And about to set off for Jaca.

I started in Ooloron and spent three days climbing up to the somport pass only to come down the other side again.

The views are unbelieveable and I don´t think my photos will capture them properly.

It alternates between cold and rainy and very hot, neither of which are ideal but I´m coping ok. Only one blister so far in 60 k so that´s ok.

Gites de tapes are fantastic and cheaper than I expected but I´m almost looking forward to the crowded refugios.

I´ve met some intersting people ( many of whome seem to be going in the oposite direction).

Looking forwards to the rest of my camino

Well I've finally done it, I loaded most of my Camino pics onto a photo bucket account (still missing some of the later Santiago pictures but other than pretty).
amazing architecture, cute animals, Spanish countryside and sentimental landmarks behind the cut.

Yep that's right I finally got around to getting my pictures from Spain scanned.
I'm planning on adding them to my journal entries later on but in the meantime just for [livejournal.com profile] diomedian

Cleverly stolen from my mother.....this is her Camino packing list(with underwear references taken out!)

I've added a Y next to the stuff I've already got (I'm going to try mum's boots on again when she and dad come to visit in July as they fitted me quite well over summer so I don't want to buy anything before I've tried them on) and an N next to stuff I'm thinking about not taking.
I will repost this when I've got more stuff.
My packing list )
