Day 3, Espinal to Villava


View Deb's Camino de Santiago de Compostela on Deb Godley's travel map.

We walked more than 30 k today. Claudio and I started in the dark at 6:15 with two other Italians, but I they quickly pulled ahead and we walked more than 3 hrs before seeing another person.

After a couple of short breaks, we met up with Esther near Larrasoana. We were so happy to find each other again and we've made plans to see a bit of Pamplona tomorrow. Claudio hasn't decided if he will push on without us. He's torn between the fun we've had and his desire to get to Finesterre (an extra few days after Santiago) in the limited time he has.

I have to say that so far, each day has been better than the last. Today after the long walk (and the reason it was longer) we went to the swimming pool next to our albergue. We were talking about the pool for the last 2 hours of the walk. I'm glad it didn't disappoint.

They had both wet & dry saunas! It was fantastic. Esther and I rotated between the saunas, the jacuzzi and the lap pool for about two hours. Heaven! Also, the jacuzzi had two waterfalls with the water hard enough for it to feel like a massage for the neck and shoulders. So great - I am all warm and sleepy, but have to stay awake until 8 for dinner.

I wasn't able to get the headlamp to work this morning do I need to look into that.

Esther and I are going to share a washer/dryer and wash everything we can either tonight or tomorrow.

The walking today was tiring but we were completely rejuvenated by the pool and saunas, although I may be stiff when I get up from writing this.Bridge at Trinidad de Arre
