Today I am leaving for Bordeaux and the southwest of France for a week before beginning my pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela in Spain. I plan on walking the 800 km route for about 40 days and so I won't be posting anything here unless I have access to the internet somewhere along the way. For anyone interested, here is a map of the popular routes. I leave from St-Jean-Pied-de-Port on the 11th. Take care and God bless.
