As I wandered the Camino from Villatuerta to Villamayor de Mon Jardin, we stopped at the wine fountain, only to be beaten by ‘touragrinos’!!!
I saw wild irises, weird spiderweb things, spoke bad Spanish to two older Spanish men who were sitting outside enjoying their day, walked with a lovely lady from Mexico and spoke in broken English to a sweet girl from China. And then I shared a room with Camino friends that had us laughing loudly.
Physically shattered tonight. My Apple health app says I walked 21km and it refuses to tell me how many floors I’ve climbed- I think it has given up trying to calculate that statistic.
After a ‘rest day’ in Pamplona, I spent the morning trudging up a ‘slow, steady climb’, eventually to a small village called Zariquiegui where I’m spending the night (and where I met my own “Joost”).
It was a rest day from the Camino de Santiago today. A day to sleep in. A day to deal with odds and ends, like sorting out another walking pole and picking up snacks for the upcoming trek.
Many have wondered – and asked – what’s in my bag for my indefinite worldwide solo trek. I have to admit, it took me a while to work out what to pack and I continue to tweak it. I’ve learned a lot along the way.
