Stage 30: Puebla de Sanabria to Requejo 12km

Shortest day by far. For one thing, it was incredibly hard to leave the luxury of the white room in Hostal Carlos V. Second was the dramatic forecast of snow and thunderstorms and temperatures of minus eight degrees in the mountains (and we’re assuming the albergue in Lubian isn’t heated because we stayed there 2 years ago). Third? Thirdly.. I was in need of a sleeping bag day. So, arriving in Requejo, after a few hours in the snow, and looking towards the mountains with low cloud and snow, imaging wolves and hungry pigs; and here a bar with a wood burner, cognac, and a the promise of a warm albergue.. the decision was made.

It was the right decision. It’s warming up a little tomorrow. Planning an early start (7am breakfast in the bar across the road) and pushing into Galicia, with its obligatory paper sheets and pillowcases.
