Re visiting my 2019 Camino

AUSTRALIA | Monday, 5 April 2021 | Views [25]

As it's two years since I walked the Camino Frances , I thought it was a good time to add the photos of my journey and some excerpts from my journal. I hope you enjoy them.

 

Day One: 10ks around St Jean Pied de Port

Pilgrim passport receiving its first stamp.

Outside my first hostel Beilari.

Shared accommodation with 2 ladies.

Buen Camino 👣👣

 
Day Two: 25ks Roncesvalles Monastery Pilgrim hostel, my bed for the night. The long climb up here. Snow at the top. All going well and meeting lots of interesting people from all over the world.

Day Three:

Roncesvalles to Zubiri. 18:5ks

Snowy start to the day, but good for walking.

from Spain not France, we’ve already walk well over 25ks before this sign, so maybe it will be 800+ by the end!

 

Day 4 Zubiri to Pamplona

Another wet cold day..

Following the sign.

Village for the next coffee stop in the distance.

Basque Country signage.

According to the guide book “it was easy flat walking day”.. someone must have added those hills since 😂
Lunch stop, it was bucketing down.
Mary Lynn birthday.

Old and newer houses.

Yesterday I had a rest day in Pamplona. Although I still walked about 10ks around the city. Lots of narrow streets and easy to get lost (I didn’t) I managed to find a post office and a Orange (mobile) shop to do what I needed.

The weather wasn’t particularly great and my photos are a bit dark. 
They seem to be doing a lot of renovations on different buildings. Mind you the bull ring certainly is a dirty looking building.

Pamplona to Uterga 17:5kms

Rained most of the day.

This is the hostel I stayed at and I treated myself to a private room.. no snorers, heaven!

Lots of wind turbines on the hills.

 

Uterga to Maneru, 15ks

Such beautiful greenery today. Most of the walk was flat until the end of the day. Then it was all uphill for two hours.

Not quite the way I wanted to be. Slight slip coming down a hill yesterday. No walking for three days, so I’ve bussed ahead to Burgos for some r&r.

This is Catedral de Santa Maria one of the largest and oldest in Spain. Although quite spectacular the opulence is overwhelming!

 

Reliving my Camino 2019:

Tardajos to Hornillos, great walking day.
Walking with my new Irish mate Miriam.
Huge stork nests.
Colourful buildings.
Green fields.
Hornillos in the distance with lots of pilgrims on the path. 👣👣

Burgos is really a beautiful town.These trees are called Plane trees, they prune them right back Ready for an amazing coverage of leaves.The Carousel was made in 1900.
