Day 38 – Melide to Arzúa

Date: 29th May 2017

Departure time: 07:40

Arrival Time: 11:00

Distance: 13 kms

Cumulative Distance: 747 kms
Percentage Completed: 95.7%
Accommodation: Apartamentos Arzúa
Weather: Cloudy, periods of rain 20 degrees
Debra – Easy walk, unremarkable scenery
Mark – Déjà vu

Today was the shortest day that we had planned, and it was very similar to yesterday’s walk (which was very similar to the day before). As we all arrived early, all the girls and Mark took time to go to the hairdresser.  Female hair prices are about 1/3 of the cost of similar treatments in Australia, whereas the male 1 blade was about 1/2 the Australian price.

We are all staying together tonight in Apartmentos Arzúa which is extremely roomy and amazing value at a cost of €78. We have now less than 40 kilometres to walk over the next two days – an undeniable fact that is engendering very mixed emotions. Whilst it has still been very cloudy, there was much less rain about today and we are hoping for a dry finish.

  1. A fragrant, pretty walk. Must have been nice to be treated to a haircut, too! You’re looking fighting fit!
