Camino Frances Day 0 – Saint Saint Jean Pied de Port France

Camino Frances Day 0.
Flew from Southampton and shared a mini van from from the airport at Bayonne to Saint Jean Pied de Port.

Well the first day at Saint Jean Pied de Port France has been a great even went to the pilgrim mass. Not that many there. The singing voice of the priest and the congregation in the old church was something special.

All the accommodation is full. The last train here was full and overflow had to catch the bus. I may need to get out of this wave of pilgrims that are starting tomorrow.

So what do you do before setting off on a Pilgrimage. Go for a walk of course. Checked out the citadel on top of the hill. I am huffing and puffing just getting around this old town!

Just had dinner with my first Camno ‘family’. Has been a wonderful and unique experience. The host here has the ability to make everyone at ease and bring strangers close together in just an hour or so.

It is 9.45 doors are closed at 10pm and quiet time is from 10.30 to 6.15am. Alarms are not allowed apparently we are to be awoken by ‘Angels’ guess I will find out in the morning what that means! Even if I finish tomorrow it has already been worth doing.🙂
