This year, I will be walking Camino Madrid from El Escorial through Segovia and Valladolid to Sahagun. I will have a few more days of walking and am currently thinking I might then walk from Astorga to Zamora on the portion of the Via de la Plata that I did not walk in 2014. In all it w=should be about 18 days and somewhere between 250 and 300 miles of walking.

Tabara 29 September
I took it a bit easier today at 15 miles to Tabara. I walked from one valley to another with a bit of mountainous area in between. I also crossed the Rio Esla and the beautiful bridge over it. I am now off the Via de la Plata and instead am walking the Camino Sanabres, which will take me mostly west through Orense. There is a lot of construction activity with a new freeway and a new high speed rail line to Galicia being built. This sometimes makes for long and/or difficult detours around or through these projects.
Yesterday, The freeway construction project that I had to find my own way across.
More country tracks today, good weather, no rain and relatively cool
