6th of May – The Final Day

Rob and Pat

We decided to leave Lavacolla early, to get ourselves the best chance of making the midday mass in Santiago. Given this is Pat’s first Camino, we wanted to be able to have the opportunity to go to as many masses as possible, so that at least she’d have a chance of seeing the Botafumeiro swing. We actually got up at 5:30 am, as breakfast in the hotel was served from 6.

4th of May – Reflections

Rob and Pat

This morning, we left Arzua and we’re doing about 16 kilometres to Rua and that will leave us two more days to get to Santiago, two more easy days, 16 kilometres to Lavacolla, and then a short 10 kilometre day to Santiago. Unfortunately, I think our final two days will be raining, but we’ve been very lucky with the weather so far, so we can’t complain.

We’re now getting into the rhythm of the Camino fairly well, although because we’re only walking short days, we’re not leaving particularly early, generally between 9 and 9:30 am. Today’s section is about 15 kilometres, which seems to be about as much as Pat can take at the moment.

Rob and Pat

So today we were very lucky, we have glorious weather again, probably about 14 degrees and a clear blue sky. We started off from Ventas and for the first time so far, managed to get eggs for breakfast which was a great start to the day. Today is just a short stretch into Palas de Rei.
