Let me know if I am forgetting something…

Tonight we are going to a weddingparty. At 3 o’clock tonight I am pikking up my parents and drive them to Brussels Airport. They are going on holiday to Morrocco…

Tomorrow we sleep in until 10 AM. We ‘ll load the car and have lunch at my in-laws and then at around 1 PM we are leaving for France!

We should arrive half-way by tomorrow evening.

Monday morning we should arrive in Saint Jean-Pied-de-Port, the starting point…getting our first stamp and looking for a place to spend the night, park the car for a couple of days, have dinner and go to sleep early.

Tuesday morning around 6 AM we will start walking! The real adventure starts right there 😉

Stay in touch and enjoy the weekend,
