Writing from St Jean Pied de Port, listening to early morning noises as others prepare to head off. Kerry & I have given ourselves a few days to recover from the flights from Oz and le décalage horaire, no rush to set off and a chance to explore this lovely town and nearby countryside. My Camino experience started from the moment we arrived in Lyon, continued when we arrived at Biarritz and were helped by a fellow pilgrim (merci Pierre!) and just keeps flowing. Le repas last night here at la Vita e Bella was warm, jolly, joyful, multilingual and enlightening- and we have met nothing but kindness and support from everyone right from the beginning. We start walking on Saturday!
