Rob Steele's walking notes
We were expecting this to be a 26k day so it came as a bit of a shock to discover that it was actually 10k longer at 36k !! The reason for this was a combination of poor information and laziness by myself with not double checking the route !! The days walking started off with a stiff climb to La Campa, then more fairly gently rolling countryside, mainly walking on minor roads through more small villages with plenty of opportunities for coffee and lunch breaks to Oviedo, the walk into Oviedo was through suburbs but it was still a pleasant, if longer than expected days walking.
