Santiago to Albergue Vilasari, October 18, 2016
My dogs are not only barking, but howling! We left around 7, with the first 1/2 hour walking through the quiet empty streets of Santiago.
We quickly found a place open serving cafe. They aren’t typically open but on the Camino route you can find them open this early for pilgrims. We walked out of town and looked for the familiar yellow arrows and markers.
The difference is, is the the markers begin to count down the miles that you have to do to make it to the ocean.
It was a very long day, a lot of ups and downs but the day was a beautiful day for hiking. We came across this wonderful water fountain for pilgrims to soak their feet. It was cold, but refreshing and helped us with the last 5 k.
