    Ceret to Banyuls-sur-Mer

    May 16, 2016 in France

    Ok so after a good night's sleep and a French breakfast of croissant, bread and jams & mandarin with apple juice and coffee we set off in a VW van for the top point to start the walk : about45 mins drive back into Spain. Lovely forest a bit cool so put on our beanies . we took a wrong turn at the beginning of the GR10 so we followed the marks the wrong way. At lunch S got out our GPS . We couldn't place ourselves on the map and about 205 mins later we were having trouble deciding which was the route when 2 French women - a mother and adult daughter were walking towards us. We learnt from them that we were near Le Perthus, back past our starting point . We'd travelled 360deg now going west into more of the Pyrenees . Oh dear it wasn't possible at 230 to retrace our steps to start again. S phoned the help person. She called back after making a call to say we couldn't go back but must walk to nearest town which was lePerthus. She would try to arrange transport from there to Banyuls-Sur-Mer. How disappointing and yet she got us transport ( the young guy who had driven us) to BSM. S gave him 50 euros, even though the agency were not charging us , so a tip for him!! The hotel here has a gorgeous view of the sea but is high up on the hill and tomorrow we must get to the train station to go to Carcassone.Read more
