Camino Day3 – Chris

Well, I managed to quite literally, ´hobble´to Pamplona, and am staying at the ´Jesus e Maria´albergue (7 euro)… bed #5 if you´re looking for me sweetie…

I am really enjoying the journey… walking for the most part in solitude, but chatting to people occasionally along the way, but at the moment, my feet feel like hamburger… blistered and bruised like they´ve never been before… my hiking boots are toast… (hmmmm… hamburger and toast would taste good right now…)  🙂

I tried everything today… changing socks, changing into my hiking sandles… nothing would give me much relief, until I put on the thickest pair of hiking socks, which make everything feel really tight, but they were the lesser of all evils.

Stores here will re-open at 5pm, and I´m going to go looking for a new pair of hiking shoes, and maybe some sort of medical rub…

Pamplona looks like a place I might just stay in for a day… a good place to explore and recuperate a bit… otherwise, I´m not sure if my feet would carry me down the road much further!

Until next time,

    Make sure they’re not holding the running of the bulls Chris! You may not outrun them in your condition! 🙂

    Buon Camino

      I would so be easy prey… in fact, and this is not a joke… a vulcher was circling me yesterday! The running of the bulls happens in July… so I think I´m safe!
