TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Les Pyrenees Saint Jean Pied de Port
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.

The Pyrenees are magnificent so every second the scenery is spectacular...this is what makes the whole walk worthwhile... Wish us luck for tomorrow and will keep you posted about tomorrow. Dinner, bed and breakfast in a twin room with bathroom but no sheets ( had to get out the orange slug) for 43 Eros per person...not bad don't you ...
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. ...
... we catch up with Diane and Denise and walked with them for awhile. Diane lived in Lyttleton and lost her house in the earthquake. She was still waiting for her house to be zoned, but had sold most of her possessions, was doing her 4 months in Europe and then moving to Tasmania to be close to her children. She had met Denise on a tramping trip in the South Island and as they both wanted to do the Camino, they set off to do it.
We come to ...
