Martha had problems with her boots and found it hard to sleep with other people in the room,
She also missed her grand children. Thy took the bus back to St. Jean Pied de Port and will drive back to Holland.
Today we had another 30 km. walk, but it was cloudy so good for walking.
The road today was along the freeway, so not so nice and no grapes or figs to pick. The temperature dropped down to 17 degrees so we needed extra blankets.
We found a nice auberge in Belorado, and met up with Vismante and Greta two wonderful young ladies from Lithuania who are longtime friends and doing the Camino together. Shared a nice dinner with them and a bottle of wine. There is a fiesta in town, Norbert went to have a look but I am resting up for tomorrow when we have quite a climb.
Hugs to all.
Norbert and Greti
Today's walk was longer than expected but very beautiful.
We left Belorado at 7.0 am. And the streets were still full of fiesta revellers most very drunk but all wished us Buen Camino and commented on my Canada flag. We wanted to walk to San Juan de Ortega which is over the Oca mountain at 1,100 meters, very rocky and steep.
When we arrived, the Auberge was full, so we walked to Ages, same thing. So on we went to
Atapuerco where we are now in a nice Auberge and with our friends Vismante and Greta from
Lithuania. Of the 20 some people here we know at least half, thy are from Holland, Germany, Lithuania, Brazil, lucky for us we can communicate with all. Tomorrow we will be in Burgos where we will take a Hotel for a good rest.
Hugs to all.
