Lourdes asks alot of questions about your faith. You line up to go into the Grotto with 1000 other people all pushing and snarling just trying to get close to the rocks to touch them and rub objects all over them. Do i believe that the spring water will heal? I don't know but it did get me thinking and asking myself some questions so i suppose it did have a certain religious (don't know if that is correct word for it) effect on me.
Our cmapsite here was lovely, run by french people who couldn't speak a word of English but sold the best red wine i have tasted on our trip, Duc D'eyssac 2005
We then meandered our way down to San Sebastian in Spain...WOW another completely different culture again. We headed to the beach surprised to find the Atlantic rather warm, walked all the way around the bay and back, ate tapas in wonderful pintxo bars, drank sangria and finally had a wonderful Spanish Paella. We loved San Sabastian and took with us a small snipped of Spain that will be with us until we can return again and travel the whole country and give it the time it deserves.
So now we are back in the camper and making our way back through France to England. We only have 5 nights left in our camper when this part of our trip is over! The camper is really quiet. We are all looking forward to coming home but are also sad that we will probable never do this again for this amount of time as a family. I think we have all changed soooooo much and i would stay it is the best thing we could have ever done for ourselves and our kids! It will stay with us forever.
