Camino Frances Day 5: Warmth, Giant Dolls, River Dips, and Evening Laughter | Day 256 of my 2023 Journal


Camino Frances. Day five.

Warmest day up to now. No wind, late start, no clouds.

Very beautiful and not too long, a walk of only nine kilometers.

Vilafranca del Bierzo gave us a bar next to the hostel, where we hung out drinking water while waiting for the taxi. As we were waiting, giant dolls came dancing down the street. Followed by a bagpipe orchestra. They paused at the same bar, sneaking out of the huge dolls to have a beer and cool down.

When the taxi had picked up the group going back for the van, we went to the river beach, where we had a wonderful cold dip and some rest.

In the evening there was a very amusing concert right in front of our restaurant of choice, and we laughed a lot!

A day with so many elements!

We slept in our van next to the river, under the stars, in the silence.

With love
