“ The mountain is eight miles up, and eight miles down the other side, and seems to touch the sky. Climb it and you’ll feel you could push the sky with your hand.”
-Codex Calixtinus, ca. 1139
Day two and we are still in France as we continue along the Camino de Santiago French Way through the Pyrenees.
Hmmm… I wonder when we’ll reach the border of Spain? We must have our passports handy so we can show them to the border patrol, right?
Meet our Norwegian Camino friend, Willie Nilsen. Wonderful conversation including an insight into living within the Arctic Circle and Camino tips and bits. (At first we thought he said “Willie Nelson” as in the country singer/songwriter which started a conversation of its own)
The above image from sectionhiker.com shows the view on a clear day. Tough luck for us, but life isn’t perfect and we are accustomed to that. We are just thankful for each injury free step that we take.
Now, where is that border? I see a flag ahead…
Loving this and smiling…
