Bon Camino

St Blaise where we stayed last night

It’s been 5 days since Tony dropped Irene and I in Lourdes by the Rosary Basilica to embark on our walk to Spain. 

There’s so much to share but the pilgrim walk can be best described only when you experience it yourself.

Today we feel really great the weather is fair. So we pushed ourselves to go beyond the planned destination and covered the extra miles for tomorrow. It may rain so we won’t have to walk cold and wet for too long.

France is such a beautiful country. People are friendly and gracious along the way. It helps that Irene speaks fluent French but even with my limited vocabulary, strangers will wish us “Bon Camino” to encourage us on.

Seems that we’re the first Singaporeans to pass through the many villages and the handful doing the Camino de Santiago. So if you come across our names and possibly a Singapore flag in the pilgrim book, remember we were here first.
