Day 21 - 28km

Left 6 15am and arrived 1 pm This was another of my favourite days. Passed through pretty villages and stopped in Rabanal to hold a falcon for couple of euros.

Loved Foncabadon - like a run down ghost town with more buildings crumbling than are occupied. The village i just one pathway through the village with a big cross agh entrance. It has about 3 allergies and a medieval restaurant. Doesn't seem to be many occupied homes. When I arrived there was beautiful views over the valleys below as we are quite high up now. Soon the mist rolled in and it was lovely and cold.

Our albergue ( was on the left and cost 5E) had a roaring fire going downstairs. I slept on a matttress on the floor under sloping roof in the attic...loved it. It was cold work washing my clothes by hand. I could have had dinner there but chose to eat venison at the medieval restaurant. Loved the building and decorations. Met up with Nick who I had met on day 2 and ate dinner with him and some others
