50 Days of Camino

Kevin Soltysiak's travel log of the way of St. James, the "Camino de Santiago"

Barbadelo — Palas de Rei

I woke up and left early, around the same time as Krista’s, but we didn’t stay together long. I was happy being on my own that day since I had planned a long one, around 42km. I ran into the irishmen and Jenny: they hadn’t gone far after they left the hotel, it seemed!

I reached Portomarín around 11 and took an early lunch there, then I kept walking almost non-stop to Palas de Rei.

I didn’t meet anyone I knew on the road which suited my plans just fine. I reached the city shortly before the end of the afternoon, as it was starting raining. I couldn’t find the albergue I was looking for so I checked into a fancier one for once. No restrictions once again !

And it turned out that Krista had also made it to Palas de Rei, though she stayed in another albergue; she finally had decided to walk without waiting for the others for once. We grabbed a quick beer before going to bed and she did seem to feel better and cheerful again!
