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!
What a surreal experience, leaving home, saying goodbye and knowing that I won’t be back for 7 weeks!
So we arrived… I learnt that I really really don’t like heights! Gerry reckons that travelling up a mountain with me was like travelling with a tourettes sufferer… But really… do the roads have to be so narrow!?
