My partner and I missed that turn off too until a nice man turned us aroundI remember that turn well! It really did not look like one should go down a minor path next to the bank.... and I think the arrow may not have been easy (for me) to see. Needless to say, I walked maybe 1 k out of town on the main road with a nice Japanese pilgrim after which, we both turned around.
But sometimes, not finding the arrows leads to interesting places like this street market and this sculpture.Both times walking out of Burgos I failed to find the arrow, and even now I cannot remember where it is!! About a group of 12 people of us were leaving the city albergue (which is really good!) and we all missed it in the morning darkness. We marched on, talking and not noticing we were not on the path until some folks behind us called us back. The second time I looked for it and couldn't find it....a friend with me found it.
And how many of us are still scanning a week after finishing our camino? Was quite a shock to think for myself againIt's super obvious if you know to look for it. Those last seven words are important. Most pilgrims, this early into their Camino, haven't developed the habit of always having a piece of their mind scanning all around for yellow arrows.
Ha, I managed to get to the entrance to that tunnel and realised I was off track somehow, I think I added about an hour to my day getting back on track, mainly due to chatting to helpful peopleThe NVI highway Tunnel, if you survive the pot holes, takes you right to the Camino route.
