Day 1 - Traveling can be really painful
Did I ever mention I hate flying? 8 hrs sitting on a seat that hurts your butt was just about the end of me. Of course I'm told I have no butt so I can't figure out why I'm in so much agony. I was able to follow that up with 3 hrs standing upright on a concrete slab at the Paris train station. For dessert I opted for a 6 hr train ride from a car that you couldn't see out of and that was 80 degrees.
We arrived in Bayonne at dinner time and checked into a hotel room that has no air conditioning or fan and it is 90 degrees inside. But the view is nice.
Tomorrow we take a 1 hr train to our starting point - St Jean Piedmont De Port which means base of the mountain - for some reason that should concern me I think.
We're happy to be near our starting point. I think i will take a cold shower and go to bed.
Cassy Will look forward to following your trip. Just found out today some friends of ours son and wife are into day five of the same pilgrimage.
