At long last, we’re headed to our Camino “trail-head,” Saint Jean Pied de Port. While Paris was enjoyable, it’s definitely time to get down to the business of walking this damn trail!
Mikey & Frank onboard the TGV Paris-Bordeaux St. Jean.
Weather forecasts, however, are not very encouraging. Mostly, we have a 80-95% chance of rain through Sunday in the Pyrenees region. I guess we’ll have a chance to break in the Frog Toggs (rain-suits) right away. Kind of apprehensive about the up-and-over transit of the Pyrenees tomorrow as we will attempt to complete a 25.1km (15.6 mile) hike with a 1450m ascent – all in one day! This is totally doable, but may take a bit longer depending on trail conditions.
For now, we leave you with some highlights from our day and a half in Paris. Didn’t have too much time to explore, but clocked in about 30 miles just walking around the city. Buen Camino!
