LIVE from the Camino Tips for getting to Somport to start the Aragones

Camino(s) past & future
Walker from St Jean to Santiago in September "2017" YAY
We have made it YAY. From Australia we have had 2 plane flights, 3 train trips and 1 bus ride to get to Somport to start our walk. It really wasn’t that hard.
We flew into Paris (CDG). Waited a couple of hours and got the 4 hour TVG train to Bordeaux. The station is at the airport. Overnight in Bordeaux.
Next day to Pau by train. Another overnight to help get over the jet lag, it really is a beautiful city.
This morning we got the train to Bedous and then the bus to Somport, arriving at 11.30am. All done by the machine at the station, and in English.
Got our picture taken with the sign by nice Spanish Police, a caffe con leche, a sello, and we were off.
Now in Confrac Estacion after a couple of hours down the steep hill. The pack and poles feel like old friends. A good start to our second Camino.
You're on your way! Loved the Aragonés. Hope you will keep us posted if you are inclined to report back while walking. So many great things about this Camino, but the numbers are way down, so your presence will be greatly appreciated by the hospitaleros! Buen camino, Laurie

Frances (2015); Ch. d'Arles: Oloron Ste Marie to Aragones; Frances (2016); V.d.l.P.; Sanabres (2017)
When I walked the Aragones (2016) I flew into CDG, bus to Orly, flew to Pau, bus into town, train to Oloron Ste Marie, (all the same day) one overnight then walked from there. It was an easy three day walk up the Valee d'Aspe to Somport, if somewhat wet.
