We hear the alarm for 8am and get ready, shower and pack before meeting John and Jenny for breakfast at 9am. I look out the window and it's still pitch black, mornings are depressing in Spain. Lucky the sun doesn't go down until 7:30pm, so you don't lose too much of your day. We head down at 9am and see John and Jenny already tucking into some breakfast. We are finished within the hour, head up to our rooms to clean our teeth and grab our bags. We head off and check out by 10am. We ...
We wake up and get packing, shower, eat breakfast and organise ourselves to head off by 10am. Aaron ducks down to the car to put more money in the car parking meter and comes back up in a huff because we got a ticket. Apparently we parked in a 'residential' spot instead of a 'tourist' spot.

Into town for a strange supper purchase (see pic). Was going to eat with them but they seem to be eating now (6pm). I'd better get on or I'll find they've turned all the lights out and gone to bed. Think of me tomorrow but apparently the albergue I'll be staying in is the best on the trip. Much love to ...
... hotel- so basic that I can only fit half my body in the shower. You have to step out, turn around and step back in to do the other side.....but bliss nevertheless. Now at a little cafe with a burger. I'm not very hungry and 'burger' was the only thing I recognised. But they've got wifi. The weather is glorious, the country gorgeous, my equipment behaving itself and I had a lovely day. I wonder what tomorrow will bring. Much love to you all. ...
