    82. Etappe: Saint-Germain-Baupre

    September 28 in France

    Was für ein toller Sonnentag! 🌞 Lucille und ich waren uns einig, dass wir uns im Moment im schönsten Department der bisherigen Reise befinden. Es ist sehr ländlich mit vielen kleinen Dörfern und liebevoll restaurierten Häusern. Es ging entlang kleiner oder größerer Flüsse, über Stock und Stein, durch kleine Wälder, vorbei an großen Felsen und über Wiesen mit jeder Menge Kühen, die uns meist verwundert musterten. Und wir haben heute wohl an einem der 100 schönsten Picknick-Plätzen der Welt Rast gemacht. 😍
    Unsere heutige private Herberge ist das Elternhaus des Hospitalieros, gespickt mit jeder Menge alter Bilder seiner Ahnen. Und ich habe ein Himmelbett! Das ist auch nötig, denn morgen werden es wieder über 30 km.

    84. Etappe: Châtelus-le-Marcheix

    September 30 in France

    Zum Sonntag gab es heut eine entspannte Etappe. Zum Glück waren heut nur wenige Straßen auf dem Weg und es ging über viele kleine, ein wenig anspruchsvollere Waldwege immer bergauf. Man könnte fast denken, wir sind im Alpenvorland. 😅
    Ein bisschen mulmig ist es mir heute zwischendurch, als ich einige Schüsse und wildes Hundegebell höre. Wenig später geht es an zahlreichen Jägern vorbei, die 2 Wildschweine erlegt haben. Gut, dass wir erst spät gestartet sind!Read more

  • Day89

    83. Etappe: Bénévent-l'Abbaye

    September 29 in France

    Yes! We did it again! 33,5 km 🎉
    Kaputt, aber glücklich und zufrieden erreichen Lucille und ich unser heutiges Ziel. Zur Belohnung gönnen wir uns heute Wein und leckeres Essen vorgekocht vom örtlichen Fleischer, denn zum Kochen haben wir heute keine Lust mehr. Aber unsere Pilgerherberge heute hat alles um tolles Essen aufzuwärmen.
    Morgen haben wir uns zum Glück nur eine U20-Etappe vorgenommen. 😅

    Gueret

    August 4 in France

    Wow - heute ist Moritz 650km gefahren!
    Vor Fahrtbeginn hat er sich aber beim Auto-Check (den wir vor jeder Fahrt machen) die Krone seines Schneidezahns abgeschlagen.
    Eigentlich wollten wir einen Stop kurz vor Bordeaux machen, da Moritz aber in Fahr-Laune war sind wir dann weiter bis zum nächsten Stop. Nach 10 Stunden Fahrt kommen wir an einem Campingplatz an einem See an. Wir gehen gleich eine Runde schwimmen. Der See ist bachal warm. Zurück am Platz gibt es eine unschöne Überraschung, der Kühlschrank kühlt nicht. Wir stehen wohl zu schräg. Also suchen wir noch einen anderen Platz und parken um. In Deutschland müssen wir das Kühlmittel auffüllen lassen, dann ist es kein Problem mehr, wenn wir leicht schräg stehen.Read more

    Day 21: La Chaumerette - Crozant

    September 2, 2016 in France

    Distance: 18.8 (464.8/1405.5)
    Weather: 30C, sunny and a bit hot
    Mood: Relaxed
    Blisters: 1 (but feet no longer feel tired)
    Staying at: Camping Municipal La Fontbonne

    Letting go...

    A number of people have told me that the camino is very much about letting go and today I realised I am starting to experience this.
    A few days of walking with the "jeunes" I met I learned a different way of walking. Naturally, despite my good intentions I had started planning my days and had felt rather pressured by the heat. If I would get up really early, I could get to the next place early and before the real heat, which to be fair never materialised. This led to a constant monitoring of my speed and at some point even controlling my break lengths. I know... It sounds a bit obsessive now, but the heat had scared me a little when I started to feel nauseous one afternoon.
    I felt I was battling the heat.
    However, these two young guys taught me to just go with the flow of the day, take longer breaks and enjoy the little interactions with the locals (yesterday we met a Belgian sculpturer who showed us his work).
    Today I realise I am learning to let go (a little) of control through planning and timing and it feels great!

    Day 22: Crozant - La Souterraine

    September 3, 2016 in France

    Distance: 24.5 (489.3/1381)
    Weather: 28C, sunny and a bit hot
    Mood: Relaxed
    Blisters: 1
    Staying at: Claudine Montcuit gîte

    The walks are starting to become routine (in a nice way) and also my morning and evening rituals. I'm surprised how easily I adapt to this simple, but physically intense life. Today Richard and I were reunited with Jonas and it was so nice to see a familiar face. He's going back home tomorrow, while we continue our camino. A nice evening at one of my favourite places to stay sofar, camping in the garden of the "tres gentil" mme Montcuit.Read more

    Rückreise Dune la Pastelet

    September 5, 2017 in France

    Erster stopp auf einem Campingplatz in holländischer Hand. Super netter Empfang..... wenig Gäste. Außer uns noch zwei andre Parteien. Sanitäranlagen viel zu wenig für den Platz. Vom Klo müssten wir an dem Pinkelbecken der Männer vorbei.... :-) :-)

    Good morning

    January 1, 2017 in France

    Going to visit a very famous tragic village today in a horrible stark new year taking stock kind of way. There should be no-one there but me today, just to compound the bleakness. Setting off and there's ice all over the van. ❄

    Boussac

    January 1, 2017 in France

    Visiting friends about 15mins away tomorrow so pitched up here for the afternoon and overnight. It's SUPER sunny and it's positively warm in the camper.

    Had a wander over to see the castle. It's pretty and has got a weird slanted roof on the tower. It's inhabited.

    Also saw an interesting red brick water tower, and a weird corrugated iron tower, no idea what it's for.

    Getting suspicious looks from the locals because I'm wandering around apparently aimlessly! I'm wearing far too many layers, Oradour was cold this morning but here it's so sunny it's cheered me right up.

    There were so many cool things on the way, lots of different birds of prey on posts and fences by the road, a heron in a field of Charolais cows, frozen ponds, a cat doing its thing having a wander, crazy posh houses with massive grounds with statues in them, and a Citroën Diane in a farm yard.

    Going to make some food. Then do some writing and other offline work.
