Estella to Los Arcos
- Sunday, 22 March 2015
Had a really good walk today, the first two thirds alone, the rest with a Spanish pilgrim from San Sebastian with whom I spend quite a bit of time, and a Spanish girl from the Basque capital Vitoria Gasteiz.
After climbing out of Estella past the wine fountain (yes, really!) the path splits in two, giving the pilgrim a choice, a longer, but easy and quicker path or a shorter, more demanding path through a forest on Montejurra. I chose the latter.
The path passes through a small forest and through the small village of Luquin where I stopped for coffee, milk and a thick delicious slice of mushroom an pimento tortilla. (Mmm tortilla (Homer Simpson gurggling sound here)).
A couple of km after the two routes are reunited I joined up with with my Spanish camino friend and we arrived in Los Arcos at around 12:30.
Lunch consisted of chickpeas with tripe and paella followed by a well earned siesta!
