Arrived at London Heathrow from Canada this morning to snow and minus 4. I had a delayed flight onward to Bilbao where it was 17 and sunny at noon... Go figure that the Norte is notorious for cold wet spring and it probably has the best weather in Europe right now.

Arrived to Pamplona at 6pm in light drizzle and ten degrees, and walked from the bus station to Cizur Menor. I had emailed Camino legend Meribel Roncal a few weeks ago and she said her albergue would be open on March 1st. I arrived in the dusk to a locked gate,but a ring of the bell and there she was.

I've got the albergue to myself and as I write this the rain is pounding on the roof (something comforting about that). I ventured out to try and get something to eat, but the bars and restaurants we're either close or weren't serving yet (8pm). WiFi not working yet, but hot water is hot, sheets are clean, and heat is turned on.

Expecting some good mud heading toward Puente La Reina tomorrow.

Lucky man, to have managed to make the final flight to Bilbao today. So, this is a fine start to your Camino. I heard weather is due to improve in Navarra. Enjoy, and buen camino.

Hi. I’m very grateful for your post. I will be starting my Camino from SJPdP on 18 March and was a little concerned after seeing those weather reports on UK and Europe. I don’t mind the rain but have a natural aversion to walking in snow. All the best for your journey.

I’m a Canadian from Ottawa in El Norte (just finished day 2 now in Zarautz) I’ve been blessed so far weather-wise. Buen Camino. I enjoyed Meribel stayed there w two others last year early March.
