Alburgue San Saturnino in Ventosa, a small village a few kilometres off the track, was a great place to stay. Can you believe at midday when we arrived there was a queue of 14 others which grew considerably by the time the doors opened at 1. I guess word of mouth is the best form of PR. It holds up to 40 people and I was in a room with 6 others- & no snorers so a good nights sleep was had by all until 6 am and the door opened to piped singing of monks which was actually ...

... was also hard going but we were rewarded with a cold drink and some delicious Pintxos. After our fill of beer, wine and Pintxos we had the return walk down tom Bakio to catch the bus back to Bilbao - this walk was mainly downhill and whilst still not a stroll in the park, it was much easier to cope with. Once back in Bilbao we had the chance to freshen up and then we met up with Dae-Jin Lee, a colleague of Danielle's who when he finished his postdoc with CSIRO landed ...
