I am driving to Saint Jean Pied de Port tomorrow to spend the night and start the pilgrimage of the Camino de Frances.
Bag all packed – check
Logistics and accommodation sorted – check
Dog stuff all packed and ready – check
So I’m feeling pretty organised, except one thing….
it’s looking to be pretty stormy with thunder and lightening forecast with heavy rain… I am in Gipuzkoa now and its raining cats and dogs with massive thunder and lightening storms!
SPAIN … WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO ME
Since I have been here the weather has not been quite what I expected for ‘Sunny Spain’. So I had the coldest winter and walked in the snow more than I have ever experienced. The dogs loved it-munching on snow and galloping in it. I loved it for a while too but soon after months of being cold the novelty wore off!!!
So back to the Camino, were off tomorrow but I am not going too Santiago. Infact I have only booked accomodation until muruzabal, which is 20k after Pamplona.
Fingers crossed for better weather than is forecast, I have a feeling I will be needing my waterproofs more than my Sunhat, which is ashame because I really want to get some sunny pics,but hey ho I am just thankful for the oppurtunities I have in this glorious country.
