Just like that, time has flown by and we are sitting in the departure lounge waiting for our flight to Frankfurt. After that flight is a ridiculously long 10 hour layover before our flight to Bilbao. Trust me, if I wasn’t needing the frequent flier points, I would have found a better way to get to Spain. We will spend one night in Bilbao, then take a bus or train to Irun to start our walk.
Many people wonder why we don’t walk to the airport in Singapore to begin our Caminos but all of our Singapore know that answer. Even though it is only a 7km walk from our house, it would be 85% highway which is illegal to walk on here. Furthermore, I got sweaty just walking from the door of our house to the taxi on the street out front. If we walked longer than that, we would be drenched for the whole flight to Frankfurt! BTW, that last exclamation point was thrown in for anyone reading this blog who happens to be a Trump follower on Twitter. Sentences just aren’t worth reading unless they have at least one exclamation point.
We are excited about what lies ahead for us. As always, we are also a little nervous too. One day, I’ll twist an ankle stepping onto the plane or forget to bring my wallet. I just hope it’s not this trip. Did we forget something important? Will I lose my passport? Will the ATM machine eat my card? Will the sole of my boot fall off in the middle of the first day? Again, hopefully not this trip. Please be kind to us God.
More later. Peace y’all.
