Well the day is here. I am in St Jean Pied de Port after a few amazing days with the Antonisson’s in Recphen Holland. Both have done the Camino Frances and many others all over Europe, so I have been in good hands. Arriving in SJDPP I have mixed feelings of nervousness and excitement,. I arrived late so ordered a pizza for dinner so I can take half for my lunch as the stores are closed. I am now in a bar having a red wine trying to get the courage to go back to the albergue where I am sharing a 4 person room with 3 Italian men.. (and I am on the top bunk) Some may dream of this but not what I thought my first night on the Camino would be. Oh well, I had better get used to sharing with 20-30 people in one room.
OMG just about to leave bar and bartender came over to me and said a fellow peregrino who just left paid for my wine!! Now need sleep as tomorrow is a big day.
