Day25 Astoria to Foncebadon 27.3Km

Sunrise is getting later! Up at 08.50 today. Ooh very dark this morning leaving Astorga, but at least it was dry. Apart from a short walk through cobbled streets passing the church, which was lovely. It was very uninspiring walking out of Astorga. Mostly followed the main road.

I was disappointed with the breakfast this morning at Hotel Gaudí! However my first stop of the day was a pretty little village where I met Aimee who was walking by as I was finishing my coffee. 

We walked together for the rest of the day. Chatting about this and that and laughing 😆 

We had a steady climb all day and we appreciated the changing landscape, much more greener, trees and forests with a much more rockier walking path.

Another stop along the way another coffee and something to eat, plus the obligatory stamp for our credential. We had a good stop for lunch in Rabanal del Camino. Oh my 

we were ready for this! Cerveza con limon with a calamari Bocadillo and aioli hit the mark. 

Alycia caught up with us scaring the bloody pants off me! Christ she should be known as the stealth Dutch pilgrim. Oh how we laughed! 

Steeper into Foncebadón weather closing in and it’s raining! Lovely place I’m staying with a great pilgrims menu and Bandai, Tess, Hoshang, Maria are all staying here too.

I’m very apprehensive about tomorrow walking down the mountain the weather forecast is not going to be good, plus I have to take my glasses off when it rains! 🤦‍♀️

That’s me off to bed. Night night 😘 

Buen Camino 😘
