Adios Camino del Baztan, Hola Pamplona

After 5 challenging days on the Baztan, we emerged from the mud to reach Pamplona today. It was fantastic (my perspective), but Damian may never forgive me for putting him through some little tortures along the way. He is threatening to write the alternative version of my evangelical Baztan notes :)

It's nice to be in Pamplona and we're looking forward to three uncomplicated days of walking before we head home on Saturday. Who knows, we might even meet some forum members.

hi NualaOC,
I would be most grateful of a brief report on your five days along the Baztan. High-lights and low-lights; challenges; tips and tricks for the novice punter; accommodation; ease of navigating.
Buen Camino

Hi Pat, I will do a report when we get home. It's a fantastic little Camino, with some real 'wow' moments. Good albergues too.

A few pics to give you a taster;

Gorgeous pics with beautiful light. The horses are so 'stocky'.
Lovely

Thanks everyone for the good wishes. The Camino Frances is a bit of a shock to the system after the Baztan. We're staying in Uterga tonight. That felt ridiculously easy, so I've escaped to the peace of Eunate to burn off some excess energy!

Thanks for sharing your onward journey with us Nuala, and for the pics. For those of us out here pondering quiet alternatives to the Frances, it's great to get first-hand and recent accounts.
So I hope the shock wears off and that you manage to find a trough to walk in, rather than the top of a wave...
Buen Camino to you both!
