Camino de Santiago. Week 2

Not too many words, but would like to share some photos of the trip so far.

Grand Catedral at Pamplona, despite its finery and golden altarpieces, you can still find is a simple cross.

Sunrise, leaving wine country of Rioja.

Shoes, shoes and more shoes.  Choose your stink!  This is a little volunteer run albergue run completely and restored by volunteers around 15 years ago.  They have not only provided a place for us to sleep, but also dinner, and breakfast as well.  Donation is accepted if you can afford it, but you can also take money out from the donation box too.  It's great system, and fosters trust and love.  I hope to volunteer there when I am in Spain next.

Sunset at Atapuerca, site of some of the earliest human remains, and a UNESCO heritage site.  We sat at the hills over looking the peaceful lake, with great gusty wind against our faces.  You can see a wind farm poking tat the hill just over the horizon.  Such modernisation juxtaposed against such a historic site.  It was a special moment.

More to come, but lights out in 15 minutes!
