This past June I hiked over 130 kilometers with my dad on the Camino de Santiago in Galicia, Spain. I’m sharing that journey in a series of blog posts day-by-day. This is Day 6; feel free to go back and start with Day 1!
This day was rough for me.
Padrón to O Faramello: 10.4 kilometers
It was the shortest distance day on our Camino, but my head hurt and I didn’t feel mentally prepared for yet another day of walking. My mood was cheered by getting to our albergue at a decent time, and seeing Brianna and Arende at our lunch stop. I was overcome with emotion when Arende said she had a present for me and handed over several blister care items she had bought just for me.
The beds were terrible and we didn’t get great rest, but we were only 13.5 km away from Santiago de Compostela…
