On an unknown road

 Somewhere after Navarrenx, in the Basque country, nearing the Pyrenees

"I’d rather be stumbling along an unknown road
than safely cooped up in even the nicest cul-de-sac"

I loved walking down this wet path, under the shelter of trees dripping with the rain. It was refreshing and enlivening. And flat and easy- which was not to be the case on the chemin later in the day!


  1. Give me the unknown road any day! Remember well the beautiful Basque country ...

  2. Yes, it's a shame more people don't start their Camino back somewhere like Navarrenx or even before- just to experience it.

  3. In fact, Kiwi, and I think I may have said this before - I enjoyed the Le Puy-St Jean path even more than the Spanish section! I think about all the routes I've done often; they seem to attach themselves very deeply within you.
