    Has anyone started the Camino Nord from Biarritz to Saint-Jean-de-Luz instead of Bayonne?

    The Camino does NOT start in StJpdP - discuss

    Members will be aware that I am neither a contrarian nor a provocateur but that I do like, now and again, to ask questions a little beyond which is the best bar to discuss the best sleeping bag in. So, as I viewed a thread started by a new member who is flying into Madrid and probably training...

    Paris hotel for two nights?

    I'll be arriving in Paris in early May. As I've never been there before I'll spend two nights there before taking the train to SJPdP. I want to spend less than 100€/night, and would like to be fairly central with easy access to the train station.

    Is it practical to plan to travel CDG - SJPDP in one day?

    Our flight arrives CDG at 6 am and we plan to take taxi to Gare Montparnasse. Assuming we allow 3 hours for Customs & travel time, does that leave us enough time to get to Bayonne & transfer to SJPDP? We’re not traveling until early May and rail schedules don’t seem to be posted yet. Thanks
