24th day. Villafranca del Bierzo to La Laguna

May 5, 2013

Sunday 2013-05-05

Walked from Villafranca del Bierzo to La Laguna, 27 km

Started at 06:40 and finished at 13:00

Total distance covered: 623,7 km

Remaining distance: 153,3 km

Meta and I started early. Still dark. Walked along the road until we came to Trabadelo, where we stopped for coffee. We walked fast. It took us less than two hours for the first 10 km.

Nice weather today. In Ruitelan we stopped for  our second break. I changed into t-shirt and short pants, getting ready for the big climb up the mountain. I remembered how tough it was last time and I have had some anxiety for this walk today. The climb is 600 m for a 5 km distance, which is quite steep. We walked with small steps and stopping to catch our breath. On the way up we met cows coming down.

We stopped in La Faba on the 900 m level and had a cold drink and resting a little bit. We continued the last 3 km and arrived to La Laguna albergue at 13:00, which is a good time for this distance and climb.

Tomorrow Meta and I will start early as usual and walk up to O Cebreiro and further on to Triacastela.
