Start of the day
The advantage of being the first out of the hostel in the morning - a group of pilgrims to take your photo. Note how light my pack looks (no water inside it)

Yes the dreaded ones reared their heads today. Not too bad but I´ll need to keep on top of it to make sure I´m ok
Other than that, today was a walk of 27.4 Km, not counting the fact I had to turnaround and go back to Roncevalles because I forgot to fill my water bottle. Luckily I´d only gone a couple of hundred metres. I could blame the group of half a dozen pilgrims who had just returned from Santiago at six in the morning to take their photos under the famous ´Santiago 790Kms´sign with their completed compostella certificates. I could, but that would be a lie...
The last five Kms today were hot and I thought that I had missed the final turnoff. I was just thinking ´Sod it, I´ll just go to the next town, it can´t be far´when I saw the sign. Good thing too as the next town was 17Kms.
