Day 1 – Our journey begins. Irun to Pasajes de San Juan
First day on the Camino we hiked 17k up and down the mountains between Irun and Pasajes de San Juan. Because of a pending storm and my concerns that my trained-at-sea-level legs wouldn’t cooperate, we decided on the lower elevation or the “non-Alpine route”. It was still a very tough walk with rocky paths and steep inclines. Regardless we were treated to some wonderful views and more than a few laughs along the way. Most importantly, we made it to Pasajes de San Juan just before the storm blew into this small harbor town with 40 knot winds. Phew!
I decided to walk across Spain to pursue the many things I love about life: the great outdoors, spending time with friends, meeting new people, food, wine, music, and challenging the physical self. I'm fortunate to have a wonderful husband who has provided me with the encouragement, support, and love I've needed over the past several months of training and preparing.
