Maurice and Massa

Lovely BBQ last night with pilgrims Maurice, from Québec, and Massa, from Tokyo. You won’t believe it but these guys are 66 and 67 respectively and Massa has walked more than 7000kms on trails like this.

It was wonderful listening to how Maurice and Massa had met during another pilgrimage several years ago and had stayed in touch. They decided to do the full Camino de Santiago together.

It is great for the children to sit down for a meal with people from so many different countries. We have already had 11 nationalities staying with us – French, English, Japanese, Italian, Dutch, Belgian, Swiss, German, French Canadian, American and Australian.

We had a houseful last night, including Mark and Lynette Dagless, who have been staying with us as B&B guests for a few days. Mark worked with Chris in Norfolk and says he seems to have adapted very well to his new life in France!

Mark and Lynette have been all over the place in the last few days, visiting the mountains, Lourdes and Pau, flying home first thing this morning. Like us, they were horrified to experience the cold spell we’re having and cosy fires were the order of the evenings.
