The return of an errant blogger…

Camino Mozárabe (Camino Sanabrés) – day 48 – Silleda to Outeiro 25.7 km

I have to recommend last night’s private albergue. The service to price ratio was excellent and the menu del dia was good value. It was such a treat to sleep in a single storey bed, with no snorers or light-shiners … Continue reading
