…yesterday I began walking out of the Bavarian town of Eichstatt at around 5pm. It was an uphill walk which led me immediately to a beautiful little church on the hill, overlooking the town.
My original plan was to stop somewhere either just before or just after the town of Eichstatt, but I found myself with excess energy and from the church on the hill overlooking the town I walked off into the early evening and then the early night. My head lamp came in super handy when the night came and I was able to follow all the Camino signs in the forest, until I lost my energy and decided it was time to kip down for the night.
The walk from Eichstatt to where I am staying this evening (the village of Buchdorf, which is about 10km from Donauworth) has been largely up and down slightly annoyingly high – but not too high – grassy hills, and the remaining time through quite uninspiring woodland. Still, the overall scenery remains tranquil and when I reach Donauworth tomorrow I will be back by the river Danube again. Incidentally, between the town of Rennertshofen and the village of Buchdorf there is a monastery in the village of Schweinspoint where they let me shower up and any opportunity for a shower is a welcomed opportunity.
I’m absolutely exhausted today and will write more about the great positive event which happened this evening, tomorrow.
