Camino de Santiago Portugues Day 5

What a glorious day. Early morning cloud cover turned partly cloudy skies with a slight breeze – perfect walking weather.

No highways today! 

Wooded paths, floral paths, a few muddy paths and small town streets.

We love our coffee stops. Cafe con leite (milk) for 4 of us and cafe Americana for Chappy. 

Today we feasted on Mealhada’s local speciality Leitão à Bairrada (suckling pig). Delicious!

36,654 steps and 15.53 miles. 

Short day but our legs and feet are trashed – eating Ibuprofen like candy.
