To climb a mountain you must take one step at a time..... and that,s what i will be doing (if i can get past this french keyboard!!!)
I am here at the start of my adventure in St Jean de Pied de Port at the foothills of the Pyrenees. Its a beautiful little village crowded at the moment with many tourists as well as pilgrims. I have already met 2 ladies from UK and another from South Africa with whom I shared the train trip from Biarritz to here.
I have my pilgrim pass, my scallop, maps and am ready to go; Bien Camino!
Storms are predicted for our climb tomorrrow but the following day is said to be a perfect day for seeing forever from the top of the mountains.
Bonsoir from SJPdP.

Storms aplenty!
Obviously Sydney weather has been following Spanish conditions and decided to join in by sending us sympathetic gale force winds to salute your efforts! One foot after another!!
