We have 11 days to get from Irun to Burgos. I am just trying to build in a day of ease, but still allow half a day to explore Vitoria/Gasteiz. That's why using a bus at the start might be helpful. Perhaps I'll look into a bus from Astigarraga to Tolosa - on day 2
A very good idea, I think.
The commuter train, industries, towns, etc., are part of the adventure.
I love your attitude, @C clearly. Indeed.
But you definitely don't want to skip albergue in Beasain believe me!!!
No, definitely not! I agree completely.
Or maybe walk Hernani - Andoain. That's much better.
But not to miss the escalators! ;)

Oh...and...the recommendations for food, @C clearly:
In Tolosa: Amataberna
In Beasain: Blai

Once over the mountains the food on this camino is less inspiring (except Tartan in Miranda de Ebro), but up the valley from San Sebastian? It was wonderful.

Oh, and @peregrina2000, I have to admit I also thought the attitude of people in Haro towards visitors was a bit jaded. Maybe it's that we were not dressed to impress?;)
Back on the VdB in Miranda de Ebro, it felt better - I thought, anyway.

I'am not perfect, but I'm always myself!!!

Loved the synagogue pictures. I don’t mind seeing pictures of places before I walk there, so you will have to think of another way to torment me, K1. 😄
I forgot to mention one more thing in the past post when I mentioned 2016. Me crossing the Ebro in MdE, you walking Camino del Ebro, then we meet in Leon, La Robla and in the end in Tertulia in SdC. Well, after you cross the Ebro in MdE there's a Plaza de Espana (small and nice square) to the left and at the far end there is Bar La Tertulia :D

One more food recommendation — at the pensión in Zegama, the restaurant is very very good. We were there on the weekend, so we had to order a la carte and had a feast. Their weekly menú looked amazing. BTW, if you stay there, he will not take reservations on the phone, you have to go through booking. The young guy running the place was both chef and in charge of the pensión and was a bit harried. His mom and a bunch of her friends came out to eat the day we were there, from Vitoria I think, and she told me all about how he had worked so hard to get to this place. Clearly a proud mom.

Woo hoo!
I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
I'm still haunted by parts of this way, especially the first torrrntial day, the Tunel San Adrian, the walk up to Pancorbo, and the last day or so into Burgos.

And I will also walk in your footsteps on the Invierno afterwards 😳
Planning on walking the francés from Burgos to Ponferrada in between. I’ve so far always been lucky, always been very quiet for me.... Famous last words...
I’m a ‘chicken’ too btw, afraid of cows and wild dogs 😱 Were there any? I’ll have to be brave 😳
