Orreson to Burguete - 14Km

After a slow breakfast I was nearly the last out of the Gite, and the gradual climb up to the top of the pass, although it was great walking weather it was misty so I didn't take a lot of pictures. During the walk and later on at Burguete I met Tarmo, who was on his way to Sandiago.

It was a lovely walk, with a very quick descent, through trees which started off by being very bare and by the bottom of the descent they were covered in their spring leaves.... must be one of my top 5 walks this year.

Because of my little 'cheat' yesterday I was in Roncesvalles by lunch time. I had decided that sleeping in a room with 80 people did not appeal to me ....So I had booked to go on to a hostel (which is a Spanish bottom end of the range hotel) at Burguete 4Km further on.

Talking to Marina and Mien later they said it was fine and a good place. Clearly a bad decision on my part as the village and hostel were very quiet. (I am being charitable with my terminology) The evening was saved by Tarmo turning up and sharing a coffee with me before he walked on to the next village.

Good towels for sock drying though....
