My first check in! I have not found a computer until today, well except when I was killling time in France waiting for my backpack to arrive. It got lost in Chicago and followed me to Bayonne, 4 days later! Oh I was so tired of the clothes I was wearing that they got tossed when my pack finaly did arrive!
Sunday April 29 at 6:45 am I started out on El Camino from St Jean Peid de Port. Holy Crap! The first day is 30 kilometers, up the Pyreneese Mountains, it took me almost 8 hours, including a lunch break, to reach the town of Roncesvalles. I have no idea what to say except that I felt like I had been beaten with sticks, and wanted to lay down. Luckliy I feel in with a group of Irsih pilgims and they insisted I join them for beers since I did all the negotiating in Spanish. I ended up drunk and stumbling tired. I barely found the energy to put Zheng gu Shui on my legs before passing into a dead sleep!
Since then it has been days of everything and nothing I expected. The path is so
Killing time in Biarritz
I waited four days for my backpack so I had to do something!
beautiful and the colors are amazing. Everyone is so freindly and no matter where they come from or what languages they speak we all manage to communicate. Im in the town of Estella, almost to the Spanish state of Rioja (oh yeah! Good Wine!), but still in Navvarra.
My plans for Italy are not fully settled, but it is preety sure Im going to be in the Italian state of Molise for July and August. Im also thinking about going to Ireland on my way home to stop in and visit my Irish freinds in Dublin!
