A long 28 kilometres walked today. I am now on the Meseta – the large and expansive plains of Central Spain. I left Itero around 6.30 am and arrived in Boadilla de Camino just after 8 am where I had breakfast and my morning boost of caffeine with a very good cafe Americano. From Boadilla the path follows the canal del Castilla for 5 kilometres – I seemed to be on my own this morning – not another pilgrim in sight! The canal walk ends at a set of very impressive locks in Fromista. From Fromista much of the remainder of the journey was in temperatures of 30 degrees along an uninspiring path parallel to the highway. It was one of those days when I was so relieved to arrive at my destination for the night -Villalcazar de Sirga. Enjoyed dinner in the evening with Peter from Australia, Brendon from County Cork and Kordian from Poland.
