Things are starting to fall in place for my Camino de Santiago de Compostela. I have almost all my gear, I’ve read practically an entire library of books on the Camino, and now I’m in the process of booking places to stay while in Paris and St.-Jean-Pied-de-Port (the community where I start my walk). I know where I want to stay in St.-Jean…a little place called L’esprit du Chemin’ seen here at the right (photo taken from this web site).
Paris, however, is more difficult. I’m looking for someplace relatively close to the train station (Gare du Nord), clean but inexpensive (not that anything is really inexpensive in Paris!). Anyone have any suggestions?
