Fuente Cacabelos to Trabadelo – 25.2 km/15.3 miles


Greetings! We are in the middle of the mountains again after crossing the valley between Ponferrada and Villafranca del Bierzo. Tomorrow we are facing the second steepest climb on the Camino going up to O’Cebreiro. l just hope we don’t have to deal with rain and fog as we did on route Napoleon the first day in June. Plus, I’d like to enjoy the view. Got word on the Camino forum that a 43 year old Canadien pilgrim has died on the Camino between SJPDP and Roncesvalles. I remember route Napoleon as very, very challenging and can see someone falling of the cliff. Also in┬ácontrary to my statement from yesterday…Hostals are not available in these mountains….so Albergue it is and slow internet. We are now under 200 km from Santiago.

  1. the pictures are absolutely stunning. here is hoping you won’t encounter any bedbugs along the way ­čÖé and NO RAIN

    sad to read that someone passed away along the “Walk”, but it does go to show that it is not a “walk in the park”. Hats off to you two for doing this.
