Lazy days

I’ve just realised that trying to write an even vaguely interesting blog post after walking the best part of 14 miles a day is going to be a bit of a challenge (as anyone who has bothered to read this far already will probably wholeheartedly agree with).

So I’ve decided on lazy days I’m just going to post a picture or too that I like. Hope you do too.

But there is one story worth sharing…

These two photos will give you a pretty good idea of what the 22.5kwalk from Zarautz to Deba is like: gorgeous, but largely uphill.

And at the summit of the steepest climb, this is the sight that greets you:

Call me old-fashioned, but I would have thought that a plateau 500m above sea level and at least 10km from the nearest town would be playground enough for anyone. Clearly not.

But just as I was in danger of becoming insufferably pompous about how we molly-coddle kids today, I met these two…

A German Mum and her 13 year old daughter walking together. The whole way. All 825km of it. Just for the fun of it.

I think that’s the sort of thing that’s supposed to happen on The Camino.

Here’s a couple more pictures:
