#12 Tiles - Train Tracks - Tunnels!

✨29th September - Camino Portugués ✨

Starting from Albergaria-a-Velha and heading 20k to Oliveira De Azeméis.

I was meant to leave the Albergue by 8 am.... oops! I was still there at 10am. It’s quite cold in the morning about 13/14 degrees and I don’t want to go outside! I need to wait for it to warm up a little bit!

Today’s walk was a bit of a hilly stage with a few steep inclines, there was also plenty of forest walks and road walks. It took me about 4.5 hours to do the distance which I was really pleased with. I don’t really take many breaks when walking. I’ll stop for lunch if I feel like it - or else I just keep walking, slow and steady, just very consistent.

The 3 America ladies I’ve met (Kristen, Lisa and Alicia) have invited me to share a room when we get to Olivera de Azeméis- which works out super well, as it makes it much cheaper for me! There can be a single tax when travelling, it’s much cheaper to be able to split the costs with others. Especially things like accommodation.

The hotel is super nice - no mosquitos in here (I hope)! We headed out for dinner at a local Portugués place which was super nice. Plus lots of local people were eating there aswell which is always a good sign!
