Having impressed myself by being brave enough to phone a Spanish hostel which doesn’t do online booking, we now have somewhere to stay in Leon on Wednesday night. From there it is just an hour’s bus ride to Astorga, where we plan to start walking on Thursday morning. I’ve even worked out where in Astorga we can get the pilgrim passport credencial we’ll need so we can stay in pilgrim hostels en route :-).
Today’s dilemma is whether I can bring myself to cut out the pages from the first half of our Camino guide book – we did end up with two copies as a result of Amazon’s incompetence. Or would it be less Philistine to pack one fewer T-shirt?
