✨Saturday 28th September in the Camino Portugués ✨
☂️Águeda to Albergue de Peregrinos ‘Rainha D. Teresa’ (€8) in Albergaria-a-Velha
👌Today was such a super chilled and relaxed day. I took advantage of having the room until 12 and just woke up naturally- no alarm needed and had an easy morning. I grabbed a simple breakfast - rolls with butter and honey. I also made myself a packed lunch. Cheese rolls with biscuits.
I spend some time on social media and caught up with my sister @carolinewellingham who is over in Singapore 🇸🇬
⏰It was then 11.40 and I needed to finish my last minute packing before heading out. It was a beautiful walk out of the city.
🐦 Going past the river I saw a very cool piece of artwork. A gorgeous bird (which was actually done by the same artist who did the giant cat down by the waterfront in Lisbon)
🥾There was a lot of road walking today and one steep climb out of the city. But it was gorgeous especially toward the end when you were walking through forests.
🛏 The albergue is really nice, very clear, very large, lots of beds, plenty of space. The kitchen wasn’t working and the shower were a bit weird. Two showers next to each other with nothing separating them... not a massive fan!
I also caught up with the 3 cool American ladies I met a few days ago 😀.
🎥 I’ve started to interview a few women I’ve met on the Camino. But want to do more short little interviews and compile it together into a video - “Women of the Camino”. I did something similar while on the Appalachian Trail and it came out really well. I want to show the variety of different women out here who are doing the hike for many different reasons.
