Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port
(Donibane Garazi)

Way back in 2000 when I was on vacation, I spent a day and a half in Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port (known as Donibane Garazi in Basque), and I was very pleased with it. The small town is very nicely situated by the foothills of the Pyrenees, and I got the impression that there are plenty of excursion options in the area. This time I stayed for five wonderfully lazy days. That is, they were lazy from an intellectual point of view. But all days offered physical activity with walks or bicycle tours. I was kind of interested of renting a car, since there appears to be some spectacular natural sights in the close surroundings. But there is no car rental in Saint-Jean, and I just could not muster the energy to rent a car in Bayonne and drive to Saint-Jean - it's only 60 km. Did I say that it was lazy?

There are over 100 pictures from Saint-Jean and the surroundings, and many of them are of the same landscape - or at least the same type of landscape - so there is not very much text. Just browse and enjoy!
