Day Sixty Four

My alarm goes off, I wake Jaz who gets down from the top bunk and joins me. We get up and pack before having some breakfast. It’s just gone 7am by the time we leave. There’s a chill in the air as we’re walking in fog.
The walk passed over an old bridge crossing a beautiful river in a very nice village. The route carried on climbing and falling over hills and through more eucalyptus woods passing round small villages.
Jaz wasn’t enjoying the walking as much today, her feet were sore, she swaps to walking in sandals, I carry her bag for a while. It’s a long day and after a short stop for a baguette and a drink we eventually arrive in Olveiroa around 3.30pm. Today has gone extremely slowly.
I ask about buses at the albergue for tomorrow for Jaz, I think she’s had enough of walking… I do manage to get her to walk to the bar for some food after we’ve cleaned up and siesta’d, but it’s not easy. The food is crap so we call it a night!

Recently I’ve found myself longing for adventure and decided it was time to begin planning. Another thing I decided was if I was going to do this, I may as well try and raise money for charity along the way. So the story begins...
