Roncesvalles to Zubiri
- Wednesday, 18 March 2015
Up at 6 this morning, for an early start after a fairly poor nights sleep. Breakfast consisted of a piece of dry bread and coffee from a vending machine, something I rectified with fresh coffee and tortilla in the next village.
Initially I set out this morning with the Canadian from yesterday, a giant from Sweden, a free spirited from Cornwall and a lady from Barcelona. About half way between Roncesvalles and Zubiri I got chatting to somebody at the roadside and ended up walking the rest of the way alone. We are all in this together therefore many of the inhibitions that we suffer seem not to exist here on the Camino, making it really easy to make contact.
The walk took about six hours including the breakfast break and a second break just before I went my own way.
Tomorrow I should reach Pamplono where I plan on staying two nights to do a bit of sightseeing and soak up the atmosphere. Unfortunately rain is predicted for the next few days, so I won’t be soaking up much sunshine! Still, I mustn’t grumble. The weather has been really kind crossing the Pyrenees.
