Today was quite a pleasant walk with only a few steep uphills, some slippery downhills and high humidity to spoil the ambience. Most of the walk was on country paths. However, the last five kilometres was through the mundane commercial outskirts of Pamplona. We are staying in the old town of Pamplona, within the old fortress walls. It is a beautiful city, with the buildings only being matched by the food.

We went to two tapas bars, including  Bar Gaucho which is well renowned. Even there, it was so cheap – a large beer, a wine and two large tapas cost only  €9. Got to love Spain. We  finished the day with very weary bodies, but no injuries or blisters. We have a rest day in Pamplona tomorrow to do laundry, buy a few supplies and see a few sights (only if they are in close shuffling proximity to the hotel).
