TRANSPIRENAICA BY COMPRESSPORT 1st Day, Cap de Creus – La Jonquera


The most difficult thing of carrying this singular route out is to take the first step, and finally, I did it today. It was the first of which, in the end, will be thousands of them. My intention was to set off about 6 or 7 a.m., but due to logistical problems I left at 8:45. I took the last look to the Mediterranean Sea and done.

The first stretch went through the haunted lunar landscape of Cap de Creus, very enjoyable and entertaining, nothing to do with what I found afterwards. The first mistake came in El Port de la Selva, where GR 98 or 93 run into GR 11 and I almost reached Cadaques… Damn it, I wasted two hours there!! I had to return and take the GR 11 back again in Llanca. The stretch between Llanca and Espolla was terrible, really hot, and above all, lots of asphalt. I was quite overwhelmed and I walked most of the time, I had no motivation to run. Luckily, after leaving Espolla behind everything changed, and when I was the most tired, I enjoyed it the most.

I did the stretch between Espolla and La Jonquera among thunders and rainstorms, but as the goal was near, I have not complained that much. Now is time to recover, tomorrow I expect a very hard day.
