Today, you should get into the swing of the Camino.
Enjoy a tortilla pincho before setting out, perhaps at Tío Pepe and in around 3.5 hours you'll hit Hospital de Orbigo, a great place to stop for lunch.
Power up, because you'll then hike another 3 hours to Astorga.
Shortly before reaching the city, make sure to say hi to David, who runs a small, open air bodega of free food (you can contribute as well).
He also has beds in the back and it's a good place to chat with other pilgrims.
