Day 19 Villalcázar de Sirga to Calzadilla de La Cueza, Spain October 10, 2022
The night was good and we were walking by 8 AM when it’s just starting to get light –
The countryside has not changed much for the past few days.
I didn’t really have an intention for the day but I thought about the difference between hiking and walking. To me, we are walking because we are along very specific paths. Hiking is when you’re walking along new territory where there is no path. I do have to admit that I really enjoyed today and I know that word enjoyed is going to get me into lots of trouble with my three companions because they tease me about doing another Camino which I tell them will never happen! Physically, emotionally, spiritually and mentally I feel really good and that is making these days pass quickly. I look forward to what is yet to come.
Our walk was 22.8 km which is pretty long but it was overcast so not at all hot –
Our first stop was in Carrión de Los Condes which is a medieval town-
Mass was on and nuns were singing-
Carrying on, we had breakfast- another tortilla which I don’t mind, and then found the Iglesia Santa María de Camino. It was first built in 1130 but remodelled in 1682-
