28th of May – A slight change of plans

Rob The Traveller

I just had second my second visit to the physio in Ponferrada. The treatment was excellent, but there’s still a fair bit of pain. I left the clinic with lots of advice on stretching, strapping, medication and how to get myself through the final stages to Santiago. I have to say the medical services that I’ve called upon so far in Spain, mainly farmacias and physios have been absolutely excellent.

22nd of May – Another Day Off | Recuperating in León

Today was a day of relaxation and recuperation. I slept in, had a leisurely breakfast, and then went in search of a good physio. A very helpful receptionist at my hotel managed to arranged a physio at the other side of town, so I caught a taxi over there. The physio center was obviously of a very high quality, as depicted around the walls with all the newspaper cuttings of the famous sports people who used the facility.

11th of May – The Big Challenge

Rob The Traveller

Today will probably be my greatest challenge so far physically in walking the Camino. Due to accommodation availability, I had two options today, either walk really short, 10 or 12 kilometers, or go long, which will be about 31 kilometers. I’ve decided to try the 31. It’s going to be a challenge, I know that. But I won’t be stupid.
