After the 5th stage, Ana returned to Ibiza. I carried on despite being alone and the walking difficulty. It was a bit scary because there are so few people walking, in fact I only met 4 groups, all Dutch. The last one was a group of 30 something Dutch guys having breakfast in the hotel.
Being the shy person that I am, I asked if they were walking and if I might tag along. Surprisingly they said yes, so off we went. The day was grueling, long, hot, with little shade, no villages, and steep terrain. It provided a humbling experience, one I do not want to repeat.
