Over the hills…

We retraced our steps, spent a night in Pamplona before driving back over the Pyrenees and finding a small hotel in the seaside town of Cap Breton.

Back in France again and we just had dinner beside the sea, and now I’m looking at a photo with the moutains in the background… and I’m thinking to myself some where over those hills are a few folks walking and I miss them an awful lot.

Stay safe pilgrims and say a prayer for me in Santiago.

No Room at the Inn?

Last night we stayed in the fabulous Roncesvalles monastery albergue.   This place must house 300 pilgrims…maybe more like 400.   They have a laundry room where for 2.70 euros they do all your washing and deliver it still warm to your bed.  There is a huge catering style kitchen and a bank of self service machines with ready meals and snacks and drinks.   There is a rather plush wifi room but sadly wifi yesterday was on the blink.  And you have little cubicles of 2 or 4 with very comfy beds and super bathrooms.   It is a 5 star albergue!
