Another day in paradise. I have to defer to my sister and Lyn. You cannot compare the paradise as mine is equally as fabulous and so different.
Had a wonderful communal dinner last night at Larrasoana with many other pilgrims I have met on the way. I love the albergue’s as it is usually €10 euros a night to stay and then an extra €13 for a 3 course meal with lots of bottles of red wine. It is so cheap and it is a good hearty meal to fill you up after a big day of walking.
The comraderie and friendships you form as you walk are wonderful.
Had a fabulous nights sleep as you can imagine walking 30kms a couple of red wines and I was out for the count.
Met a lovely American couple T and Roland from San Francisco and I was blogging and T was journaling which I think is the same but an American term. We were laughing together as we were sharing stories and getting tidbits of what we had both written.
So up this morning. Had a sleep in today and didn’t wake up until 6.35am. Whooppee!!!
It was dark but decided I wasn’t going to walk in the dark anymore as, funnily enough, you can’t see!!!
Packed up and we were all sitting downstairs waiting for first light to set off. Today I walked with my new friend Donna from Victoria, Canada
We started the day walking beside a river which was beautiful and the path beside it was like something out of a fairytale
We walked 4kms down the road for breakfast and had zucchini tortilla and tea for breakfast. The delicacy here is tortilla but to me it is a frittata. It is delicious. You can get potato (the speciality) zucchini, mushroom or cheese. Very yummy
This was a tiny place called Akeretta
We then started to come to the outskirts of Pamplona and the countryside changed to very cute villages and houses. The beauty of walking the Camino is that you can’t get lost. No matter where you are there are signs everywhere. When you get to the cities the yellow arrows or the sign of the Camino which is a yellow scallop shell is on the pavement on the street corners or signs everywhere even through the main streets of Pamplona
Here are a few extra snaps of the way into town and around
And having the regulation sangria
Life is good. Buenos noches me amigos
