Camino Accounts I


What's Camino: Way of St. James
Recommendations: "The Way" movie; http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1441912/

Traditionally, if not at your door, the Way of St. James starts in St. Jean-Pied-de-Port, French Basque country; just where the first serious slopes of the Pyrenees start.
I had to get there from Madrid, Spain. It was a 5-hour drive with a bunch of French guys (thanks Michel - the guy with a map up there - and blablacar.com).

Then, me and my backpack were left in the middle of town celebration going on. Free food and traditional Basque outfits. My Camino was about to start the next day, 8 am sharp.

Now, here this is how “The Camino Accounts” starts.
