Day one: St. Jean-Pied-de-Port to Roncevaux 27.1 km with a climb from just over 200m to just over 1400m. It doesn’t matter how much you think you are prepared, to say it was a challenge was an understatement! We left just after 8 in the morning and I literally crawled into the auberge just after 4.
Day two: Roncevaux to Larrasoana 25 km with a descent from just under 1000m to 600m. Easy! We are now in a lovely bar sipping beer waiting for our pilgrims’ meal which will be three courses and some wine. Tomorrow…bull running at Pamlona.
