Camino de Santiago – Day 3

Camino de Santiago – Day 3
Walked from: Larrasoaña
Walked to: Zariquiegui
Distance: 27.1km

I spent a great deal of time today in the Orange shop in Pamplona buying a new mobile phone. Two and a half sodding hours in fact, because after waiting to be served for half an hour, it took two hours to download the operating systems and my account (via some randomly assigned apple ‘cloud’) to the phone. WiFi is so slow wherever I go that it could be weeks before all my apps download… but hey, I’ve just started my gap year (don’t like to mention it 😉 ) so who cares if Linked In doesn’t work for a while…)

On the plus side, my enforced wait in Pamplona had me practically marching the next 6km up the hill to Cizur Menor – where a very amusing Italian fellow ‘pilgrim’ (Marco) bought me a beer in exchange for me reserving him a dorm bed in the next (lovely) sleepy village of Zariquiegui. Job done, he turned up several hours after me but very happy to have a bed after a long day. I loved my stay there – the people running the place were great, my fellow ‘pilgrims’ were lovely or interesting or both (and no one snored in the dorm room) and the food was delicious. Oh, and the views… well, that was today’s picture 🙂D6DFD46A-F8F0-4ADA-B3CF-B32B61137A50

I love to explore countries on foot or by bicycle. An English woman, I moved to the south of Spain in September 2020 and I have dreams of encouraging more people to discover this amazing country by walking its various Camino routes. To date, I've walked the French Camino from St Jean in France, the Portuguese Camino from Lisbon (interior route, not coastal) and the Camino Primitivo from Oviedo. I have also walked a fair few long distance trails in the UK, including all of the National Trails in England and Wales, and a couple of long walks in beautiful Scotland.
