so the day had come to get myself up this mountain. I have been dreading this day since the day my guide book arrived months ago.
It was almost a 10k climb and took about three hours. It wasn’t easy but I was really pleased with how well I managed. I think I have probably become a bitter fitter since my Camino began.
Right from the start of the day, the scenery and surrounds were magical. Many pilgrims took the bus today, being afraid of the climb and I found myself feeling sorry for them. After all the hard work they had done, and all the kilometres they had walked, to miss out on today just didn’t seem right.
