Hi everyone. I come to the Camino with a very heavy heart after fleeing my home due to the war in Israel. :( I didn’t know where else to go, and have found myself here, as I’ve walked the Camino a few times, so it’s a comfort for me.

I hoped to buy a backpack & warm coat today, but am realizing everything is closed. I arrive in SJPP in a few hours - does anyone know if anything is open or if any albergues have a donated/used pile of equipment I may be able to use to start walking tomorrow?

I’m hoping there will be something and am immensely grateful for any help/insight anyone can offer after such an unthinkable week. Peace to everyone.

Decathlon in Bayonne will be open today til 14:00, the pilgrim boutique in SJPDP will be open till 19:30 (but more expensive). You could ask at the pilgrims office in St.Jean as well, but i would guess the chances for donated equipment will be quite low at the starting point. Maybe better luck at Roncesvalles.

May the Camino be a blessing and a balm for the heart, @mfmarotto . Such heartbreaking times.

And I hope you find what you need!
