I have to admit that I have a bit of anxiety about the first day from St. Jean Pied de Port to Roncesvalles because it’s a 15 mile walk but an ascent of about 4,500 feet. That’s a bit of a hill! I did come across this video of the first day so now at least I know what it will look like. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bZNrSdO33QQ&feature=youtu.be Cut and past the URL and skip the add when you can to watch.
Pray for good weather.
Looks like beautiful countryside, Tom. You’re going to love this.
As for myself, I feel the need for a short nap after watching the video.
Looks like our climb up the hillside in the Dolomites x 10. But you are in great shape and are well prepared. You’ll be able to enjoy the great scenery!❤️
