I will never be able to run against the wind.
Today it was extremely hard to WALK against the wind. It was 22.9km of hard slog from Santo Domingo to Belorado. The wind was gusting up to 36km/hr and the temperature was as low as 4 degrees (as per the weather forcast at the Tourist Information). Not a great day to walk, more a day to curl up with a good book. Although speaking with the Scottish couple Willy and Noreen (Willy celebrated his 70th birthday yesterday), they thought it was a lovely day!
Always perspective on the Camino.
Apart from the weather, today’s walk followed the main road for most of the way so the scenery was less spectacular than usual. I was very grateful to be met by Tania at the edge of the old town who guided me to our Albergue for the night.
We are currently sitting in the dining room (me closest to the heater) with other pilgrims writing journals and reading emails. We have paid for the pilgrim meal tonight so after we eat, it’s a short stumble to our bunk bed down the corridor ready for another big day against the wind tomorrow.
