Day 11: Barbadelo a Gonzar

We have officially passed Sarría, which means we are (almost) less than 100 kilometers to Santiago. The roads get more crowded as many people are walking the last 100 km to officially make the pilgrimage. (I hope this doesn’t come across as judgmental) (Side note: walking and kilometers throws off my sense of distance – 100 km sounds much further than it is)

It is drizzly. Then it is sunny. It is mostly green. 

We reach Portomarín around lunch. It feels busy with pilgrims, so we keep walking. 

Afternoons on the Camino make me a little nervous. It’s hotter. It feels like there are fewer places to stop. 

This afternoon hike is pleasant. We are able to walk mostly in the shade. There are still pilgrims, but it is not a crazy stream. 

So I guess afternoon hikes are not so bad after all. Maybe we are just more used to it.
