Day 6 Puenta La Reina to Estella

Started walking at 7.30 am after a breakfast of croissants and very good coffee. A lot of steep hills again today with level walks through the soft green countryside – this is the Navarro wine-growing area so lots of grapevines and also olive groves – really beautiful – could easily live here. Continue to meet new pilgrims and also now old friends – there is an extraordinary companionship that I have never experienced before – it’s very moving.

Walked 18 miles and stayed in the Municipal Refugio – great fun. Enjoyed a paella supper with lots of red wine.
