Once my well priced airticket was booked to St Jean Pied du Port is about two hours west of Lourdes if the train is on a straight line.
After arriving by train from Lourdes via Bayonne, i followed other Pilgrims / Perigrinos / Hikers about 700m to the L’Esprit du Chemin Refuge / Hostel. Once checked into the Refuge /Albergue /Hstel managed by Arno and Huberta, the founders and hospitaleros.
The frst stamps in my Credntial at the Pilgrims Office, immediately opposite.
Had a short stroll, back to the courtyard of he Refuge, then dinner and bed
Whilst i'm trying to recollect my thoughts on how to input facts and toughts.
