waterfall marks the start of the River Gave. Vehicles stop at the town and you either walk or hire a horse (€25 return) or donkey. The sign said it was a
one-hour walk but we reckon this is the same feller who does the ‘one-minute to Carrefour’ signs (if you have been to France you will be familiar with such misleading ads) because we walked for well over an hour (admittedly slowly, because it was uphill) and still only got to the hotel where – if you looked carefully – you could just see tiny people in the distance on the final bit to the waterfall. At this point we decided to stop for a drink and go no further.
Some fine scenery en route, and it being and despite being near Lourdes (and hearing Irish accents amongst the afflicted who were doing a side-trip to the Cirque in wheelchairs) we decided
not to bother. In the past we have done Fatima, Santiago de Compostella, Walsingham and Canterbury and we still haven’t won the lottery, although it may not help that we haven't bought a ticket recently.
staying at Camping Boltaña where we are enjoying the first free wifi of our trip, we do have to go up to reception to enjoy wifi but it’s a good signal andwe have been able to download the paper onto the iPads quite quickly.
