Our first day's walk.
Us with all our gear. The yellow arrow is the sign for the Camino path. Galicia is very green and the plants in the hedgerows are those of England. The trees are oak, chestnut, elm, birch. It is a rolling countryside and bits of it are every bit as steep as the worst of the Malvern Hills. The bus met up with us three times, provided water and suitable snacks. The guide disapproves of sweet things and fresh fruit,nuts and fruit biscuits are provided. I was ticked up for taking a chocolate digestive. Why are they provided then?
We walked 18.7 km and at various points, I thought I had reached my limit but no I did reach the end.
The upper photo is a object found all over the place. Despite it's elegant appearance, it is for storing grain. And the lower photo is of a typical farm building in a small village.
I am happy to have successfully completed the first day but am wondering about tomorrow when we walk 24.3 km.
