    @ROB STONE Stunnin it is but no creature was hurt in anyway (Stunned ..... ) when taking the photo. In fairness it is all about good timing and tiredness .... good timing in terms of weather, sunlight etc and tiredness as that section is soo steep .... rest was required.

    Let's run the Camino from SJPP to Santiago

    Here is some information I provided a pilgrim who wanted to run or walk the Camino at Speed to Finisterre .... typos included ..... Good Luck ..... An American woman ran the Camino in 8 days some years back, so 17 days should be a doddle!! I think she ran with a support team, namely her family...

    This photograph was taken in the Pyrennes. The statue is dedicated to the local Shepards who hold a Mass there at least once a year .... a very esposed but magical place on the French side on the Nepolian Route at 14KMs or so from SJPP at an elivation of 1,100m so above the snow line at 900m ..

    Paulo Coelho didn´t complete his Camino

    Maybe they should establish a Paulo Cuelho Camino, starting in SJPP, spending 5 days getting very lost in the Pyrennes .... etc. and then finishing at O'Ceberrio ... might help eleviate some of the congestion and bring more money into the Camino as he stayed in hotels ... ha ha Regardless he...

    Accommodation in St- Jean-Pied -de- Port

    Shane, Accomodation not likely to be an issue unless you expect to arrive very late at night after 23.00. As long as the Pilgrim office is open, they will sort you out. If not in a rush then spend a day there taking in a only French bit of the French Camino. If Orrisson is open then stay there...

    @jostony thank you very much. I found the flowers growing in a wooded area just off the Camino about 30KMs before Santiago. Looks like they were planted, possibly by a pilgrim ....

    Camino Frances in 3 weeks?

    - Fly to Stansted and then to Biarritz or San Sabastian. There is a bus to Bayonne from both places but aim for a late am or early pm bus from San Sabastian as the other times can be scarily expensive. - If you are fit, healthy and found the walking side of the Camino easy then a big hike when...
