VDLP Day 25 – Salamanca. A Camino rest day!

I absolutely love the center of Salamanca. I’ll definitely be back!

There’s a wonderful plaza mayor, with cafes all around the plaza. You could really spend your whole time just sitting there, but of course I did a bit of sightseeing, and particularly, took a walk down the road to have a look at the cathedral. I did a bit of admin catch up. I got some laundry done. I went for a haircut and a beard trim. I also got my mobile phone topped up.

It was a fairly relaxing day and I caught up with other people who were either coming into Salamanca who were also having a rest day. I also had dinner with some pilgrims that I’ve met along the way and my scanty and long never used German came in handy.

It was generally a great restful day. Sometimes it’s a little bit hard to just put your feet up, but it was great to have that day off and have a rest and be ready for the days ahead.

I’m ready to get moving again!

    Calzada de Valdunciel to El Cubo de Tierra del Vino, in my opinion is by far the worst stage of VdlP, where you walk for several hours along the busy highway A-66 (not just the national road, but the actual highway). In March I proved to be a bad pilgrim and took a bus from Calzada to El Cubo, where I restarted my walk to Villanueva de Campean. So, nobody is perfect…

      It’s not the best section. But a nice walking surface.

    Congrats on getting to Salamanca, nearly half way now I guess. Yes that plaza major is a good one, I was there for an evening concert some years back.
