I’ve been training and organizing last minute details, here in Barcelona. I’ll head to France Saturday morning.
A 4 hour train will deposit me in Pamplona. I’ll transfer to a bus which will whisk me off to St. John Pied de Port, France 6pm-ish. (7-8 hours travel)
It’s my intention to spend Sunday in St. John enjoying the scenery, applying for my Pilgram Passport, (not a complicated process) and taking it easy prior to Monday, April 20. Monday, will be my 2ndofficial start date.
I have butterflies today. They remind me of the significance this historic pilgrimage will have on my life. I know the woman I am today will be left behind.
Enthusiastic anticipation is my constant companion this week. I feel prepared for the first step of the 780 km walk.
I’ll allow 40 days to complete. I have a sneaking suspicion I’ll find myself in locations where an extra 24-48 hours will be as beneficial to my journey, as the actual walking.
Thank you for WalkingWithMe, it gives me comfort knowing I’m not alone.
