From France to Spain and Beyond


Believe it or not but we actually started walking. On the first day we took a taxi to the french side of the border, to Saint Jean Pied de Port, which is a lovely tiny village in the slopes of the Pyrenees. We said Buen Camino to each other, said bonjour to a very lovely french girl, and started the long journey to Compostela. One thing that you should know about the mountains – they´re very high. But it felt really good after we´ve reached the peak (1440 m) and crossed the border to Spain, leaving the antipathic french people behind.

What can we tell? The first two days were just great. Lots of people are doing the camino, from all ages nations and races, and it makes the experience really communal and fun. At night we slept in a monestry, which looked as if it was a field hospital of pillgrims, because there were 100 beds, in a huge hall. We drank very good spanish wine, ate some fish, and drank a lot of good old american coke. During the evening we played the guitar – songs in Hebrew, English and even some in Spanish – but it didn´t get us any chicas… Oh well.

One of the more amazing things that we saw during the road was a couple of pillgrims from France – a husband and a wife – which are doing the trip since 2004 in parts. The thing is that the husband is blind, and the wife is holding his hand during the whole time and leading him the way.

And by the way – we are now in a place called Zubiri. We find it quite amusing.

We really hope that we will be able to upload some photos soon, because in the mean time they are blocking the USB ports.

 Catch up again soon…

Just a brief update:

1. We are alive.

2. We managed to get to Barcelona from Bucharest, Israel and Amsterdam and to meet each other without any problems. Isn’t that a surprise?

3. Nobody’s luggage was lost.

4. We spent the night on a bench in the city’s main square (placa catalunya). Very bizzare indeed.

5. Things are going as planned, so far, and in a few hours we’ll be headed to the north of spain, away from civilization and closer to the pilgramige spirit. We will get to our starting point, a little town on the french side of the border by the silly name of Saint Jean-Pier de-Port, and start out journey on Sunday morning.

6. The first day includes a 22 km climb through the Pyrenees . Noam is just thrilled.

7. Rami and Rita are seperating. Let’s have a moment of silence.
