Today has been the easiest day yet – only 14-15 miles, though it’s been tiring in its own way. Though there wasn’t a ton of elevation gain, the warm sun zapped me of most of my energy. I still enjoyed the day though.
We started our day early so that we could make it to Pamplona in decent time. It was the perfect morning for walking. The trail started off following a river and farm fields. Got to see some really cute baby horses that weren’t shy at all. Then we headed through a less exciting, industrial section outside Pamplona.
Though Pamplona was not the final destination, we did spend a couple hours exploring the city. Walking in some of the footsteps of Hemingway. I even stood next to him in one of his favorite watering holes.
I found a geocache outside the arena the bulls run into. After a much needed slice of pizza and a beer, we got on our way to Cizur Menor.
The walk to Cizur Menor was hot, so reaching the albergue was an exciting moment of the day. After day 3 my body is tired, but still going strong. No blisters to report. Hopefully that continues!
Wifi isn’t so great here, so I’m using a desktop computer provided by the albergue to write this. The town has a meat place and a vegetarian place for dinner options according to the host of the albergue, so I’m going to opt for the meat place for dinner tonight. Wish me luck!

That baby looks a bit like Lily did at that age! Appaloosas in Spain, cool!
Hope you are babying those feet at night! It’s so gorgeous -looks exactly as I would imagine it.
Your pictures are amazing, but I would expect nothing less. 😉 Your updates have become part of my life now, and your doing a fantastic job at the commentary.
“Few people know how to take a walk. The qualifications are endurance, plain clothes, old shoes, an eye for nature, good humor, vast curiosity, good speech, good silence and nothing too much….”
