Day 7 – Monesterio to Fuente de Cantos – VdlP Camino Blog & Video

Day 7 on the Via de la Plata.  It’s 20.7 kms from Monesterio to Fuente de Cantos.  A comfortable distance for me.

It was also my first day at leaving much earlier. I mean early ‘pre-dawn’.  I thought I might not find any breakfast, always a risk with a very early start, but just as I was leaving town I found somewhere open.

And today, I finally meet some other pilgrims!   They are leaving before dawn, that’s why I’ve been missing them.  I met up with a guy from Ireland and we swapped information about lodgings.  He hasn’t booked anywhere so might try where I’m staying.   I offer him a spare bed in case he can’t find anything.  But he does.

I ended up with a 2 bedroom apartment!  Check out the video below.

And right outside my window I get to see the local kids rehearsing for Semana Santa. Another great day on the VdlP!

    Hi Rob, There is a trend to cross Spanish Mastiff and Labrador, at least good for white dog and family dog. There are other crosses. Chris from Sydney.I
