Apr 15, 2015 - Adios Benidorm

Hi Everyone The campsite had been slowly emptying as many Brits, Dutch and Swedish head home after wintering in Benidorm, then suddenly the camp was full again as Spanish families arrived with the caravans, awnings and tents to enjoy the Easter holidays. The sound of children playing football, riding their bikes around the camp and having fun making mud pies brought the camp to life. Holy Week (Easter) is very important to the Spanish and Good Friday is the most holy of the days and is marked by the ‘Procession of the Holy Burial’. We found...

Apr 13, 2015 - SJPP to Roncesvalles

Day 1 St Jean Pied de Port to Roncesvalles 25km, 8 hours. There are two routes from St Jean to Roncesvalles, the Napoleon Route and the Valcarlos route, (road route).

The road we took was also a part of the Tour de France (but since we missed the sign, we took pictures of bikers instead haha). We finally reached the point where we would take a tram up to the top of the mountain. There...

Jul 15, 2004 - Voy a ir los Pirineos para ver Le Tour De Francia

Well I have had two fantastic weeks here in Barcelona. Unlike in Madrid,I have met many cool people who have shown me around. I appreciate my alone time in Madrid because I had much time to think and reflect on my journey so far, and spend time reading and relaxing in the parks. It was nice however, to have people to talk to and go out with again. I was lucky to find an inexpensive apartment with the help of my Italian friend Tony. As it turned out... I lived in a flat with three people from Sweeden and a family of three from Ecuador. My...
