Camino de Santiago trek
September, 2022
Check back for the travel log from my 500 mile/800 km trek on the Camino de Santiago from St. Jean Pied de Port, France, over the Pyrenees Mountains and across Spain! 
St Jean Pied de Port, France, where it all begins.
Day one crossing the Pyrenees. Five hours of sideways rain, followed by heavy fog. Took me 10 hours. Hands down the toughest day.
Crossing the Pyrenees. Some parts of the trail were obvious, other areas there was simply a sign with an arrow showing the general direction.
Near Roncesvalles, I crossed into Spain on day one.

What's up with this? Was it just too hot? LOL Came across it near Los Arcos.

Near Melide.
I stopped in Melide for grilled octopus covered in garlic with boiled potatoes. Best meal in Spain!
Finally arrived on day 30 at the Cathedral in Santiago de Compostela on a soggy morning!
