Day one was saint jean to rocensvelles. My spelling will be fantastic today because I don’t have my guide handy. Because of the rain, and storms, we were made to walk the alternative route. So instead of the route Napoleon took…I took Charlemane’s route. I’m still good with that. Total hiking about 27 kilometers. Our average will be 25-30 over the course of the month. Margaret did a great job. Today was ALL uphill. And I mean up. On jeep real type trails. Breakfast was pan o chocolate, lunch was a tea, an a half chocolate bar, snack was hot chocolate and fig newtons. dinner is yet to come. You have to make reservations at the restaurants because they fill up with pilgrims.
It was wet and cold with snow showed. Brrrrr. I was not wearing enough, and did not bring cold weather gear.
