As soon as I learned I was going to walk the Camino, I ordered stacks of books from the library and began reading, searching, perusing and LEARNING everything about Spain, the Camino, traveling, Europe, food and hiking. I learned many pilgrims fly to Paris, take the train, then a bus to a popular starting point Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, France. This sounded like the most exciting plan! Flying to Paris! MIRACLE!!
