Snowing in June WTF

Today I’m in Astorga, cute little city, did 31 km over beautiful farmland, foothills of the Galacian mountains. And yes they have snow. The closer I get, I keep thinking ” it will go away” . It hasn’t, worst spring/summer in Spain. Lots of concern for the crops, especially the vineyards . I’ve gone off the beaten path and stayed in nicer hostels , since Leon. Killing my budget, but I’m much happier. I will not do a bunk again !!!
I found I need a clean bed, hot shower and clean toilet, and some sense of privacy. I’ve discovered I’m high maintence. I finally feel I’m in a groove, no more complaining, I’m liking the solitude, enjoying the walking. Blisters, aches and all. However at the end of the day, I do look for old faces to connect. I’m also staying away from the pilgrim meals , so my new and old friends and i venture for a restaurant , couple bottles wine, laugh at each others stories. Good times. The funny thing I found, is i’ll never know if I’ll see them again. I can go entire day and not see a familiar face. Then at night still not see one, then days later, they’re they are. Best part. I have 11 days left before Santiago.
