Walking notes by Rob Steele
Day 5 dawned badly with my walking companion, Stevie being unable to continue, His feet were badly blistered, a combination of the extra miles and he wet weather. So he decided to take a few days off to see whether they would recover sufficiently for him to be able to re-join me alter on in the walk. My original plan was to walk around 20k to Borres, but I felt good, the weather had improved so I decided to keep going all the way to Pola de Allende which turned out to be a good decision !! The route was ever more becoming more mountainous with higher "Alto's" to cross and deeper valleys to plunge into, but the paths were good and there were sufficient villages with small bars / shops to be able to find lunch and coffee stops. A Great days walking !!
