Logrono To Najera

Day Twenty Five. 35.1 K., 21.8 Miles (my pedometer).

Written on May 24, 2014.

Leaving the City of Logrono is an adventure in itself. The first scene worthy of a photo is a painting of sellos, (stamps), on the body of a man on an entire side of a building.

Sellos needed to obtain a Compostela in Santiago.

On the way to Najera I saw a Pilgrim walking the opposite way. I asked him if he had already been to Santiago. He spoke Italian and named off several places he had been. I believe that he was telling me that he had started walking from Rome.

A Santiago Pilgrim.

A poster for an upcoming circus.

Angel was waiting for us after our 20+ mile walking day.

When Vern and I arrived in Najera it is safe to say that we were, what can be referred to as, a “hot mess”.

We had walked many kilometers on rocks. Just before Najera I had had enough of the rocks and just started walking faster than I knew I could. I was so anxious to be off the rocks that I had acquired a new pace.

Thanks Angel for taking care of us when we finally got to the Albergue. At one point Angel helped pick me up from the floor when I tried to open the door in my sleeping bag. Angel and her friend, Sonja, arrived in Najera hours before we did.
