We were up early, quite tired after disturbed sleep at night. We had no coffee, hoping against hope we will get some fuel before we have to climb up that hill. It was a long climb. I didn’t even feel like taking my camera out. We got to the top of the hill. My ankles were really swollen, took my boots off and lied down for a while but there was no improvement. We kept walking. It seemed like a very long day. We have passed two albergues in Rubiaes. Stopped for a while in Fontoura. And then literally dragged our feet to new private albergue Quinta Estrada Romano.
The place is very new, work still in progress but we gota very warm welcomed. Jessica and Nuno made sure we felt at home. Laundry was done and we were ordered to rest while the dinner was being prepared.
Albergue is donativo
Notes to the editor
Quinta Estrada Romano is marked on the map in the new guide (2014 edition) but intermediate accommodation section list Valenca only.
