    Day 6: Anglure - Mery-sur-Seine

    August 18, 2016 in France ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Distance: 11.5KM (123/1877)
    Weather: 25C, wet!
    Mood: Good! Short and pretty walk
    Blisters: 5 (bought lots of things to treat them)

    Here comes the rain...

    After five days of relentless heat, I genuinely thought that I would love a fresh and rainy day, so when madame told me it was really raining quite a bit I smiled and said I would be fine and rain was "bon". Well, I was wrong. When you are walking for hours on a day, rain is never good, maybe a 5 min interval, but not a 2 hour intense one! First of all, my jacket isn't 100% waterproof, secondly you cannot sit anywhere and put your painful feet up to rest.... I hadn't quite thought about that yet. Luckily, I was saved, by my neighbour Martin's favourite place to have a break. I found an actual bus stop. A non-smelly, completely covered (it was more like a little house) space, where I could rest a bit and dry out my coat. I never saw a bus, and I won't tell you about the state of the toilet at the back, but I was grateful regardless.... And even now, I am at the campsite typing from inside my tent, which is kind of cozy, but really wish it will be dry when I have to pack up tomorrow and head to Troyes.

    P.s. Sorry, I can't help myself with the Beatles references 😀
