Counting the days....again

As most of you will recognise before leaving....I'm getting more restless every day from now on!
It's only three weeks before I'll leave to do the Camino del Norte together with my wife Hanneke. After our first Camino in 2005 (CF) we decided to take the Route Norte starting at the bridge Irun-Hendaya.
First flying to Valladolid at May 10th , train to Irun and we go....On the Road Again !

I will try to report here some "usefull' information as well as pictures..... as the forum-section here of Camino del Norte is not too crowded with messages! :mrgreen:

Hi there Paulus,

Thanks for helping out. Yes, it would be nice to get some updates and useful info on el camino del norte. As you say, there is not too much info on this route in this forum yet.

Buen Camino,
if you want to include the Pont St Jacques, you're better stopping on the train to Hendaye and then walking back over the border to Irun. It's only a short distance from Hendaye station to the border.

Thanks for the tip! I already thought about that to avoid that I'll have to walk back to the bridge in the morning.
I will certainly want to walk the bridge from one side to the other! Maybe I'll post nice picture(s) of the bridge!

It's always nice to get some nice reply's on a message........!

Paul (who is not taking his saxophone with him on the road....)
