It is always a great day when you share an experience with a loved one and today as Chloe walked beside me on the Camino, it sure was a happy day.
We left Ponferrada a little later than expected as we slept in a bit but we knew it was going to be only a 23.5km day, so we weren’t stressed. The trail took us mostly through vineyards and small quaint towns like Camponaraya and Cacabelos before heading up the hill to Pieros.
Chloe and I decided to take the slightly longer but scenic route going up and over paths through vineyards before arriving in Villafranca del Bierzo.
The albergue we were aiming for was closed and the two other hostels full so we are again staying in a hotel. The view outside the window ominously shows that tomorrows hill climb is looming. Time for a siesta!
