O Porrino to Arcade


Today was a fairly long day but we started early. We left before  8:00 am in the morning so that we could walk as much of the section as possible before it got too hot. It was a good start and and the scenery was magnificent,  passing through old towns and little houses. We stopped for some tea and coffee at a local cafe  where a couple of us tried out our skills with a couple games of fooseball. We started again after not too long and continued our journey later starting our 20 minutes of silence which gave us all a chance to walk with our thought  and have some peace and quiet whilst reflecting and listening to nature. Spirits were high for most of the time until the last 5/6 kilometres where the students and teachers alike started to get weary. We were close to the town of Arcade but those last few hills looked like mountains. After arriving in the town we spent a while looking for our hotel going back and forth over a bridge and asking a few locals but when we made it to the hotel it was straight to the showers and then a quick rest before finishing the day off with a shared paella,  a good time and our evening reflection.
