2009-2019: More than I remember...
Yesterday: Decision day.

Fully vaccinated, incl. booster, and infection rates sinking everywhere, I told my better half that I will take a walk this spring, and received an OK (After 2 years of sitting off this pandemic, I suspect OK was easy to give..)

Today: Booking day.

Plane ticket booked: 130 Euros to Barcelona. Leaving Arctic Norway (Tromsø, with Norwegian airline) at 6.30, change of plane in Oslo, Arriving in barcelona 12.55; only 6 hours to cross Europe: Unbelievable!

That gives me 2.5 hours to get to Saints train station. Plenty of time.

Train ticket: 30 Euros. Leaving Saints at 15.30 for a 3h20m. nice train ride to Pamplona, arriving at 19.20. Scedules found on www.rome2rio.com. Taxi to a pre-booked hostel in Pamplona, and relaxing with some pinxtos & a glass of red.

PS: I am not pre-booking train tickets: This time of year, they will have seats. Also, I am 60+, so I can buy a Carta Dorada, (Gold card) for 6 Euros, which will give me a 25% discount on mostly all train travels in Spain or a full year.

Day 0: Travel day.

March 29, 6.30 AM

To be continued.

At that day I'll be on the Camino already, wich is a pity, because I will lose the oportunity to drive you from the airport to Sants Station and have a beer talking about your Camino:D
Anyway, I'm glad you're walking again!

Are you sure you don't want to take a short bus ride from Pamplona to SJPP and take a walk to Roncesvalles, @alexwalker ? Even without a backpack. It's so beautiful up there! You won't regret it. And you can stop in Borda which has so many great reviews and the owner is a chef! You would certainly admire great food surrounded by this beautiful nature 🐴🐮🐎🐄!

Gorgeous photos.
I'm pretty sure Alexwalker has walked this route... probably many times :)
He's been "around the block" a time or 20, and has been walking the Camino since 2009.
