Day of Rest in León, Spain

Yesterday I took the day off to talk and explore the city of León. I had to leave the albergue at 8:00 am, but was able to return at 11:00 am to check back in. I went to a cafe close to the albergue and hung out for a bit until it was time to check back in.

The main touristy thing I did that day was go to the Cathedral. I have seen my fair share of churches and cathedrals over the past year, but this one was pretty sweet. The high ceilings and stained glass were pretty impressive.

 Afterwords I headed to a park close to the albergue to relax and read a book for a bit. The weather was perfect and I didn't really want to do much so it was nice to sit around and rest after a long day of biking the day before.

I walked around for a bit and got a bite to eat then packed everything up and got ready for my next day to Astorga. The next couple of days will be pretty easy, but I will soon be hitting the mountains which will be a rough couple of days.
