Seeking peregrino German/Croatian Darko (SJPDP Sept 21)

Hello, everyone!

I was wondering if anyone could put me in touch with someone who was walking from St. Jean to Roncesvalles on September 21 this year. That was the day it rained and rained! He's about 35, is German/Croatian, lives in Nuremberg, glasses, had a green rain jacket and yellow backpack cover. He started his Camino much earlier farther into France so already had lots of friends on the trail, so I'm hoping someone has his contact info. It was my first day on the Camino and I didn't realize how the trail worked with people coming and going at different paces and that I wouldn't see him again. I know everyone walks the Camino for their own reasons, some deeply personal and difficult, and I am no exception to that. So I was terrified my first day and pretty emotional. But this guy saved me from getting lost and then walked with me for 6 hours in the rain and very kindly talked to me the whole time and I am positive I wouldn't have gotten over the mountain without him. I never said thank you though, which was so stupid!!! I've been thinking about that regret ever since I got home, and for many many miles on the Camino...the need to say thank you is just not going away and is really bugging me. I'm sure lots of you have Camino angel stories? This is mine.

Attached are some pictures from that day, including one he took of me on my phone.

Fingers crossed someone can find him for me :)
