck to my boots and made walking slippery. The last few days the weather continues to improve. It’s cool In the morning but warms up quickly. If things go according to plan, I’ll arrive in Leon in two days.
Today is a bit of a rest day–only 16km. I booked myself a room and look forward to resting, having my own shower, using a real towel instead of a camp towel, and exploring the town. It doesn’t take much to make a pilgrim happy.
I’m enjoying the walking and the scenery but most of all the people. You don’t see each other for a few days sometimes, but then you run into each other again and it feels like a big reunion.
My room today is right on the route and for the last few hours I’ve watched pilgrims walk by.
Finally, a big thank-you for all your comments. It’s difficult to respond to all of them but due to the technical limitations, but I do appreciate them!
