Camino 1: Irún - ItziarJune 21 in Spain ⋅ 🌧 16 °C
Well, I will feel that one in the morning! Leaving Irún was incredible this morn climbing up into the ridged hill outside of town to take me all the way to Pasaia just outside San Sebastián.
Pasaia is a beautiful cobbled village adjacent to the sea and has a nice 2min boat to ferry you to the other side for quick access to Donostia.
Then a quick passing by Donostia/San Sebastián/Surfers paradise, whatever you call it, before heading up into the hills again.
Beautiful farmhouses and country lanes following the Camino. Some difficult and interesting terrain, a bit challenging for the gravel but still great fun and really remote.
Next stop Orio, but disappointed as it's nothing to do with small round chocolate American biscuits.
Then into Zarautz and onwards to the Zumaia/Deba region with a national park dedicated to unique flysch rock formations by the coast. Best seen at low tide.
Aiming for Deba, but heavens opened up, plus lightening and hail, so checked into Itziar for the eve.
