We commenced our day around 5.45 am by trying to sneak quietly out of our room without waking the 3 Irish youngsters who were staying a couple of days in Pamplona because the girl in the group has injured her foot. They came in quite late last night, but respectfully kept it quiet for us so the least we could do is repay the favour. Lisa got up with us, but headed off 1/2 an hour earlier as she was aiming further today given her tighter ...
We were on the trail by 7:30 joining a stream of pilgrims who all had the same idea as us. We met a couple, Karen and Steve, and hiked a way with them chatting. After a time, I discovered my water bladder leaked which ended the conversation as we had to stop to deal with it. Luckily it was warm enough already and a wet back wasn't bad.

This morning we set out at an early 6:25am, passed through the Camino arch in Obanos and walked 2 miles before stopping at Puerte la Reina for cafe con leche and croissants. These Camino breakfasts are muy bueno! After a very steep climb leaving Puerta la Reina, we reached the village of Maneru and stopped to remove shoes, massage feet and reward ourselves with a 10 minute rest. We then set out for the next village. We stopped to tend to a painful little ...
