Camino del Norte
I am terribly excited and also scared to death. I am temporarily leaving my job and family to walk the Norte as far as I dare.
I am Spanish but will be crossing the border and going to Bayonne cause Gronze recommended it and I love adventure. Few pilgrims there, I'm afraid but in two days I will be in Irún and meet maybe some of you.
It's going to rain cats and dogs (chuzos de punta) and that makes the adventure more adventurous. Got last minute nerves and went today to decathlon to buy some rain pants.
So... That's it. I am doing this as a gift to myself. I feel indescribably free.
Glad to share this with you.
 
The one from Galicia (the round) and the one from Castilla & Leon. Individually numbered and made by the same people that make the ones you see on your walk.
I felt the same way my first time. I get serious travel anxiety everytime. And everytime I get there and get going it just washes away like magic. You’ll love it! I am starting from Biarritz airport on the 14 so will be behind you a few days! Feel free to reach out if you need!

Hi. We are currently at the Izar Bide Aterpetxea albergue in Ibiri after a hot climb out of Deba. It is well worth the stay - cooler and very well run, for those looking for accommodation. In San Sebastián we highly recommend staying at Pension Aia.

It just occurred to me to say: raining cats and dogs is one of the phrases beloved of some Spanish friends who came to stay with us while they attended language school. My version in Spanish has been 'a cantaros', but I like yours better!
