Days 6& 7 on the Camino

One of the discussions  we have while walking is, would we do it again. When the the joints are aching and the feet are sore we answer in the negative but when reflecting in calmer moments we realise the achievements we have made.

I would still love to walk the whole Camino from France but have come to the conclusion that I would do it without a 14 kg backpack. 

We went from Villamajor to Torres del Rio. The walk was uneventful. We passed many vines and olive groves. The albergue was fancy but not good for the independent pilgrim. No kitchen or communal facilities.  From Torres del Rio we went into Logrono. There were some steep climbs and steep descents. The descents are tougher on  the knees than the ascents. 

We ended our walk at Logrono and took the bus back to Pamplona. 120 kms of walking was undone in a two hour bus trip.

It was great to meet some fantastic people and to pray intently for certain  people and circumstances.

We are back in our tent and looking forward to more of Spain and Portugal.

  1. Now you get the feel of what it is like for students who go on Pre-Hike and Expo. After the first day of Pre-Hike my muscles ached so much that I was sure I was going to crumple down into the ground. I do agree with you on the downhill theory. Everyone thinks it’s so much easier down hill, but believe downhill is the one that’s going to give you the blisters and sore knees.

  2. *me (believe me)

  3. It seems to be mostly farmers across the country there. Is there any industry?
