Lagartos, Spain - Polarsteps
Stayed at Albergue de Los Tenplarios
Today was a big day. Was originally shooting for 25-26k but ended up having to go 35k. A big trek from Carrion de los Condes to the next city...something like 17k uninterrupted. There was a cute food truck about half way through that I realize I didn't take a picture of. A lot of farmland and green plains. I was joking that it looks like the Microsoft desktop from the early 2000s.
I made it to Calzadilla de la Cueza and when I got there all the albergues were full so I figured I'd go to the next city 5k away, but I called ahead and they said they were also full. So I ran into a guy I had met earlier at a hotel and he said to try and get in touch w/ the albergue 2 towns over cuz he had a reservation he wasn't using. The hotel manager called ahead for me and got it squared away so I was off another 9k. Got in late but had a good meal and some good drinks and I was set.
