Day2!! My day started so well ..6am send my last blog to yourselves. Left the monastery looked at the sign on the street for Santiago & thought u mad crazy Irish lady. But not deterred I set off “into the West” unlike the previous day when it was spent in the company of a young French gent Damon I favoured solitude so with a promise to meet further on I dropped back to a viewing pace. The camino rambled through picturesque forests with a snow like wonderland covering the ground … Must pick the brains of the GROW team on that one. Too early reaching Larasonna ( home of the recommended albergue) I made of in the direction of Pamplona .. not i mite add with the intention of going the full 50km but stopping of somewhere. But many many km & a few wooly directions from locals I got well and truly lost! Not a yellow arrow in sight & no matter how far & how long I walked I was always told 10 km to Pamplona. Having now lost the will to live & blisters forming at speed on both feet a tree at the river was looking very promising ๐Ÿ™‚ but somehow the prospect of being ant food kept me going. 1st albergue .. Full! But the sweet german lady took pity on the Irish eejit. Telling me the last couple to do 50 km in scorching heat ended up in hospital as she gave me an orange drink for medicinal purpose and directed me to the municipal albergue another km away!!! I didnt dare tell her id probably done more like 60 as i added a few lost ones to the norm!! ๐Ÿ™‚ then again she probably would have got the ambulance for me, but not for dehydration or sunstroke? but for my madness!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ what did I think of Pamplona? Couldn’t tell u! I saw a shower a bottom bunk & CRASHED!! ๐Ÿ™‚ xxx but I’m sure it was lovely lol!
