I walked from Ventosa this morning into Najera. The distance was 10 kms/6.2 miles.
In Najera I got a taxi to take me the 30 kms/18.6 miles to San Millan. Naturally when I arrived the Monastery was closed for siesta.
I had lunch, another bocadillo, this time it was lomo (pork loin fried), queso (cheese) and pimentos with a cup of cafe con leche. Yummy!
I then walked in the village (in the absolute opposite direction) of my casa rurale. When I came to the end of the village, I realized I should be going in the other direction.
By the time I got to the casa rurale, checked in and tidied up a bit, it was time to walk back to the Monastery – siesta was over.
I toured Yuso Monastery and then back to the casa. All in all today I hiked 20 kms/12 miles.
There was a wonderful jetted bathtub in my room. I indulged!
