    Hey UnkleHammy - Where will you be starting your Camino this year? Do you have dates yet? Were you able to find a good deal on an airfare? You must be excited! Buen Camino!

    I'll be in Saint Jean on 11 May leaving on 13 May and getting a ride to the grave. After that I'll just have to take each day one at a time. I have a return flight some time in July and plan to pay the blood money for an early return. An open ticket was much more expensive paying the blood money for the return. And I don't think the air fair was great, but I paid it yesterday. Now to get reservations.

    How exciting UnkleHammy! Will you be blogging your days? Would love to follow you. Are
    you flying into Paris, Madrid, or somewhere else? I am still debating whether to purchase
    roundtrip or open ended as well. After the Camino I hope to travel around France for a few
    weeks

    I am flying from Fresno, with several changes of plane/airline, into Biariatz. Then getting a shared taxi to Saint Jean. I might do a blog, but I haven't figured out how to do it yet. First I have to get the IRS happy, then I can learn something new.

    When I checked the open return option it was much more expensive than a round trip with paying a penalty.

    Hey UnkleHammy - You might check with the folks at Express Bourricot for getting you to SJPP. They were my first choice last year for the last leg of the trip. Unfortunately, they were't picking up any other pilgrims in Bayonne the day I arrived. For 19€ , assuming a full van, from the airport in Biarritz to SJPP it would certainly be more convenient than taking a taxi and then the train. It might also save you some significant time particularly if you have to wait in Bayonne for the train. The folks at Bourricot are very delightful to deal with and by simply sending them an email, you'll find out if they're already scheduled to pick up others at the airport. If no others are being picked up right now, that might very well change closer to your flight date. It's the easiest way to get to SJPP. Buen Camino!
