Lourdes, Oct. 1st 2018



Staff member
Hi, In my memory, there are few pilgrims that begin in Lourdes. More than a few start in Le Puy and travel through Lourdes. Not that Lourdes isn't a good place to begin. I was last in Lourdes this May and spoke with a few pilgrims on Camino. None had started in town.

Not October...but soon...8/8/18 I plan to step out (or the next day if too weary from a long flight)...Lourdes is a wonderful place to be with the element of water all around. I have not been able to get in touch with the pilgrim hostel to make a booking and so I am staying with the Polish sisters. I am taking very little this time. I am trusting all will work out---Buen Camino
