Human Washing Machines

chicks-day3aOur set off from Roncesvalles began in the early morning with collecting our wet washing from the line… This meant with the strategic placement of each item on the outside of our bags so they can dry on the walk – we need them to dry because that’s what we’re wearing at the end of the day!! Our new title Human Washing Machines. I pretty sure other pilgrims were impressed with our ingenuity and it will fast become popular on our walk ๐Ÿ™‚

chicks-day3bDay 2 – they say never as hard as the first… And that’s what we kept reminding ourselves as we climb hills in blistering Spanish heat – sounds harsh I know but the canopy of cool Forrest that met us at the tops of the peaks was what got us to keep going ๐Ÿ™‚ they’re right day 2 not as hard as the first and finishing just after 2pm in the little town of Zubiri boots off blisters popped and wine ordered it was a good day.

So what else can I tell you about today… Well we have lied to you! Yes, sorry we didn’t know either ๐Ÿ™ . After walking over 25km day 1, about 3k’s in on day 2 – we see our first big road sign with a big surprise and a few chuckles we read SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA 790. Yep that’s right we’ve already walked for a day and haven’t even begun to count down from 780km!! Oops we’re walking 815km now ๐Ÿ™‚

New friends have been made from Latvia, Ireland, Canada, New Mexico, and Igor a Basque man who came in very handy to have a Spanish translator for us ๐Ÿ™‚

Looking forward to day 3 – it starts flat with only a few steep hills in the middle starting early to beat the heat (really we want to get to the pub by 2pm for wine time, it worked well for us today) so it’s 9pm and we’re off to bed! Don’t judge us we’ve had a big day.

Miss you all! Until next time
Buen Camino!
