The beginning 

I got a fabulous fast train down south today to Bayonne and then changed trains and headed into St Jean Pied de Port.  Very old town at the bottle of the Pyrenees.  Big climb tomorrow and there has been lots of  rain so will be lots of mud as I make my way over the mountains.  I will be singing the hills are alive with the sound of music.  A few of you reading this will understand.   

Have my credential (passport) for my pilgrimage and just done a huge walk around the town.  Went to the bishops prison and walked the ramparts.  

Just had a beautiful dinner and lots of rose in a lovely restaurant over the river.  I am loving the history and the age of everything.  Lots of world heritage listed places.  

So many different nationalities here.  Lots of Australians but lots more Spanish polish French South America german.  Just a plethora of nationalities.  

So here are a few photos of the day and the town.

  1. Love that you will be singing and the hills are alive with music. Slow and steady so you don’t slip. And the long walk starts…xo
