Hotel Ramuntcho we LOVE you! Oh, what a clean, comfortable, and convenient gem in the center of the old town. The proprietors here are most pleasant. They served a generous breakfast of fresh orange juice, warm flaky croissant, baguette with a variety of jams, mild soft cheese, yogurt, and cafe au lait (allowing us to proportion the coffee and steamed milk!). After a delightful night of much appreciated horizontal sleep, we devoured our meal before we even considered taking a picture.

He was obviously being polite and not ...

But it is the last day and we walk....we walk into Saint Jean Pied De Port our destination.... 20 ...
So after three days travelling on long haul flights and trains and staying in hotels great and small I arrive in Saint Jean Pied de Port (SJPdP ), I am so looking forward to breathing fresh air after days in air conditioning. I'm almost certain that the lady who sat behind me for 11 hours on the Sydney to Seoul leg of my journey has generously shared her cold or flu with me, but nothing can dampen my spirits today.
I've had a few little adventures already. ...
752 Kms - cloudy but warm.
After a great sleep, we left the pension by 8:00. We had the Casa to ourselves which included a breakfast, however, the breakfast was simply a bowl of cheerios like cereal, and a cup of tea! We have not seen our hostess since yesterday.
Although we didn't have a very good breakfast, we left feeling strong and maintained a fast pace. We were able to make it to Zubiri which was 8 Kms by 10:00. The sun was now starting ...
