I was going to buy some shorts to sleep in as there are mixed dormitories but decided against due to the extra weight. We bought some food for lunch as we didn't think the Orisson Albergue would have any. We were fully loaded up with rain gear and jackets and after some adjustments the pack felt better but still heavy.

Friday: the exploits of the previous days have really caught up with me and I am extremely tired. Up at 6 am, I was lucky that the morning was cloudy and I was able to cover much of the 60KM before it got unbearably hot. But really the mental, physical and spiritual tiredness have kicked in. I could hardly bear to face the next hill, and it was difficult to find a comfortable position on the bike. As I said, I was fortunate that the journey today was short and I had some ...
