Irun, the beginning of the Camino del Norte

For those of you who are interested in the Camino for the future, I
thought some detailed info would help.

August is the busiest time because all of Europe is on vacation and
finding places to sleep, albergues, will be impossible. September is
great with the weather and less travelers, however, the tourist
information office in Irun is open only during the summer. The only
other place you can get info on the Camino and a special passport (Get
stamped in each town you pass) is an the only albergue in town which
opens at 4pm.

Getting to town at 8am I decided to walk to the next town's tourist
office, walk back to the albergue, and return to the second town where
my camp site was. Yes, I love difficulty.
