Ran into Jesse from Australia and due to the 5 minutes we talked we missed getting the albergue we wanted. Giid thing! This Casa Rural was sooo much better.

If you're ever in El Acebo this is a great place.

  1. Lynda,

    Wonderful pictures.

    Funny thing, yesterday was the first day I attempted to organize my Camino photos. I now am yearning to get my boots back on the trail. Ah, well the Portuguese Camino is only 4 short months away!

    Buen Camino!
    Arlene
