Nicolas's odyssey through France

28 August 2016

First day - St Jean Pied de Port to Orisson This is the first day of walk and am truly excited to finish this first leg. Actually it's not the hardest part of the Camino, when everybody thought it is. Well what happened was that we split a more arduous walk from st Jean to roncesvalles. It would have been 26 km on our first walk but since we split it to two, the first day is a breeze. We walk only from st Jean to Orisson which is 8km ascent to the Pyrenees. We will return to st Jean today and sleep at the hotel in st Jean. Tomorrow they say is more grueling , considering we are going to walk 18 Kms to roncesvalles from Orisson. These are some of our notable moments in our first day walk.
