Made It


  1. The Spanish don’t eat a big breakfast Rob as they tend to ‘snack’ through the morning on things like churros dipped in chocolate. You do however get a fried breakfast in paradors and tourist hotels. Looks like the warmer weather has already reached you – sunburn is a problem on the bike too.

    • As I have discovered…

      But I might just get a fried breakfast on Sunday in Santo Domingo 🙂

      Sadly a piece of toast does not provide enough fuel for walking. At least not for me.

      So I carry small bags of nuts and raisens to snack on.

      The last couple of days I’ve downed a sports drink mid walk. Gives me a great boost.

  2. I like the En Route to Navaretta video. Looks fancy.

    • Really cool old village. Had some great pintxos and Rioja in good company.

  3. It seems like you have really relaxed into your journey now. Buen camino!

    • Hi Clare. Yes. I think it takes a week to find your ‘rhythm’ and cope with the physical effort.

      Certainly more relaxed about it all know. Though the walking is never ‘easy’. You just get used to it.

  4. Yes, good idea Rob to carry small packs of high energy foodstuffs, even a Mars Bar works wonders. I find Red Bull energy drink very effective if I’m tired on a bike ride.

  5. Gents, you could have your breakfast anywhere and in any Bar and any time. Just make sure the bar you stopping has more than one atendent,, that because if the guy is alone can not go to the kitchen for 10 minutes to prepare your breakfast.. Ask for as much as fried eggs and beacon, Spanish oo french omelet. Just ask for it . You should try Mediterranean breakfast too. Be patient if they can not speak English or Copa with accent or way of saying trust me if you do not scare them they will do their best to understand them
