Day 9 – Zafra to Villafranca de los Barros Videos

Not a great sleep last night. There were a lot of partying going on right outside my room. But nevermind, today is a relatively okay day in terms of distance – 20 kms. So, I’m going to have a slow and steady day.

I was hoping to stop in the first village for coffee, but unfortunately, there was no bars open, but there was this amazing smell of fresh bread all over the village. Then I discovered there was a fresh bread fan where all the locals were queuing up for. But I was up for coffee, not bread. Later on the walk, I found a great lunch spot at a rather interesting alburgue. At the end of the day at the Villafranca de los Barros, fate was good to me because I had an amazing room and a hostel for €30, which was a much better sleep, than a far more expensive room that I had in Zafra the night before. Then of course I had to ponder the next day because this is the infamous 27 kilometer-day to Torremijia.

    Tip from a light sleeper Rob, I use wax earplugs, absolutely essential. They eliminate traffic noise/kids/drunks/fiestas. Available from Boots Chemist in UK but you’ll probably find similar items in Spain
