  • Day85

    79. Etappe: Sarzay

    September 25 in France

    Hui! Das war kalt heute Nacht! Zum ersten Mal habe ich meine Schlafklamotten einfach unter den Wandersachen anbehalten. Denn nachdem ich heute Morgen die Confiture aus dem Kühlschrank genommen hatte, musste ich feststellen, dass im Kühlschrank die gleiche Temperatur herrschte wie im Wohnwagen 🙈 Das Frühstück war trotzdem lecker und gemütlich mit Croissants in meiner Daunenjacke 😅
    Schon nach wenigen Kilometern wurde es wärmer und ich konnte mich von meinen vielen Lagen allmählich trennen. Wir hatten eine tolle Strecke und trafen unterwegs kurz die beiden Frauen aus Deutschland. Nach einem Einkaufs- und Kaffeestopp in La Châtre erreichten wir nach 30 km unser Ziel. Heute übernachten Lucille und ich in einem Gartenhäuschen eines sehr netten, sehr alten Mannes und dessen West Highland Terriers. Es verspricht wieder eine kalte Nacht zu werden, also verlasse ich mich heute nicht auf die bereitgestellten Decken und habe meinen Schlafsack, der angeblich bis 0 Grad mollig warm hält, ausgerollt.

    81. Etappe: Eguzon

    September 27 in France

    Jippie! Heute haben wir wieder 30 km geschafft 🎉 Wir starteten gemeinsam mit Claude kurz nach 8 bei wundervollem Wetter. Der Weg war heute etwas anspruchsvoller aber sehr schön.
    Zu Beginn ging es über ein riesiges Viadukt. In Gargilesse machten wir eine kurze Radler- und Picknick-Pause und verabschiedeten uns von Claude, da er spätestens um 5 in seiner Herberge sein musste. Lucille und ich wollten uns aber noch ein wenig das malerische Künstlerstädtchen ansehen und haben uns deshalb gegen diese Herberge entschieden. In Eguzon beziehen wir heute ein Chambre d'Hotes. Das Haus ist größer als die gestrige Herberge und wir haben es ganz für uns allein. 😊Read more

    80. Etappe: Cluis

    September 26 in France

    Was hab ich gut geschlafen letzte Nacht in unserer kleinen Hütte! Im Schlafsack war es mollig warm und so sind wir erst um 8 aufgestanden 😅
    Zum Kaffee und zum Aufwärmen wurden wir von den Nachbarn eingeladen - wunderbar!
    Dank der Sonne wurde es schnell warm, so dass ich mich nach und nach von meinen Zwiebel-Look verabschiedet habe und zum Ende nur noch mit kurzen Hosen gewandert bin. Zum Mittag gabs heut ein günstiges 3-Gänge-Menü, so dass wir abends nur eine Brotzeit mit Tomatensalat machen. Die heutige Unterkunft in Cluis ist voll, aber sehr gemütlich. Und morgen wird es wohl sehr früh losgehen, da wir ein paar Frühstarter dabei haben und morgen 6 Kilometer mehr machen müssen als geplant. Lucille musst heute Mittag einige Telefonate führen bis es geklappt hat mit einer freien und offenen Herberge.Read more

  • Day23

    Being several hundred kilometres north helps...
    The poor weather continued this morning so after a lovely breakfast which even included a sprinkling of rose petals on the table the day started with the hood up on the car and both of us wearing rain coats inside the car. It wasn't hard rain like yesterday but it did have is moments and one of those was when we stopped at McDonald's for a coffee. It wasn't raining when we went in but the heavens opened just for five minutes as we drank our coffee which was enough to soak Mandy's seat and the Michelin map book she left on it.
    Once we got about 50km north of Limoges it became noticeably warmer and the sky began to clear so off came the jackets. We still didn't get it enough to put down the hood as we could see rain falling to our right.
    We are now at Issoudun in a budget hotel and have just had a nice meal at a nearby La Boucherie steak house which was recommended by an Englishman at the hotel who had admired the car. He works for an English company who upholsters aircraft seats for a nearby Boeing factory. He said he had upholstered an MGTA when he was an apprentice.
    Before the meal we had a walk down town to see the church which was closed and the river which flows well after all the rain. A beer at a sit outside bar gave us the sustenance to walk the 3000 steps according to my phone back to the hotel then a further 1500 to the steak house where we meet the Englishman and his colleague again.

    Day 18: Le Chatelet - La Chatre

    August 30, 2016 in France

    Distance: 31.2 (403/1467.3)
    Weather: 25C, intermittent clouds and sun
    Mood: Social, relaxed with tired feet
    Blisters: 1
    Staying at: Le Presbyterie

    Intending to post a little story tomorrow. My nights are either too social or too tired...

  • Day19

    Distance: 18.6 (421.6/1448.7)
    Weather: 27C, sunny and at times cloudy
    Mood: ultra social
    Blisters: 0 (I DIYed some insoles that seem to work)
    Staying at: Camping Municipal Les Frênes

    A walk with company again! Yesterday I met a Dutch (Richard, 24) and a Belgian (Jonas, 22) guy and we walked together all day. A lovely change to the solitaire walks and with a lot more breaks than I'm used to. Walking together, I have decided, in the right company, is much easier than alone.
    In the evening I met my parents at a campsite and after a beer and a dive in the pool, we all ate together. It was another great, social night, which will become part of my treasured memories of the camino.

    National Park La Brenne

    June 12 in France

    Today dawned sunny and bright so we decided to visit the National Park de la Brenne, which is basically a network of lakes interspersed with ancient woodland. First stop of the day was a great bird hide at Lake Purais... lots of water lilies and nesting whiskered terns. We visited three hides in total... all with different birds on offer. Highlights were the red backed shrike and the black redstart! Home for lunch before an afternoon swim dodging the showers. Three more games of ping pong... Nat in the lead so far but who knows what tomorrow holds!Read more

    La Ligne

    June 10 in France

    After getting the Eurotunnel on Friday and overnighting outside Abbeville we drove down to our home for the next week just outside the village of Angles sur l’Anglin. We have a gorgeous little one bedroom house in a converted farm complex of gites in the middle of the countryside. We just had time for a quick dip in the pool before dinner. On Sunday we went to a little market in Pleumartin and then had a look at the other local villages of La Roche Possay and Vicq.Read more

    Grebe avec le cou noir

    June 14 in France

    We returned to the Parc de la Brenne for more brilliant bird watching yesterday. Highlights included a night heron and watching some baby purple herons in their nest... but by far the best half hour was spent watching some black necked grebes feeding their babies. The young wait at the surface while the parents dive down for some food, and then pop up to their excited and hungry chick whom they feed immediately. When done with feeding the babies climb on their parents’ back and hitch a lift. Absolutely delightful. The afternoon involved more swimming, ping pong and naps xRead more

  • Day20

    Chaillac, France

    August 15, 2016 in France

    Today we decided to take a 'day off' and just chill by the lake. Our first choice was lake Bellebouche, but they don't allow dogs, so we tried our luck at Chaillac instead. Best of all-it's so close to Liglet! We found ourselves a quiet spot away from the loud crowd, with shade and all. The water was warm but refreshing at the same time(it was our first swimming this summer!). Thumbs up!

    And now -time for some wine and sunset 😉
