15th Aug 2016.

We are making our way to St Jean Pied de Port to start the Camino.  The Eurosuntor2016 web page will be dormant until we return back to the motorhome, hopefully in late Sept/early Oct.  Buen Camino!!!!

Update…

………..So belatedly, picking up where we left off, we arrived in Santiago on the 28th September after 36 days on the road and over 800 km’s covered by foot.  We are both really pleased with our achievement as we walked every step, carried our rucksacks and never booked the pilgrim albergues ahead.  We met many great and interesting people on the way and to be honest I am going to struggle with words to describe the experience, so I am simply going to upload the photos which will hopefully prompt our memories when we look back at this blog in the future………..
