I left Porto and saw an albergue on the map, only 35 km away. Although I had in mind to run more than that today, I felt like destiny put the albergue in my way, so one can’t ignore fate, right? If the app showed it to me, I must get there, I thought. And I got there, but not before crossing a bridge from where I could admire many noisy mallards. I took off my shoes and sat barefoot while I watched the sunset. Freedom!
When we arrived at the albergue, I realized that I really became a wild man, because instead of sleeping in bed, I felt the need to sleep in my tent. I set it up in the albergue’s garden and I allowed myself the luxury of borrowing a pillow and a blanket. I slept like a boss.
