Day 32 Fonfria to Pintin, Spain October 23, 2022
Today felt really long even though I only walked 20.1 km-
And that became not my intention but my thought for the day. I believe anxiety is caused by worrying about the future. I was pretty anxious sitting around drinking coffee, thinking about getting soaked and blown off the hills, etc. but once I was out and walking, I realized my fears about the day were all imagined and that it wasn’t as bad as I thought. That’s something to remember-
Along the way-
Sometimes it rained, sometimes the wind blew hard, sometimes it stopped raining and only misted/drizzled but by the time I got to Triacastela, it was pouring so I popped into a restaurant for lunch-
I haven’t had a bocadillo for a while and this was a good one!
Carrying on, I almost missed the turn off. There are two routes and one is 7km longer. Luckily as I was going left, I noticed there were 2 signs so took the one on the right. Thank goodness! I walked through a few ghost towns with no services. The day seemed long-
My poncho isn’t the best and if it touches my coat, it makes the coat wet so I spent the day holding my poncho away from me. That’s a drag when the wind is whipping everything around. And my Gortex running shoes? My socks were soaked when I arrived at Casa Cine in Pintin-
I have my own room and bathroom so I’m hoping for a great sleep. Tomorrow I plan to get to Mercadoiro. It’s not supposed to rain so fingers crossed.
