CAMINO DEL NORTE DAYS 8-9

IT’S A LONG WAY FROM TIPPERARY TO SANTIAGO DAYS 120-21. Pobeña to Noja.

Gorgeous walk up around rocky coast. The beauty of Del Norte continues to awe. Even the cities are impressive as we walked up beach to the Cathedral and fortress of Castro Urdiales.

Going over the mountains I stopped for beautiful view and German sisters arrived so we walked together having nice snacks at Islares before going on together as they said there was an Albergue at Guernezda.

There was but bar said we had to go back 2k. We went on 11K further over the mountain trail. Beautiful and then descended into Liento where we met Ukrainian couple and got 5 last beds with Elfe having to sleep on floor.

Rosa, Elfe, and Rosalinda. Rosa and Rosalinda are twins from the same egg who seem unusually connected.

Sunrise after Liento

Slept until 6:45 and left at 7:25 just behind sisters catching them pretty quickly as we enjoyed very nice walk in mountains and beautiful sunrise before long walk along beach after Laredo to ferry and then breakfast in Santoña.

Another long walk but an interesting climb along shore and then down to beach and beach walk to Noja and Noja Adventura Albergue.
