Ease of terrain: 4/10 - pretty flat today, just a few steep little sections

Challenges: didn’t sleep particularly well - due to a person snoring 💤 (so loud - even with ear plugs!) woke up at 6am - decided to just get up and get walking.

Highlights: 16 miles done by 11.30am. Got to the albergue and got in the queue- about 20 people ahead of me and there is room for 70 so felt confident I’d get a bed which I did! Headed to the local supermarket and had a nice lunch - sat outside and relaxed. Not much else to do apart from the enjoy the weather ☀️😀

I’ve also booked accommodation for the next 2 nights!! Using website
