Not long now before Hazel, Steffi and I head off to Northern Spain for our week walking in the Picos de Europa, with Exodus*.
The Yr.no forecast for Las Arenas de Cabrales says it’s going to be sunny!
OK, there is a bit of rain, but not many millimetres.
Looking the spare bed pile I reckon I’m going to be taking more to the Picos than I do to Nepal. Probably not a bad thing seeing as we will be in company and it’s not really de rigueur to wear the same clothes for a week on the trot.
Having read some of the recent reviews and refreshed myself on the trip notes, I am taking:
- ear plugs …. due to cow bells!!!!
- a brolly. There must be sections when we won’t need to use poles. And hopefully I won’t need it.
I have my Euros, just as the exchange rate drops even further. Thanks for nothing, Brexit.
Insurance / Optional Activities
I checked my travel insurance cover regarding the optional activities on offer for the spare day:
Today is free for you to visit the coast or try a spot of caving, self-guided canoeing or canyoning. Our local staff will be able to help organise any of these activities.
and only canoeing gets a mention:
Grade 1 and 2 only
So it’ll be that or a visit to the coast, or maybe another day out in the Picos….
I am looking forward to there being a bar….
* If you want details, you’ll need to find the trip on the Exodus website. They don’t like me linking to it. It spoils their SEO. Really?
