just back

I'm just back from walking the first three sections - SJPdP to Pamplona. My husband and I could only stay away for five days (two traveling and three walking) but we intend doing more in September.

We left SJPdP at 11.00 and arrived in Roncesvalles at 17.45. The first few kms were hard but we had trained for this section and managed to complete it without any problems. We did meet a few pilgrims who were suffering and I hope the two that we spoke to managed to make it to Orrison at least.

I was very surprised to see so few pilgrims, in fact we spent most of the three days alone but in Zubiri the hostal owner said that many pilgrims preferred to avoid the holy year due to the fact that it could be crowded.

I hope the pilgrims we had 'cena' with in the hostal Posada in Roncesvalles on 18th May are all well and continuing their 'camino' and 'buen camino' to all those starting out at this time.

Marianne,
How did you train for SJPP to Roncesvalles?.
Thank you.
