    Friday 23rd March 2018 is my start date leaving St Jean. I've been dreaming of this for a loooooong while. Hoping for good weather and good company. See you a long the way

    Ha! I hardly slept the night before we bought our tickets. I also didn't sleep much the following night after we had bought our tickets. The anticipation was overwhelming.

    The route Napoleon from St Jean usually does not open until 1 March, however the Valcarlos (lower route will be open, open all year round as far as I know).

    Best of luck and Buen Camino to all

    And Happy New Year of course.

    Greg

    I believe that the Route Napoleon is closed until and including 31 March 2018. Here's the official notice: http://www.caminosantiago.org/cpperegrino/prensa/verprensa.asp?PrensaID=11129
