As John Wayne would say “Ok Pilgrims, saddle up,” our journey has begun. This was a short get with the program day, that began in France and ended in Spain, where we are sharing a dormitory with a young couple from Amsterdam. Most of today was on quiet country farm roads, but last few miles a bit scary along a busy highway. We walked a short distance with a British couple, the woman was a doctor, but they had their luggage shipped ahead each day, so weren’t carrying packs; ended the day walking with a single lady from Vancouver. Tomorrow will be 11 miles most of which will be steep uphill, ending in small village of Burguete, popularized by Hemingway. ” The longest journey begins with that first step,” today was the first step, we are on our way. Buen camino!
