Subjective feeling out of 10 on:

Challenges: Finding accommodation- 2 Albergues closed, needed to walk another 4 miles, the next place was full, taxi to another albergue - also full. The taxi lady then called a hostel for me and booked me a bed before dropping me off. I’m sorted for tonight - which is great. I’ve also managed to book for tomorrow night - which is a relief!

Subjective feeling out of 10 on:

Enjoyment: 8/10 - great weather and knowing I had a bed to stay in makes all the difference

Ease of terrain: 7/10 - some tougher sections today, some small steep uphill climbs and some long rocky descents.

Challenges: thought I’d lost my sunglasses 😢but I’d left them in the taxi, so got them back in the morning. I forget to collect my strawberries & red pepper that id prepared as a snack the evening before so it got thrown away. 👎

Highlights: stunning weather, seemed a little bit quieter out walking, not as many people.
