Thursday 28th May. Santiago to Vilalba. 62 miles.

Another tough day with big hills and still that strong wind! I’ve even had to peddle quite a lot when going down hill! I could hear the wind as soon as I woke up this morning rustling the leaves in the trees!  If I hadn’t already booked my ferry for the 1st June I would have stayed put today, but I don’t have any spare time, it’s a bit tight as it is without stopping another day! I’m hoping tomorrow that the wind will have stopped or maybe change direction but I’m not holding my breath, I think I might have it all the way to Santander! It’s been a lot cooler today especially with that wind that’s blowing from the northeast I’ve had my jacket on all day. Passed loads of people walking the Camino de Santiago some of them could hardly walk, they were walking as bad as I do! Didn’t get as far as I wanted to today, it was gone 5 o’clock and to do another 20 miles would have taken me at least another 3 hours and I really didn’t fancy another late night. The only trouble is the less miles I do each day make it harder to get to Santander on Sunday ready for my ferry on Monday!

  1. Even walking up hills must be tough with that load – like pushing a motor cycle. That devil wind!
