... of Mysteries of the Rosary. Then we went down to the grotto, actual site of the apparitions. Folk lined up to touch the walls, worn smooth by millions of fingers; water trickling out of the rock; a statue of Mary and a huge candle holder. Then we looked at the candles, held in huge barrow-like structures. They burn hundreds of tonnes of wax every year. Next we saw folk lining up for their turn in the baths. You can be immersed ...

France again.

A long but interesting travel day. Took a long time to get out of Bilbao- it has Spain's longest tunnel, especially if you travel it twice! The Basque Country of Northern Spain is very different from Spain in general. Different language, darker complexions, and the houses are much more like what we have seen in Austria or Italy than in Spain. The country is hilly, richer, and greener. The coast along the Bay of Biscay very rugged with ...

I haven't come this far to not get a better view of the Pyrenees Mountains which I see in great detail during each year's Tour de France. Lourdes rests at the base of this great mountain range.

Up at 5.00am, checked out and at the station by 7.00am. Departure for Lourdes at 8.28am and then a train trip that seemed to take longer than the already lengthy 6 hours. I managed to book the train, locate the departure details on the large board in departures and then finally get off at the correct station without a word of English or French.

Lourdes, a small town with a population of 14 000, must go close to doubling that ...

Day 4: 119km and 3600m of ascent.
OK - now we are in Lourdes. For those of you of the Catholic faith or who have any knowledge of the background to why Lourdes is of special interest, you might be surprised to find me here. It just happens to be about 12 km from where we finished this stage and to be a bigger centre with more hotels. For those of you who don’t have the background, this is a place ...
