Ventosa the windy pueblo

Awakened early by the German sisters, I decided to get on with my day even though it was before 5. I packed up in Viana and started off to Navarette. The guidebook has me arriving in Logrono this afternoon. I stopped for a coffee on my way out of Logrono before 8. Moving along I arrived in Navarette at 10:30. Too early. So I continued on to Ventosa. This means I have walked 112.5 miles of the 500. Tomorrow will my day 7 and I will pass the 25 per cent mark. So Dios quiere.  Today’s was city and vineyard walking. Nice rolling countryside. Weather has been a blessing as have your comments. Your humble pilgrim

    German sisters? They probably wanted you out early….nice to know there are nice (not scary classroom types) nuns all over the world….

    I would counsel that you not start looking forward to completing the Camino in 28 days, which your present pace might have put that thought in your head….you should take a rest day in Burgos, or Leon, or any other pleasant location (I can think of multiple reasons why you should linger in La Rioja….there’s a great restaurant among other pleasures in Laguardia, for example)….and besides its not a race….take some time to smell the roses…..

    Life is not a sprint. Rather it is a marathon or in your case, an ultra-marathon. Keep in mind that expectation can be a dream killer. So let it go. Take your time. You’ll get there. Love ya Bro.

    I’m so glad Greg told us you have a blog about your adventure. I’m still in awe of you as much as when we were kids. Can’t wait to see what else is in store.

    I’m more intrigued by what the sisters did to awake you? Barked marching orders? Slammed pots together? Rang a bell? Or just started giggling? No matter — sounds like a great day. All the comments are true that if you find a town you enjoy, why not linger?
