Giorajonn beirt bothar: Two people walking together shortens the road- Irish proverb shared with me by Gerard and David from Ireland

Day 25. I left Astorga about 7 this morning and arrived at my destination, Rabinal del Camino,  about 12:30. I was lucky to walk the last 1.5 hours into town with Justin, an Australian, whom I met coming out of El Ganso on my way to Rabinal. Today I also met Kevin and Charlotte from London and we shared a nice conversation in Santa Catalina at a bar for a rest stop. I keep running into Rick from Georgia, whom I met on day 12 in a bar the morning of the 9 hour walk in the rain and hail. I ran into him about 4 times today. So odd how that happens. Rabinal del Camino is a small town that has developed a somewhat bohemian feel. The weather the past few days has been unseasonably hot. Tomorrow I start ascending to the highest parts of the Camino and expect the weather to be somewhat cooler.

  2. Hi Kathy, I am following your progress on the camino with great interest & huge admiration of your commitment & persistence. Your photos are fabulous & show David & me what lies ahead for us when we resume “our camino” in September 2018, please God. I send you an old Irish blessing as you commence your climb towards Ponferrada & beyond: “Go neirí an bóthar leat!” meaning “May the road rise with you!”
    Buen camino, Kathy!
    Gerard.
