They think back next year

One of the expeditionaries tells us:

On September 1 in the afternoon a group of 25 Italians arrived in Pallerols. Upon arrival, Ramon welcomed us and helped us a lot every day we were there.

We did almost all the stages and, although we had to shorten some, all the boys ended up very happy with the experience.

The truth is that we were quite tired because we walked about 4 to 6 hours a day, and on the day we climbed the mountain of Aubenç, we walked 10 hours.

Every day, after each stage, we returned to Pallerols for dinner and sleep, since the rectory was our base camp. So we organized to return well in advance and prepare dinner.

Every day we read the texts written by the expeditionaries of the year 1937, which are included in the book: Una storica avventura sui Pirenei.

On the penultimate day we decided to rest by spending a whole morning at the Cabin of San Rafael and surroundings. Another day we visited Organyà and we were able to learn a little more about the Catalan language by visiting a small sample where the first homilies written in Catalan are preserved.

Finally, on day 5 in the early morning we had to say goodbye to the Pyrenees to Rome.

The experience was so positive that the parents of the children have asked us to organize it again. A mother has already signed up and told me: questo cammino lo voglio fare anch’io il prossimo anno!
