An ambiguous title but there’s logic here. We’ve arrived in Bayonne and tomorrow we’ll make our way to St Jean Pied de Port C-Day -1. The following morning, C-Day, we start. So, what’s Bayonne like? Bayonne is a charming town sitting on the river Adour. When we arrived, the town square was cordoned off and the square was full of people. We thought some protest was afoot but no, there was a local rugby match being televised and the whole town was out to support their team. The square was alive with balloons of Sky blues and white and the match was being televised on a massive screen in the town square. What an atmosphere!
We decided to get our train tickets to St Jean Pied de Port as it was a 7:45am start. Quelle domage, no trains on Sunday due to strike! Luckily we can get a 3:00pm bus so we have a day to kill in Bayonne, not difficult as they have a festival on this weekend.
