Day 4: 15.7 miles. A very long, hot day mostly following an old Roman road. I made a huge mistake when I offered to carry Laura's rucksack (as well as my own) for what I thought was the last mile. Turned out we still had about 3 miles to our destination. Chivalry sucks!
We stayed in an apartment next to the lovely Casa de Emaús. A dip in the pool was the perfect way to ease those aching muscles. And the evening meal was probably our best in Portugal. Ok, so there may have been one course of salted cod, but the mushrooms and coriander were excellent!
