Camino Levante - Day 13 La Puebla de Almoradiel

Finally we settle the day here after passing Quintanar de la Orden. 28 km and a long first day. Probably can only do 20 km the next 2 days since the towns will be further apart and almost no way to hack an ideal 25-30 km day no matter how try to plan. We will see how it goes. There is an albergue here (rarer in Camino Levante). Parish church room right behind the picture. Free, not even donativo. Yay! Mattress no beds, ok we got our sleep bags. Bathroom but no showers. What! Well, no choice but to pad ourselves down. Tomorrow will be a hostal so we can clean up better then. Bummer.

This year's is pretty quiet. Haven't see another pilgrim yet. But the rabbits living in the multi-storey holes are still here. Pretty soon it will be hunting season and some will probably be part of the Paella Valenciano.

Totally knackered now. I guess the first day is always the toughest but our body will get used to it. It's already quite a lot for the first day.
