Friday April 8, 2005, 76 km (47 miles) – Total so far: 296 km (184 miles)
What awful weather: rain, hail, sun, wind – we’ve had the lot. Hence our luxury caravan at a budget-busting €80 a night. We covered a lot more distance than we’d anticipated today because most of the campsites are still closed for winter.
This coastline is extremely hilly. It’s where the Pyrenees and Northern Spanish mountains meet the sea. Foolishly we assumed that by following the coastline we would largely stay on the flat. This is not the case.
