    Indeed but St. Jean Pied de Port is the beginning of the trail.

    I just laughed out loud! Thank you for that! A greenie is coughed up from the depths of a persons bronchial passages and lungs.There was a time that a person could be fined for this. Doing this in a public sitting area is very low class behaviour!

    Compact Camino Frances - how to choose which etapas to walk vs bus

    Find a quiet place to sit. I recall sitting at a lovely cafe for breakfast and someone had cut their toenails. Vomit. Another time I sat on a rock in the shade after a huge climb only to discover that someone had left "greenies" and my feet were in them. Puke! Buen Camino!

    This is the perfect solution. Getting to St. Jean France is part of the journey. Heading up over the Pyrenees, summiting and heading down into Spain is an important part of the experience. Rosemary

    The camino is boring landscapes, paved roads, traffic…

    I had a very intelligent elder make a comment that the significance of the pilgrimage is diminished because so many are doing it. Like it was nothing to walk across Northern Spain for 5 weeks with a heavy pack on your back. Hmmmmmmmm. The older I become the less enchanted I am with others...
