    Gerendiain to Zubiri

    April 26 in Spain

    Hola from Spain! Thank you for checking in. Got up at 630 am. Had breakfast at the hotel...coffee, bread & jam. Started walking at 8am, shooting for Larsorona or Pamplona but stopped at Zubiri. The trail was hilly, rising and descending and realized that I wouldn’t get to Pamplona till late and larsorona had limited WiFi and only one unreliable pub so I opted to lay up in Zubiri. Zubiri is an industrial town with a magnesium factory/mine with a population of 435. It has a gothic bridge dating back to the Middle Ages. I arrived around 2pm and got a decent alberge for 15 euro...so about $18 with breakfast included. I got some laundry done...with only two sets of clothes, you do it often. I saw the town which didn’t take long, got some dinner...Chorizo, cheese and some kind of spicy peppers and ate it next to the river with my feet in the water. Headed to Pamplona in the morning...all flat terrain I hear. Take care and thanks!Read more

    Zubiri to Pamplona

    April 27 in Spain

    Hey everyone, as usual, I appreciate everyone checking out my blog. I started my day at 0630...on the road to Pamplona at 0730 after breakfast. The breakfast was provided by the albergue I stayed at last night. French bread, coffee and jam. One thing I have figured out..if breakfast is provided at no extra charge, it will be bread, coffee and jam. But, it works well enough. I had left over chorizo and cheese from last night for lunch. About a third of the way to Pamplona, I was sitting on the side of the trail tending to a hotspot on my foot with moleskin when two women from day one came along...Karen from the Netherlands and Elaine from Phoenix...who I call “Phoenix” instead of Elaine. They invited me to hike with them for the rest of the day and we’re joined by a woman from Brazil...Chandra. We made it to Pamplona around 3:30, and went our separate ways. I found a hostel, private room, for 40 euro, ($50 US)right off the main square. I headed out again around dinner time and ran into Phoenix, some of her friends and the young Russian girl who I crossed the Pyrenees with. Weird that I would find them in a large city so we figured it was meant to be so we had dinner of tapas and wine together. We are all walking tomorrow to Puente la Reina. That’s it for now....thank you for checking in!Read more

    Roncesvalle-Zubiri

    May 23 in Spain

    Die Nacht im Zelt war super..... hab herrlich geschlafen, gegen 9.00 dann aufgebrochen Richtung Zubiri. Der erste Weg führte gleich durch den "Hexenwald", dort sollen sich seit Alters her Hexen rumtreiben. Das Kreuz soll die Pilger beschützen. Gesehen hab ich keine, aber man weiß ja nie.....😊 Der Weg war nur knapp 21 km lang und recht einsam. Zudem sehr schattig. Eigentlich war der Plan 7 km weiter zu laufen, aber der Regen, die Blase am Fuß und meine Mitpilger Aaron und Marc haben mich überzeugt in Zubiri zu bleiben.
    Wir haben dann auch noch eine Unterkunft gefunden.... 3 Bettzimmer. Am Abend gab's dann Reis mit Gemüse und ein "Feierabend"- Bierchen.

    Erstaunlich viele deutsche Pilger sind hier unterwegs. Australier und Amerikaner auch..... sind alle super nett und gesprächig, da fällt es oft schwer mal die Ruhe zu finden 😏

    Naja, das war Tag 2.... es kommen ja noch einige.

    Ich hoffe Euch geht's allen gut. Liebe Grüsse in die Heimat.

    Day 3 to Zubiri

    April 28 in Spain

    We walked 9 miles to Zubiri today, dodging sprinkles and trying not to lose our footing on some rocky and muddy paths. Lots of pilgrims today because of the May Day holiday, and tonight every bed in town is occupied.
    We walked from one small village to another, passing by green pastures and well kept homes. We had some difficult climbs but nothing like yesterday, and now we have some time to rest before we walk to Pamplona tomorrow.

    I don’t know which part of the cow that was that I had for dinner, but it was delicious!

    Camino Stage 2: Roncesvalles to Zuburi

    September 28, 2016 in Spain

    Date: 9/28/2016
    Distance: 22.3 km, 13.9 mi

    Day two of crossing the Pyrenees... this time, down, down, down. Add everything that's sore from Stage 1 to everything that's sore today from Stage 2, and it makes for one wobbly 50 yr-old. One more stage (day) to get to Pamplona followed by a rest/recovery/exploring day

    Zubiri

    April 30, 2017 in Spain

    We're staying in a fully booked 4 bunk room at the Suseia, which means "and further upward" and needs a bit of historical context to make sense. In medieval times, when people crossed paths on the Camino, they would say ultreia (meaning 'further onward') and the response would be et suseia. I totally got a little jolt of happiness because of that. 🤓

    The sky opened up and it began 🌧just as we got into town, I'm glad we didn't have to descend a slippery 1,500 ft... It almost makes going through the creepy forest super early this morning worth it, almost. 😱Read more

    St Jean PIED de Port to Valcarlos Sp

    September 12, 2017 in Spain

    Day 3 Sunday
    Started our caminho! Hiked down to town to attend a Basque mass with many other pilgrims. We didn't understand it but it was still beautiful and emotional. We hiked 8 miles up and down beautiful hillsides (mostly up and up and up) to Valcarlos. Oh, and of course we were blessed with rain. Tired we arrived at our hillside casa rural. There, we met a 71 year old woman hiking alone. We had a great dinner and great conversation by a warm fire.Read more

    Bordeux to St Jean Pied de Port

    September 12, 2017 in Spain

    Day 2 Saturday
    We drove to Lourdes to visit another Pilgrim site, Santuary Our Lady of Lourdes. This is where Virgin Mary appeared to Bernadette. An emotional moment as this was a place my mother wanted to visit when I took her to France.
    We dropped off our rental and rushed through a thunder storm to catch our train. It was filled with caminho pilgrims, all going to St Jean Pier de Pont, our official starting point.Read more

    Valcarlos to Espinal

    September 12, 2017 in Spain

    9.11 Monday
    Still raining and cool, we treched uphill again. This time, steeper, through mud and rocks, and constant rain. Prayed to God a lot. More than 15 miles over the Pyrenees took longer than expected but the beauty of all around us was still amazing. Having a warm hot shower at the end of the day was enough reward.
