Two weeks today and the four of us will be in St. Jean having what I hope is not the last supper but rather the first of many along the length of the Camino. The preparations for this trip have been full of many positive and negative emotions. Today I experienced both. Firstly, Mick Mc Cann sent us an email which went on to tell us that the distance we will be walking is roughly the equivalent of walking from his parents house in Glengormley to our house 55 times. Putting it like that he scared the s*** out of me. I was in a really bad place but then Mary found a little gem of information and when she shared it with me both our spirits lifted. On the 6th day of walking, 2.8km outside Estella,  you arrive at the Bodegas Irache with its famous Fuente del Vino. This is where pilgrims can fortify themselves, at the generosity of the Bodegas, for the journey ahead. In NI speak, plenty of wine  for nathin and who's going anywhere.
We continue to be humbled by your generosity and messages of encouragement. Thank you.
