Day 18 Itero de La Vega to Villalcázar de Sirga, Spain October 9, 2022
Happy Thanksgiving! I will not be eating turkey today but maybe some hamburger? Not sure yet but whatever it is, it is well earned. We changed our mind about our final destination and ended up walking the farthest so far – 27+ km. I’m a little stiff right now but hope I’ll recover during the night-
I had a later start- 8 am because we set our alarm for 7. I had a great sleep. Breakfast was dried up baguette, chorizo , cheese and tomato. No coffee!
Along the way-
It was 8.2 km to the first restaurant where I ate again. You never know when your next meal might be! The church in Boadilla del Camino was very nice but closed-
just in the nick of time. An Aussie sitting outside told us that the bar had just closed - at 4 rather than 5 and so we walked around to the side of the building and Mirjanne must’ve made a noise because a man opened the shutter. He quickly let us into the building and informed us that he was going to Leon for a funeral and that the bar and restaurant were closed. We had to pay for both rooms because he wouldn’t be back until nine tomorrow morning. He at least served us drinks and had to change the keg. The funeral was at 5:30 in Leon, 100 km away and they didn’t leave until 4:30.
I visited with an American couple from Minneapolis for a bit, then fell into my bed to enjoy the peace and comfort. Looking forward to a shorter walk, 22.8 km to Calzadilla de las Cueza tomorrow.
