On the Camino de Santiago, Day 19: A peregrina spends the whole day under the weather, and part of the day under the table

Day 19: El Burgo Ranero to Puente Villarente: 25.4 km, 7.5 hours (Total for Days 1-19 = 454 km (282 miles)

This list pretty much sums up my day:

Eat two bananas

Walk 13.1 kilometers

Nap

Walk 6.2 kilometers

Nap

Eat half an apple

Walk 6.1 kilometers

Crash

Keaki. Lorraine. Karen. Kathy. Thanks to them I was able to get through today's walk. My original goal of reaching León was discarded almost as soon I began walking. At every town, while the others sipped on hot coffee and nibbled delicious treats, I curled up on the sidewalk using my backpack as a pillow.

We finally reached the albergue and I crashed. A shower seemed like an impossible task. I woke for an attempt at dinner and conversation - both were only a partial success - and crawled right back into bed.
