Whatever it's called, welcome to my blog which is simply about journeys and life..... It shares stories, tales and thoughts, in prose, verse, photo and video. WALK ON RAMBLER

Day 3 Packing it to Zubiri( from www.stjames2stjames.blogspot.com)

Ernest hemmingway lived in this town just out of Roncevalles
Forward 1/11/2009 : I remember that I was so tired from this day after crossing the Pyranees that I posted this on the wrong blog...so here it stays

After the blessing at the Roncevalles Church the night before , we thought that this would be good for the 25km with the packs. The pilgrim office said there were many ups and downs and she was really right...probably more ups then downs really.
The country though was again beautiful despite the early cold.

We have met some interesting people.
There was an irishman in a full kilt. ¨"Bad for the midges" he said. " And you have some irish in you haven´t you?" to which I had to agree.
There are two Australians from Canberra walking with us or we are running into each day. They have been good company and it´s good to share some experiences with them and also share info
each day
We have made friends with a group of Canadian women. They re going to Logrono and some are having their bags carried which seems good to us.
Couple of policeman on motorbikes
Bike riders who seem to have trail bikes as it is really hard country
We struggled into Zabiri after what seemed an etrnity of down. Nice refugio and after a hot shower the world seemed very good again.
We have Pamplona in our sights
