Walking notes by Rob Steele
Our Final days walking was a great mixture of wild rugged countryside and gently rolling hills on some Beautiful paths and a minor road for the last 8k into Melide. Not so many opportunities for coffee / lunch breaks on this day as we were passing through a very sparsely populated area of Galicia. We did however manage to find a friendly person (Mapy) who invited several Perigrino's in for coffee and also a couple of small bars for a snack and a coffee as we got nearer to Melide.
