A “nero” to be tourists in Pamplona, our best family style albergue pilgrim meal yet, and more Iberican serrano ham.
Our first few days include resting my knees, a 12th century partially pagan abbey, a surprise albergue pool, and plenty of café con leche.
Nearly 18 miles and 4500 feet of elevation gain really tested us but we made it and crossed the border into Spain.
Beautiful Bruges lace and Belgian canal hopping is marred by an excruciating day of travel.
Rural coastland takes me into Belgium, Bruges, and my baby.
After 3 weeks apart Vanessa and I finally meet back up in the Dam for some good fun with Amy.
Jet lag loomed and setting up the bike was stressful but a weekend in Paris was also just as lovely as you would expect.
Vanessa and I interview each other about our upcoming three month trip to cycle and WWOOF in France, Belgium & Holland, and hike in Spain.
