    Pamplona - 1 day or 2 ?

    What happened to Forum member Alexwalker?

    I love your humor and determination. I now walk with a cane reminding me everyday that my randonnee days are over, so I am volunteering as a hospi this summer. It requires the same logistic skills as walking does and the option for the odd geriatric bus or train ride is there to share time on...

    Possible Itinerary

    PM me if you are interested in staying in gite near St. Emilion. I have friend with one that is about a 30 minute drive from town. You can access St. Emilion by train and take a short walk up to town also, but if you plan to see more than the shops and cellars there you will need a car.

    Please let's stop the love fest. While I am not able to walk anymore, I will continue my snarky post until I can no longer understand the next generation of "clueless" pilgrims. BTW, where is the airport in Saint Jean Pied de Port? You know one day there will be one for the privileged pilgims, huh!
