VDLP Day 27 – Calzada de Valdunciel to El Cubo. 20.7 kms today.
Well, a lot of people report that this particular day or ‘section’ is not a great one. I didn’t mind it actually.
It was a great walking surface all day. Okay, it was very close to a motorway, the N-630 most of the way, and you also go past one of the local prisons. But the walking surface and the views at least on one side of the path were fairly good. It was just a bit monotonous going along basically a straight path all day long.
And coming into El Cubo, we stayed at a really nice albergue there, which also had private rooms. I managed to get a private room, and my two camino amigos managed to get a room with just four beds in it and again we found a very nice menú del día.
Well, there’s a day that I enjoyed, when a lot of people say “it’s not particularly interesting”, “it wasn’t good day’s walk”. Topped off with a very nice meal at the end of the day and good company.
For me, every day on Camino is a good day! 🙂
We stayed at the Albergue Torre de Sabre, which was the only open place in town at the time. It was OK. They also provide a communal meal, but that was a bit late for us, so we had a nice menu del dia lunch as a bar nearby. https://www.gronze.com/castilla-y-leon/zamora/cubo-vino/albergue-torre-sabre
