    Pamplona

    June 24 in Spain

    Pamplona...WOW! We arrived into the old city around noon today just as our albergue was opening. We are staying at de Jesús y María, and I’m residing on the top bunk again (I think I am getting better at it 🙂). Our albergue is in the old town, so it was easy to spend the afternoon/evening exploring the streets and plazas. I think a person could spend days winding around the narrow streets, nooks and crannies of this city.

    What was amazing to us was how many people we ran into that we had already met earlier on this journey...Noel, David, Helene, Ariel, Nadia and her husband, etc. Our Camino family seems to be forming.

    Alan couldn’t get enough of the octopus tapas here, whereas I was thrilled to find out that KitKats here are just like the ones in Canada...WAY better chocolate 🍫!

    We have found the local people to be so kind everywhere, and two times today we had people show us the way to go when they saw us struggling.

    Tomorrow, we head to Puenta la Reina...about 14 miles. No blisters, yet, knock on wood...just tired legs and shoulders.

    12 Miles to Pamplona

    April 29 in Spain

    This was our first full 12-mile day, plenty of small hills and a few bigger ones that tested us. We were surprised by a street market and parade as we walked through the Pamplona suburbs — May 1 is a major holiday throughout Europe, so it’s been a 5-day holiday weekend and every town is packed.

    We’re staying at an albergue with these pod beds, complete with lockers, lights and electric outlets — quite luxurious by albergue standards. And a washer and dryer!

    Tomorrow we’ll climb Alto de Perdon, the Hill of Forgiveness, about 2500 feet. More tomorrow —

    Zubiri & Pamplona

    September 10, 2016 in Spain

    Fri, Sept 9: More cool, comfortable travels from Roncesvalles to Zuburi - a little over 20km. Beautiful views and towns along the way as well as a pilgrim terrier named Yogi.

    Sat, Sept 10: Another 20-some km to Pamploma! Sun was out and temp was up, but not quite so brutal as first day. More hiking through forest and a lovely town or two.
    Lost a trekking pole off a bridge as I was admiring the view, but nope, didn't get a pic as I tried instead to recover the pole. No luck, but one pole still comes in handy.
    Pamplona is fantastic & a great place to people watch. I found a swingset too!

    Hot day in Pamplona

    August 24, 2016 in Spain

    According to my Fitbit, I've walked 19 miles today. Fortunately, we arrived in Pamplona around 1:00, before it was too hot.

    Etappe 3: Pamplona (-717km)

    October 6, 2016 in Spain

    Dieser dritte Tag war echt hart, auch wenn es "nur" 20km durch relativ ebene Gebiete ging. V.a. die letzten 5km vor Pamplona haben sich gezogen, bis wir endlich im Zentrum angelangt waren!
    Aber es ging uns allen so mit den letzten beiden Tagen in den Beinen. V.a. aber den Jungs mit den riesigen, vier Hautschicht-dicken Blasen (und den 15+kg-Rucksäcken - da soll einer mal sagen wir Frauen nehmen immer zu viel mit... 😉)
    Ich konnte mich zumindest zuerst mit einem Bierchen und später sogar noch mit einer Tüte Gemischtes belohnen! Ja, das gibt's in Spanien! 😄
