Hi Santos,

Have a great time Santos! You will do good, don't worry...

I have been reading your posts from the beginning and know that you are now well prepared, now you just need to enjoy and don't worry so much.... well, a little bit of worrying is good, but not too much... :)

Buen Camino Santos

Buen Camino Santos.
You will be fine.
You will get to St Jean and find a nice warm albergue.
You will meet other nervous pilgrims and you will help each other.
When the locals say that it is safe to walk over to Roncesvalles you will start your "Groot Trek" (Great/large journey).
Go slowly the first few days. All the up and downs are like a roller-coaster until you get to Uterga. The roads are rocky, stoney, gravel pits and if it has been raining - lots of mud.
And remember:
“When you walk across the fields with your mind pure, then from all the stones and all growing things, and all animals, the sparks of their soul come out and cling to you and become a holy fire in you”.
(Ancient Hasidic Saying)
Big hug nervous, precious Gollum!

Buen Camino, Santos!

All your worries will start to dissipate once you begin your long anticipated and planned camino! You will be fine.

I'll follow you next month and I'm also getting nervous, but with anticipation!

Ultreia y suseia,

... me again, I know you are worried about the weather... I just saw the weather report on TVE (National TV) and they could report of a bit of rain the next few days in north east Spain. Nothing crazy, just a few showers.... but don't put your rain gear at the bottom of your pack :)

Buen camino,
