Traveling Nancy

Traveling around the world as far as I can go.

Made it to Viskarret


I already lost my clip-on sun glasses in Barcelona. I hadn’t even worn them. I think they dropped out at the Orange Store when I was checking my internet connections. Oh well. I will try to buy sun glasses in St Jean tomorrow.

I took the train to Pamplona where I was met by Istvan. Two other women and I, Anna from the U.S. And Emma from Australia were also with in the car. We drove to Viskarret to stay at Corazon Puno which is wonderful. It is right on the Camino.

Corazon Puro is a great pension.
My room

Corazon Puro had great rooms.
Istvan and Barbara, the owners are so warm and friendly.
We met three other women here. Ruth is from the U.s. and Jenni and Julia (mother and daughter) are from South Africa. They started a couple of days ago from St Jean and will be going on from here.
We had wonderful conversations both before, during, and after our delicious dinner.

We had a great dinner at Corazon Puro.

I loved my first Camino dinner.

We ate great food.

This was my first Camino dinner.

Tomorrow Istvan will drive Anna, Emma, and me to St. Jean. They will start walking tomorrow and I wish I was going with them because Anna says it is going to get colder with possible rain by Wednesday or Thursday. But my reservations are set so I will just see what my Camino brings.

I should be back here at Corazon Puno by Friday.

Traveling has been a passion of Nancy Panitch's life and she loves seeing how people in other cultures live. Her travels have taken her to many places within the United States, Asia, Europe, South America, and Africa. Being around people inspires her and she has much gratitude for the kindred Souls that are joining together with her in body, mind, and heart. She moved from Chicago to Portland, Oregon in 1982. It was one of the best decisions of her life. While in Portland she stays very, VERY busy. She volunteers (Inter-Religious Action Network, Human Rights Council, & ushering for various theaters); attends a Unitarian Universalist church; goes hiking with groups (Cascade Prime Timers & Trails Club of Oregon) and also with individual friends. Book groups, movie group, and bridge groups occupy her time as well. Her quiet activities include yoga, knitting, Sudoku, and reading. She enjoys all of these activities, but making time to see her wonderful 4 grandchildren takes priority over it all. She is happy to share this blog and hopes to encourage others to travel.

    Hi Nancy,

    My friend Laura Cavazos Murphy is planning a Camino for next year, and I told her about your blog and she asked if she could read it. So, I sent her the link, so if you see her request, know she is a friend of mine.

    Blessings for your journey, my friend!!


  4. I hope that you are having lots of fun on your trip!


  5. I love adventure stories! Yours is wonderful and I look forward to updates. You enjoy every moment and it shows through in your updates. The world is your palette……
