    Cold night

    June 5, 2016 in France

    Through so much nature we finally stopped in a small village and slept under the stars. Really beautiful.

    Before falling asleep we watched a battle between a snake and a cat not far from us. The cat seems to have won.

    I woke up sometimes during the night. It was freezing. But my attitude was very simple and accepting:
    Wenn es kalt ist dann ist es kalt

    However for my sister it was the worst night.

    Angel

    June 7, 2016 in France

    We left our shelter in the morning and bought groceries at the next city. After a nice relaxing breakfast we continued walking. Along the way we met another pilgrim carrying 15kg. We had a picnic together the guy was so nice and gave us a beer, made us a cappuccino and other stuff. We walked together and found a nice hut with a water source outside and a fireplace inside the hut. We decided to stay there. The guy gave us even more snacks and even made a soup for all of us! He was so kind. He was French and started 3 weeks before. He carries a tent and is very well equiped, he even has a working solar charger!

    We played games together and even thought it was hard to communicate it was still very fun. We played a game called tanks and then played card games, because we didn't have cards we made cards out of paper. Later we chilled at a fire we made inside and at night we went for a small night hike. It was so cool not seeing anything when the lights were off.
    I slept on the table and the rest slept on the floor. The table was very comfortable.

    Paradise

    June 8, 2016 in France

    We had coffee in the morning thabks to he guy we met. His name is Coco.
    We walked and bathed in a lake nearby. The rest of the way Coco and us were seperated, but we met again in the last village of today. We had a nice dinner and he appeared. We chilled and set our sleeping spot next to a church on the top of the hill, having a nice view on the village and the stars. Coco made us try a French speciality of this area which was really good. It was beans with some sauce and duck. We played cards togetherRead more

    Hotel

    June 9, 2016 in France

    In the morning we arrived at a lake we swam in. We passed through many villages throughout the day but walked most of the way in a nice trail with many crystal rocks. We arrived in the big city with Coco and decides to stay in a hotel since there were no Gítes nearby. It felt so amazing to have a shower!!Read more

  • Day13

    Wir verlassen die Cevennen Richtung Mittelmeer. Unser Seniorauto ist wieder gepackt, und wir fahren wir über die Berge der Cevennen Richtung Cirque de Navacelles. Ich war schon auf unserer letzten Reise restlos begeistert von diesem Naturspektakel und kann es kaum erwarten, dass die Kinder diesen Ort erleben. Im Mittelpunkt des Cirques wartet ein grandioser Wasserfall auf uns. Ich packe selbstverständlich die Badesachen in die Tasche. Uli zweifelt, ich ganz und gar nicht. Die Badeentscheidung war natürlich bei den Kindern nicht einen Moment lang in Frage gestellt. Lautstark klettern wir über den Rand des Wasserfalls. Ein kurzer Moment des Überlegens. Kinder sind aber auch auf der unteren Plattform zu sehen, also sollte es machbar sein. Nur wenige Momente später stehen wir vor dem ersten Felsenbasein an der Seite des sprudelnden Wasserfalls. Hier fällt uns die Entscheidung nicht mehr ganz so leicht ;-) Mit skeptischen Gesichtern stehen wir vor diesem herrlich klarem, glitzerndem - bedrohlich kaltem Wasser. Lara erwähnt ganz geschickt einen möglichen Kreislaufschock beim Eintauchen in eisige Temperaturen. Die Entscheidung fällt jetzt noch schwerer! Beantwortet wird die Frage "ob?" aber nur Sekunden später, als ein höchstens 4jähriges Mädchen an der Hand ihres Vaters ohne eine Spur von zögerlicher Angst in das kalte Nass springen. Lara und Carlotta sind unsere Sprunghelden! 1 2 3 - und rein!. Und fast erfroren wieder raus! Brrrrrrrr! Ich lasse keine weiteren Gedanken zu, hinter her! Amon und Noah folgen, und Vincent? Der tänzelt noch immer ängstlich von einem auf dem anderen Fuß am Felsrand hin und her! Die Panik vor Laras erklärtem Kreislaufschock bremst ungemein! Dann aber doch! Und wieder ist Lara die Erste, die in die große Fontäne des Wasserfalls springt!!!! Applaus!!!! Alle hinterher, doch Lara ist die unbestrittene Heldin unserer blauen Lagune!!!!
    Viele Sprünge später und voller Stolz verlassen wir den Cirque. Auf zum südlichsten Punkt unserer Reise!

    chez Daisy

    June 4, 2016 in France

    Comme prévu nous passons le weekend chez ma soeur Daisy. Rémi en profite pour faire le fou avec sa cousine. Hier soir au repas la conversation entre adultes a tourné autours du pourquoi et comment avoir choisi cette vie. C'est surtout Franck très prêt de son confort qui n'imagine pas que l'on puisse vivre dans un CC. Ni même comment aimer vivre loin de tout.Read more

  • Day8

    Lake day

    June 6, 2016 in France

    In the morning Caro left to the next village because it was very cold. Speedy and I woke up with the sun. It felt really nice as the coldness disappeared.

    We met up with Caro and she told us that she was in this village at 6am and the pilgrims she met before were there and let her into the Gíte in which she could rest and eat breakfast. Speedy and I bought stuff from the shop and we ate at a bench near the river. The Santiago way was mostly along this river in which we also swam in. In the afternoon we made it to a big lake. We chilled there and swam more. Very relaxing day. Since we were all quite tired we stayef under a roof in the next village next to a church. It rained at night but luckily we had a roof.Read more
