Day 32 – Riego De Ambros to Camponaraya I hiked in the dark this morning with 5 other people who spoke French but that doesn’t mean they were from France.

Day 19 – Burgos to Castrojeriz As you can see I got my bike! Ok let’s back up… I woke up this morning and had to say goodbye for the last time to Feena.
