2014 Camino Francés

Day 8: Torres del Rio to Logroño

June 27, 2014

In the Basque Country, you are served ‘pintxos’. It is never written ‘pinchos’ and they are never called ‘tapas’. This is the case regardless of whether it is served ‘pinchado’ to a piece of bread with a cocktail stick or not.” –Damian Corrigan, Spain Travel Expert*

Route: Torres del Rio to Logroño
Date:  27 June 2014
Distance:  25 km (12.4 mi)
Accommodations:  Albergue Santiago Apóstol

Armanda’s still asleep back at Albergue Pata de la Oca and Yeni, Olalla, Ana, and Al, who got up this morning at 3AM for a night walk, are somewhere far ahead of me. I am at peace, ready to follow arrows…

Just follow the yellow arrows.
