Day 21: Castrojeriz to Boadilla del Camino (20 km)

Whoops! I’m getting behind here with inconstant WiFi, the need to conserve battery usage, and the need to conserve my own energy!

Today’s walk started with a steep hill UP in a driving rain. New Yorker J described it as sheer hell, but he’s a writer and exaggerates. Here he looks perfectly happy, having reached the top where there was some shelter.


The UP part was followed by a DOWN part, which fortunately was a wide concrete path. I demonstrated slalom techniques which were surprisingly useful on the 18% descent. The rest of the day was grey but fairly flat.


Arrived at the very cosy albergue En El Camino where Eduardo is the amiable host. A whole crowd of current acquaintances was in attendance for dinner and the night in a rustic but charming dorm. (Really!)

    • I actually thought about you today while my legs were complaining in a general way. I was so glad that I didn’t have you knee problems. You would have appreciated the slalom coming down that hill!
