  • We walked the Sarria to Santiago section last year in May and loved it
    Going back to walk the first section St Jean to Pamplona in July
    I assume this section is much more difficult especially Day one
    Any tips?
    Are there many places to stay in Orisson?

    Only the one. Nice short-ish steep-ish starting day. Book early for Orisson. 3 months is not too early. Plan at least 3 half hour stops the next day. Suggest Virgins statue, coffee van, Roland's fountain. If it's dry go down thru the forest to Roncesvalles. If wet this path is slippery/dangerous, take the narrow road.
    Good travelling and Burn Camino.
    Use trekking poles and make SURE you gave good shoes with lots of room for your toes! If you have ANY problems with your shoes you will know about it when you get to Zubiri! The trail is up and down with lots of rocks. I have never seen so many blistered and bloody feet as at Zubiri, and even in the Army it wasn't that bad! So take care!
    May I suggest that you investigate the PackSafe range of passport wallets etc. Most of the good travel shops have them. I have a range of their gear and imho it is far superior to what I just saw on the forum. Just google packsafe (au) it should bring up a few links. Cheers
