LIVE ON TRAIL Camino Frances: Cirauqui – Estella

DISTANCE 13.9KM

Another short day for me, I am really enjoying this approach! Ideally I would have carried on as I finished early but its really hard finding places that accept dogs. The next dog friendly hostel is in Los Arcos so I will go there tomorrow. I am not going to push myself to do 35 km plus days.

So I left at a leisurely time of 8.30am and set out with the dog in tow ready for another day.

Lots of pretty pilgram signs to keep you on track.

It was a lush hot day and the trail takes you past lots of vineyards and asparagus plantations. You can definately feel the change in climate now, it feels more arid and dry conpared to the Basque Country. I had a few stops and chats with people and generally took my time. I am having a few problems with heat rashes and its quite painful so I decided just to take it easy and plod along – I had hardly anything to walk anyway.

He really is the happiest dog in the world!!!

I went through the town of Lorca- which was alot snaller than I had imagined. I then came to villatuerta to a bar that was serving lunch, so I stopped for a meal and a caña. I stayed at the bar for a couple of hours and had a few chats with my reletives, which was nice.

Tired boy ❤

So then I got to Estella and went straight to my dog friendly accomodation called Hostel Volante, really nice room for 46€. Its alot more expensive than I thought and I only think I will ne able to carry on untill my birthday next week. It seems with a dog it doubles the price of accomodation and also restricts your distances too. Definately something to consider if you do the Camino with your dog. Its worth every penny I say. I was going to camp, but the campsite is in the otherside of Estella which would have shortened my day even more plus there are storms on their way.

Stunning architecture in Estella , which means star in Euskara (The Basque language). Many consider Navarra as the Basque Country still.
