Day 2 – Roncesvalles to Pamplona (42km)


Today was very tough and myself and Odette were put through our paces in a serious way.

We began walking today at 06h50 in the rain which persisted for the majority of the day. We lunched at our halfway mark and soon discovered that the morning walk was a walk in the park compared to the afternoon. At times the sun showed it’s face but the weather was generally wet with very damp & muddy conditions.

The last 10km of our day took forever but through the torment we were enduring, Odette & myself were becoming closer in our relationship as we were encouraging each other to carry on.

One plans the route for the day but always forgets to factor the additional walk when entering a town searching for accommodation, that was an additional 3.5km.

We arrived in Pamplona at 19h00, exhausted, cold and sore but grateful for the day.

God bless
