Today was not really that nice at all because it rained nearly all day and all the ground was muddy,wet and soggy. At some times it got sunny then went back down to rain again. Walking into Sarria really sucked because there were industrial factory's all the way into sarria.
This is an angel painting from the monastery that we went to with lots of angel and monk paintings and some were really amazing. Here is some pictures.
Today was the BEST DAY EVER on the camino. We RID HORSE'S up the pilgrim breaker and the STEAPEST part YES!!! And I got to steer the horse on every turn and I was amazed how calm they were because they just walked nice and steadley up the hills.
Today it was over 29 degrees and stinking hot and all along a road great.
We were really tired when we got to the town and we spent a long time looking for an albergue and found a really nice one.
We walked along the road to get to Trabadelo
Today we visited the Castle of the Knights Templar in Ponferrada and after we went to a little American cáfe and it had THE BEST SAUSAGE EVER on toast.
We had a relaxing day and walked along the road mostly.
Mum splashed out for a hotel as we were all tired and hot.
It had a Spa bath in it and mum had A SECOND bath cos SHE COULD.hahahahahahaha
Today we went up a huge hill to the iron cross and when we got up it was surrounded by lots of rocks and hats and things.
After the iron cross it was easy because it was all slightly down hill and next to a road and a forest.
Today was THE best day ever I GOT TO HOLD A HAWK. I got to hold a hawk and I got to PAT IT I got to pat a hawk how unbelievabley crazingly amazing is that.
It was a HUGE hawk for its size and actually very calm it didn't bite didn't hurt me it just standed there on MY HAND and was nice and calm to me.
Today we were planning for it to be cold and we got a big shock when the weather was actually nice and bright and sunny. All the flowers were blooming and butterflies were everywhere flapping there wings. Beautiful rabbits all hopping around in the flowers. Then when we got into Astorga there was chocolate shops everywhere because Astorga apparently had the best chocolate so we bought some and it was AWSOME.
Today was really really hard we did 22km I think. but at the end we stayed in a really nice alburge. Were deciding that we will stay on léon for 2 nights Walking into léon was really sucky because we had to go through lots of factory's.

Us in the cold.

Today I wore my onsie because it was cold. There were two ways you could take the road or the canal we took the canal way witch was very pretty. Each town has one of these bronze cut outs to say that pilgrims are suppose to pass through there and know that they are going the right way.
I fell over and skimmed my knee.
This is the view from where I was standing. Isn't it pretty.
It was hot all day.
We should have gotten up earlier but we can't get up.
Mum is trying to be patient with us. She doesn't yell at all.
Today was hot and there was not much shade at all. When we got into Fromista all the alburges were full by 1:00pm and we tryed to take a taxi or a bus but we couldn't find a bar with a phone so a kind lady lended us three beds to get put down on the floor for us to sleep on. we had to sleep on the floor in a church.

Today was hard. We went over a big hill at the start of the day and went past some sheep that looked like they had white masks on over there black skin. They looked like ninjas.
The way into Burgos was horrible because you had to go through lots of factory's for 7km and all on concrete. All the alburges were full so we had to go to a hotel we have a great view from our window. I have a room with just mum,Morgan and me YAY!!! This is the view from our window isn't it spectacular.
Saw this at the start of the day I like this dress.

The lessons you learn on the camino are mostly mistakes like when I dropped my really good walking stick in a river. That was a lesson that I learned to be more mindful so I picked a stone up from the destination that I lost my stick at and at the next camino sign I dropped it on the sign as a lesson I learned.

Today it was a 26 degrees day and was pretty hot and all up hill. We stayed in a really nice alburge at night. There were soft beds and nice pillows.
St Dominiga is famous for its roosters in the church.
Today was another hot day like usual and more than 26 degrees. Well it was quite peaceful because we got to go threw some really nice forests and saw lots of amazing flowers and butterflies so it was a nice day but still pretty hot.

Today was the hottest day ever in the whole camino. It was 26 degrees and that is why it was the worst day. We were planning on doing 15km but we actually did 20 because we couldn't find our little village so we walked on to Viana in the hot sun.

Ok I know what your all thinking it was an easy day but acutely it wasn't. Concrete is the worst thing to walk on and we were walking for 6ks and it was all on concrete and that is why it was a bad day but at least we got to the hotel in time.
