Exploring Saint Jean Pied de PortJune 20 in France
We had a rest day as we explored Saint Jean and learned some of it’s history. We climbed up to the Citadel to take in views of the town below, walked long the fortified walls, and weaved our way along the narrow streets of this medieval town. At one point we found ourselves in a shop just full of spices...bags and bags! We are in awe with how old everything is!
It was a hot day today, getting up to a very humid 88 degrees. Tomorrow is supposed to be a tad bit cooler as we head out to begin our hike...thank goodness!
We have already met some of the nicest people. A couple from Australia spent some time with us after they had just finished the le Puy Route through France, and a couple from Virginia is going to join us at the Pilgrims’ Mass tonight in the 13th century church, Notre-Dame-du-Bout-du-Pont. We spent some quiet time sitting in there earlier today.Read more
