We walk 12 days from Carrión de los Condes to O Cebreiro. The first part is still flat (and hot), but then our legs start to learn again what climbing is when we reach the highest point of the road to Santiago. We end at the border of Galicia, not knowing yet that we will only continue after two and a half years.
