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'm a map addict. I nip out in my lunch break to go to the National Map Centre, just around the corner from where I work, to feed my habit. My fix normally costs £7.99 and comes in the form of an OS map, although I'm a big fan of Sustrans cycle maps, the Trailblazer walking guides and maps of the world too. And once I've got my new map, I start plotting - routes, adventures and an escape away from the office that I spend too much time in. Maps, quite simply, make the world a better and more exciting place.
