It was a beautiful sunny day but the route over the Pyrenees was closed due to snow so everyone had to take the “low” route via Valcarlos. The sights included lots of sheep, cows, horses, stunning rolling green hills… it was such a beautiful atmosphere, everyone so friendly, everyone saying “Buen Camino.”
I met Hans from South Africa and Liz from Australia and we walked together. We all checked into an albergue with 120 beds for only €6 and had a delicious pilgrim’s dinner of soup, whole trout, fries and crème caramel, with unlimited red wine, for only €10. It was an awesome first day.
