Lourdes

FRANCE | Wednesday, 14 Oct 2009 | Views [210]

Started the long trek home and decided to take a different route home. We called into a town called Pau, but not much there so everyone agreed to that seem it was not far to call into Lourdes. Lourdes is a sacred place for Catholics near the foot of ... Read more >

San Sebastian

SPAIN | Tuesday, 13 Oct 2009 | Views [201]

Decided that we had had enough of medieval villages so for a change of pace decided to head to the Brothers favourite place, San Sebastian, Spain, 380 km away.   Woke to a crisp 2 degrees celsius and headed off reasonably early for us.   To ... Read more >
