Day 18. Hontanas to Boadilla del Camino. 28.1k/17.5m

Further than we thought.
After a good night’s sleep, we had an early breakfast and were out of the door by 6.15a.m. The morning walk was beautiful, along the green valley before Castrojeriz. A hot drink and boots off for 10 mins and then up Alto Mostelares, before lunch at Itero de la Vega. A good part of the middle walk was past acres of wheat fields lined with poppies and cornflowers. Leone and I had left the decision on whether to travel on until Itero. It was still early, so we decided to walk the extra 8k to Boadilla. Despite a forecast of cooler weather, the afternoon was very hot. We took our time and made it by mid afternoon. We looked into the Municipal Albergue and decided that it looked really rough, so we moved on to En El Camino. What a great decision. The place is a bit of a Hippy Heaven, run by an artist called Begoña, whose paintings and sculptures adorn the converted barn house and grounds. We read and rested before dinner and were joined by the two American ladies we met yesterday.
