    I am enjoying your blog very much; I hope to begin the Primitivo in about two and a half weeks. I am sorry that you have been in so much pain, but I am glad that you were able to have a Plan B, Plan C…. There should be no reason to regret taking a bus or taxi, sending a backpack ahead, shortening distances between stages, or any other means with which you achieve your goal of reaching Santiago. I walked from Pamplona to Estella a few days ago, so I know how fierce the heat is, and can sympathize. Again, thanks so much for such a thoughtful blog.

      Thanks! We plan to do the Primitivo again and next time we will take a few more days to cut down on those long walks. Now that I know that I have foot issues 🙂 Not something I’d ever experience before on any long distance hike. Sucks getting older 🙂

    Oh, Irene, I’m with you about walking in the rain vs. the heat. I’m enjoying your posts and what personal observations you are sharing. Do you happen to have contact info for the Albergue Boente? I’m using your info for the guide I’m creating for self. Thanks for everything. Lovely picture. Especially sweet is the one with the little water feature and St. James.

  3. Hi, I love your blog! I found this post very inspiring. The Camino is a very unique experience, I’d say it was a journey inside myself even more than a geographic trip 🙂 That’s why I enjoy reading other pilgrims experiences and I always find some pallarelisms in what they say. And that’s just amazing!

    So, thank you for sharing this kind of posts with us!
