A trip or a pilgrimageMay 19 in France
Today was a day of meeting pilgrims. This morning we met a couple of motorcyclists who had stayed at our hotel, I wrongly assumed they were on their way to the GP. They were heading back to Switzerland from Spain and hope to get home tonight. The lady was riding a BMW GS which is my favourite modern bike and the man was in a enduro KTM and will compete in his first long distance enduro later this year.
Then at lunch time we deviated to a beautiful little village called St Catherine-de-Fierbois which is where Jeanne-d-Arc got her sword and we got a lovely meal at the Auberge Jeanne d Arc. As we were leaving we got chatting with a couple of cyclists who had cycled from Amsterdam and are heading for Santiago d Compostela in northern Spain following a route of pilgrims.
When we arrived here at Chenay we met a man called Han walking past the hotel.... would you believe on the same pilgramage route as the cyclists!. He was so interesting to talk to that we joined him for dinner and discussed many things. It was another good day.Read more
