What a wonderful days walking today. A mostly cool day made for an enjoyable traversing of the Portuguese countryside from Coimbra to Mealhada
We left Coimbra along the bank of the Mondego River. We walked through a few small towns and then stopped for coffee and breakfast (rolls from the hotel, and organic peanut butter bought yesterday at a store) in Trouxemil.
We met more pilgrims on the road today than in all the other days combined; 2 woman from Australia who had just started their Camino in Fornos, the second town we walked through this morning, 2 young chaps who we did not get to meet and a delightful, super fit 76 year old Icelandic gent 🇮🇸, Bragi who kept us company for most of today’s walk which made the road even shorter.
Checked into our evening accommodation, Quinta dos Tres Pinheiro’s and are now planning tomorrow’s overnight stay.
