Day 8 – head in the clouds.

So that was a relatively easy day.
13 miles and pretty much flat. Still travelling across the mountain ridges, a few thousand feet above see level.
The morning began with what Galicia is famous for, as in England, they have a lot of rain. Its what keeps this green and pleasant land so fertile. So I got a bit wet but it doesn’t last long and the Sun eventually burns you dry.
A lot of trekking is through farmland,  in fact I’m beginning to think that the whole of Northern Spain stinks of cow shit. But you get used to it after a while.
184km travelled in 8 days (115 miles)
I hope to reach SdeC in 5 days, giving me a touristy rest day before travelling home.
I’ve caught man flu, because the weather is so changeable, but it doesn’t seem to be slowing me down yet.
The last walking day is big (25 miles) and I can chop it in half if I need to, but really would like that rest day. Hopefully adrenalin will pull me through.
122km to go (76 miles)
