Kindness high in the hills!

May 17, 2018

Kindness can be found in the strangest of places. High in the hills above San Sebastián some lovely person left seats for weary feet, water for dry mouths & a stamp for our pilgrims passport to say we’d been.

It was very welcome as the trek from the albergue to the end of San Sebastián promenade was 5km before the days walk began in earnest. At its end we were met with a scary signpost “funicular “!!!

Yes we were to get to the top of a very sheer hill but without the aid of a cable car. I should have known as 5km ago we descended 150 steps to get to San Sebastián beach front so now the ascent was in equal measure …. allbeit tougher 😉

So a seat & sip of kind water at the top we were sorted for the tough trek to Zarautz a place of Tony’s childhood

I say tough as it was 18miles of many many sharp short hills not to mention a 1500m cobbled road dating back before the 10th century…. our feet were busted by its end so the bare footed pilgrims of old have my sympathy. (Advice avoid if you can… stay on the road ….we wish we had 😂)

Elastoplast put to good use we reached Zarautz in time for Tony to relive his happy memories with a walk along the beach…… like we needed the exercise 😂😂😂

Tomorrow feet willing we head for Deba

See you there xx
