Distances between points on the Camino

I walked the Camino Frances in April/May 2003 from St Jean PdP to Santiago. At St Jean I was advised not to cross the Pyrenees because there was too much snow. I later heard that someone who ignored this advice found the scenery stunning, since there was hardly anyone else and the snow was beautiful and untrampled and the skies were blue. I was quite jealous until I heard about somebody else who had died of hypothermia, but some other time completely.
Anyway, that is why I walked mainly along the road from St Jean to Roncesvalles, but taking the short cuts maked with the yellow arrows whenever I saw them.
What I would really like to know is, what is the distance that I walked on that first day? The only guides I have read give the distance over the Pyrenees via Honto.
Thanks
 
Ideal sleeping bag liner whether we want to add a thermal plus to our bag, or if we want to use it alone to sleep in shelters or hostels. Thanks to its mummy shape, it adapts perfectly to our body.

we took the road unless there was a trail marked through the woods, and the bristish CSJ guide book lists that as about 25K. it felt about right.
