On the Camino de Santiago, Day 2: Finding the perfect spot for a midday nap

Day 2: Orisson, France to Roncesvalle, Spain - 17.3 km - 7.75 hours

Trail napping has always been part of my solo hiking experience. It forces you to tune into the sounds around you. Today I dozed to the sounds of my fellow pilgrim's approaching footsteps and the rhythmic cadence of their hiking poles striking the earth, followed by voices celebrating the small victory of only 765 kilometers to go, said with a smile you can hear no matter what language is being spoken.

I followed this family for about 20 minutes uphill this morning. These two young girls shared a single hiking pole the entire time. "The spirit of the Camino"

These shoes look pretty good now. It will be interesting to see the difference in tread between now and when I complete the journey.

The Virgin of Orisson. A very special stop for many pilgrims on the Camino.

This sign made me smile. And the view, of course, is wonderful.

I was doing my end-of-the-day yoga at Roncesvalle. You always end in Shavasana, lying on your back, clearing your mind, letting your body rest and recover. Well I must have rested my hands on something bad!
