First three days on the Camino

Day 3 and in Pamplona. The day before I started was rainy and and overnight a lot of rain. Fortunately that stopped by morning. However, up in the mountains it had snowed which made for a beautiful walk. It was cold so I kept walking and arrived at Roncesvalles in just I under 6:30hrs. A nice big modern hostel runby the Dutch st Jacobs society.

Weather has improved and getting warmer. Three great days of walking.

Met some Dutch folks. Yesterday had a nice afternoon with them, a Swede, an entertaining Danish couple, and a bartender who did more drinking than the guests. Very amusing.

So far so good. No blisters. Nice people. Today was short at about 17km. Tomorrow will be about 25km again. Using my Fitbit-doing around 38000 steps per day. Will be over a million by the end of the trip. Off to bed now. Below some pics from the last few days.

  1. …the gumball machine (is that what it is) on the historic village street…just a tiny bit incongruous…

  2. Beautiful scenery, Inge, including the snow – and you! Is that a Canadian flag hanging in the pub? Thanks for letting me travel with you.


  3. Thanks for sharing. I have only met you once on one practice walk in Langley. Your pictures are very motivating, so beautiful. Buen Camino!

  4. I see that walking sticks are standard equipment. The elements look somewhat challenging but I’m happy you are having a good time and not too tired to do some blogging. Victoria has the usual Spring weather – mostly sunny.

    Great experience


  5. Wow,snow! The route looks so beautiful,thanks for the lovely photos.
    Rainy in Vancouver today,but sun on the way.

  6. Your photos are beautiful and bring back such great memories. I am so happy for you!

    But that snow on the top of the pass… Yikes! Glad you made it through okay with no problems.

    ¡Buen Camino!
