Stage 35: Xunqueira de Ambía to Ourense 22.7 km


A troubled night of snores, sneezes, sweats and smells. The realities of the Camino. But a glorious day of sunshine, a high of 26 degrees, and only a short walk downhill (mostly on tarmac) into town.

Putting my snow mitts and ski hat to the bottom of my bag, and retrieving the Ambre Solaire and sunnies. I have a good feeling.

A couple of beers in the sun and we dismissed the notion of another albergue night, agreeing instead upon a small hotel. Tomorrow we’re planning on crashing a monastery and staying with monks – having tried Franciscans and Carmelites, we’ve been assured that the Benedictines are particularly hospitable. Fingers crossed.
