On Saturday 3rd July, I flew from Stansted to Biarritz, then jumped on a bus to St Jean de Luz where I caught another bus to Hendaye. I then wandered across the Pont Saint Jacques to enter Spain at Irun. From Hondarribia harbour it was a fairly short hike up the hill to reach the Faro de Cabo Higuer lighthouse, with handy campsite right next door. I didn't feel that hungry when I arrived, so just had an evening meal of bread, cheese and biscuits, which funnily enough turned out to be my staple diet for the entire trip. I spent the evening looking out at the Atlantic and thinking about the task ahead.
