1450 metres! [4757 ft] At the highest point of the Route de Napoléon in the Pyrenees. Here the descent to Roncesvalles starts. . Not walking on my own anymore - made wonderful friends along the way. Here I am with Leigh from the USA, who became a great walking mate and friend. . The photo of me and Leigh was taken by Matthias, a Swiss whom we called 'The Swistler' as he was whistling away most of the time. And he knew every word of the South African national anthem! 😮😄 .

Camino adventure - day 2 - May 2018. . I spent some time walking up the Pyrenees with an experienced hiker from Manchester who told me all about the movie 'The Way'. Later on I discovered that this movie inspired many pilgrims. We walked at a good pace and then took a break at a food truck where I got water, a stamp in my Pilgrim Record, and a photo.😀 . #crossingthepyrenees #foodtruck #pilgrimage #mountainviews #mountainlovers #orissontoroncesvalles #orisson #roncesvalles #hikingadventure #naturelovers #camino #caminofrances #caminodesantiago #caminomay2018 #peregrino #yosoyperegrino #pilgrim #camaraderie #hikersofinstagram #hike #travelexperience #creatingmemories #lifeexperience #beautifulplaces #caminoexperience #traveldiary2018 #outdoorsadventure #myjourney #travelblogging #canon📷

Refuge Orisson - Route Napoléon - First Camino night - May 2018 . After a fairly steep climb from Saint-Jean-Pied-du-Port, I reached Orisson in the Pyrenees. Here I met many other pilgrims. At dinner, each of us had to stand up, introduce ourselves and tell everyone why we decided to walk the Camino. It was a pleasant evening and I enjoyed the basic but delicious three-course dinner and wine. . I met many of these lovely people again along the way. . #refugeorisson #caminofrances #orisson #orissontoroncesvalles #payebasque #routenapoleon #caminodesantiago #stjamesway #pilgrimage #peregrino #losemyself #pilgrim #roadtohappiness #yellowarrows #mountain #pyrenees #hikingadventure #hiking #travelphotos #albergue #frenchpyrenees #ilovehiking #ilovetravelling #buencamino #may2018 #europeanexperience #wanderlust #travelblogging #igerstravel #canon

I hope you enjoyed Episode 1 of The Pilgrimage on BBC2 which is still available on the iPlayer. I can vividly remember this landscape as it was so beautiful and the scale of the mountains was something I’d never seen before. I will hopefully go back one day and spend much more time gazing! _______________________________________________________________ #camino #landscape_captures #landscape_lovers #landscape #spain #bbc #bbc2 #orisson #orissonrefuge #orissontoroncesvalles #santiagodecompostela #compostela #tv #vivecamino #elcaminodesantiago #camino #pilgrim #pilgrims #pilgrimage #Santiago #compostela #spain #thewayofsaintjames #stjamesway #peregrino #pellegrino #pyrenees #hiking views #hiking #traveldeeper #photography #outdoor #adventure #explore

Hoje foi um dia de paisagens lindíssimas, de um forte encontro com a natureza. Também foi momento de render homenagem para um chefe que se tornou um amigo. #dia2 #caminhodesantiago #orissontoroncesvalles #20kms
