Pamplona to Puente la Reina 23.5km
I started Camino De Santiago from Pamplona.
Encounter with Suzana made me feel so excite about walking this track. The track goes very close from her apartment, so it was not a problem to start. First, I went to the albergue to get the credential for the walk toward the bull fight stadium.
It is very easy to find the way, you just follow the yellow allow or shell sign. It leads you to the right track to next city and To Sandiago!
I was crossing the intersection to go out from the city and called from the old man. I was going to the wrong direction, so he kindly stop me to collect my track.
After leaving from the town, it was all flower field widely spread in front of our pilgrim’s view. It is a magical view I have never seen before.
I met Noel from Island, he is well tanned friendly old man, have been travelling all around the world by walking. As soon as we met, he remembered my name and introducing to other pilgrims.
It is strange and funny how people get so close and friendly on the way no matter where you are from, just because we are aiming to reach the same goal.
I had very great first walking day, met lovely Italian couple from Milano. So we walked together to Puenta la Reina. On the way, we met other you g pilgrims from Germany, Slovakia, Korea and Australia. We went to shopping and had dinner together. It was such a great dinner finishing up with German artistic fruit curving.
Only bad thing was that I could not sleep at all on the top of bank bed hearing people snoring from both side of my ear! Haha
