A glimpse into the journal I kept for all 38 days on the Camino Frances, including up to 10 photos (not necessarily the best pictures but more that they represent that day in some particular way). Today is day 4 – April 24th. Zubiri to Pamplona

It was almost four hours later after leaving Zubiri that we (still walking with Robin) finally found a place open for breakfast. Had a Spanish tortilla, which is quickly becoming my favourite snack. …

Spring is turning out to be a fantastic time to walk – so verdant and wildflowers are everywhere. Yellow fields mixed with the rolling green hills in the distance never fail to make me smile. …

Walked through Trinidad de Arre at siesta time so there was absolutely no one around.  Siesta time seriously makes places into ghost towns! Next time I walk the Camino Frances, I will have to stop here for the day and be representing Trinidad [my birth country]. I wonder if they’d let me stay at the albergue for free 😉 …

My first impression of Pamplona is that I wish it were further along the Camino Frances to justify a rest day here. It has a lot to see – museums, historic streets and buildings, colourful facades everywhere. Tonight’s albergue is part of a 17th century Jesuit church. Pretty neat!
