    101. Etappe: Orthez

    October 19, 2018 in France ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Nach einem entspannten Start und einer kleinen Nebelwanderung erreiche ich mein heutiges Ziel Orthez! klingt spanisch - ist aber noch in Frankreich. Kurz vorm Ziel hat dann die Sonne auch den Kampf gegen die Wolken gewonnen und ich komme bei Sonnenschein an. Das Refuge ist heut in einem historischen Gebäude untergebracht. Ich habe wieder Gesellschaft - Ben aus Belgien ist auch hier. Ich habe schon viel von ihm in den Pilgerbüchern gelesen, da ich einen Tag hinter ihm gelaufen bin. Er ist nun auf der Rückreise und nimmt morgen den Zug nach Hause. Für mich geht es dann weiter Richtung Spanien.Read more

    Special encounters

    There are these meetings with other people that just feel so intense and special, you think they will stay with you forever.
    Marc and I treated ourselves with a bit of Luxury in The Campagne at the house of Laurence and Henry and their 4 little dogs. Laurence's welcome was warm and quickly we decided we would stay for dinner (without even knowing the price, how wild!) The 98 year old (but still so vital) Henry showered me with his charm and his stories about his days as a fighter pilot, fashion designer, inventor and hotel owner in the Caribbean (in a combination of French and broken english) while Laurence entertained Marc. Wine was superfluous, the food was delicious and we had to try various liquors to finish the feast. We felt we really connected with these people, which we couldn't completely understand due to the language and difference in background. A beautiful night, which will remain a great memory for life.
    The other meeting was with an entrepreneur who had just bought private clinic in Orthez. He picked us up from the side of the road (my first hitch hiking experienced) and drove us back to Hagetemau where he bought us a coffee as well!
    After these special encounters, lots of time in the sun, little dog cuddles and quality time with Marc I feel truly recharged!

    Esperbasque day 1: ponies, ponies, ponie

    July 15, 2017 in France ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    This campsites motto - we have no rules, only love. Ping pong in the hay barn, old French cars to tinker with and the kids can catch and groom and ride the ponies, pet the pot bellied pig and swoon over the bunnies.
