Long day to Puente La Reina (25kms) – after leaving Pomplona walked into fields of sunflowers (some with smiles carved onto their faces by passing walkers), then high climb and descent. Tired as didn’t sleep very well…lots of synchronised snoring going on around me last night !
With such an international bunch I have come across lots of different careers and lifestyle preferences, more than on the home front. For example, there was someone who started as a journalist, then became a fulltime protestant preacher and finally an administrator, converting to the Roman Catholic Church along the way. An eye opener if you come from a tight social group, where career and lifestyle options tend to be narrowly defined.
ps have yet to meet another Irish national ! Surely I am not the only Paddy on the Camino at the moment
