Hard fact: - The stage has a climb in altitude of 100m from start to finish. But on the way is a little peak of 350m. - Another nice, cool and cloudy day. Warm and sunny days may be beautiful but they also drain the energy. - A lot of urban walking, both out of Logrono and along the freeway. But it also has it's beautiful parts along a lake and the increasing number of wine fields. - Our guidebook showed a bus icon next to Ventosa, but alas, the bus can only be taken back towards Logrono, not forwards. Would have been nice to know. - Our Logrono Albergue: 'Check in Rioja' was ok, clean and nice but, had a dead feel to it. Run by a man, who missed the female and welcoming touch an Albergue needs.
Soft fact: - Samantha's knee is still in constant pain, but it seems to have stabalized. Hopefully decreasing soon. - She walked 21 out of 31 Km's today.
