    86. Etappe: Time to celebrate!

    October 2, 2018 in France ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Heute gibts ne Menge zu feiern: George hat seine letzte Etappe gemeistert, Lucille ihren ersten freien Tag nach 3 Wochen genossen, ich habe Hugh aus Kent getroffen (Ellis und Hans werden sich erinnern!), der heute auch seinen letzten Camino-Tag hat, ich bin schon 3 Monate unterwegs und habe heute die 2.000 km-Marke geknackt 🎉🎉🎉
    Und deshalb lassen wir heute Abend die Küche Küche sein und gehen ins Restaurant! Denn: Wir sind heute alle in Limoges angekommen, die wohl größte Stadt auf meiner französischen Camino-Route.
    Der Tag startete erst einmal verdammt kalt, bei nur 1 Grad 🙈 Aber die Sonne schien und so wurde es schnell warm. Bevor es in die Großstadt ging, wurde es noch einmal malerisch: ich unterquerte ein Viadukt, durchquerte liebevoll restaurarierte Dörfer und genoss so manch tollen Ausblick.

    Day 25: Chatenet-en-D. - Limoges

    September 6, 2016 in France ⋅ 🌙 23 °C

    Distance: 28.6k (582/1288.3)
    Weather: 27C, periods of sun and clouds
    Mood: Tired but satisfied
    Blisters: 0
    Staying at: Soeurs Franciscaines

    The landscape today was beautiful and the Cathedral of Limoges is just stunning (Which makes the Limousin my favourite part of this journey yet). As my mum said, Limoges is another milestone, which I am proud to reach. I was going to post a little story, but I met a couple from Bornerbroek (very near to where my dad was born).Read more

    La Rochelle-day 2

    February 18, 2017 in France ⋅ ☀️ 12 °C

    Another stellar day in La Rochelle! Corinne gave me the address to her aunt and uncles place to go and say hello. I walked the beautiful park where they had a small zoo and then the beach. I arrived at the Villa Marcotte where Corinne's family lives and rang the bell. With my best French I introduced myself to Michel and told him I came by to say hello and take a couple of photos for Corinne. He said Brigitte was not home and so I shook his hand and left. Went to the beach and enjoyed the sunshine and found a fossilized rock. Found a couple of nice shells to take with me. Walked through town in search of new shoes and found a place with great sales. Bought myself a new pair of fancy running shoes with memory foam for €23.60 (60% discount). Bought myself some duck pate and beautiful baguette made from corn a beer and had my lunch back at the room. Heading to Limoges tomorrow and the bus and train schedules were crazy long and more than I wanted to pay. I booked myself into a blablacar ride, which here in Europe is great because it is private car rides for cheap and then you get to see the countryside. I have a direct trip of 3 hours booked for €17 euros. Christy and I used this from Italy to Budapest for €15 each and it was a 5.5 hour drive. Great optional way to get around!Read more

    February 19, 2017 in France ⋅ 🌙 7 °C

    Caught a blablacar ride this morning with Stephanie and two other girls to Limoges. The ride went quick and I got to see the beautiful country side. It's a nice way to travel. Stephanie spoke French so fast I could only get every fourth word but managed to parlez with her and the other girls. I really had to pay attention and by the time my trip was done my brains were a bit scrambled. I looked around the city for 4 hours and think I've seen everything. It has a really weird vibe here. It is again Sunday and everything is closed including the food stores. Always have to make sure I get groceries for Saturday shopping. Saw the lovely gardens and the city has at least 7 bridges I passed today along the river walk. The Pont de Etienne us where the local women used to wash the linens if the bourgeoisie women until the mid 19th century. Limoges is also world renowned for their porcelain and design. I saw some beautiful pieces in the shop windows today.Read more

    Limoges and off to Lyon tomorrow

    February 20, 2017 in France ⋅ 🌫 8 °C

    Misty morning do a great day to head to the Museum of Resistance. I don't know much about French history except for Normandy so it was a great way to learn their role in WW2. France like Slovakia was inundated with lots of propaganda but France had more of a resistance movement against the government who was siding with the Nazis and a big underground movement. The resistance broke down telecommunications, smuggled and sheltered Jews and bombed nazi establishments. There were a lot of women involved in the movement acting as spies. After liberation the government became communist. The streets names here in France are dedicated to the people of the resistance. I went to visit the gothic seven story St. Etienne church after and it was bitter cold in there. I could actually see my breath. No going to sleep in mass at that church. Booked another blablacar ride for tomorrow with a young student named Louise. She speaks a bit of English so it should be alright. Heading to Lyon and it will be nice to see the countryside.Read more

    September 22, 2019 in France ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Spät am Abend sind wir in unserem Hotel in Limoges eingecheckt. Für nur eine Nacht wollten wir hier bleiben aber für einen kurzen Stadtbummel nahmen wir uns noch Zeit. Vorbei an der Kathdrale und den vielen Porzellangeschäften (für die die Stadt bekannt ist), sahen wir auch eine Bar, die Zirndorfer Bier aus Fürth anbietet ( Partnerstadt). Bei Anki kamen da direkt Heimatgefühle auf. Dann durch die Rue de la Boucherie, die nach den Fleischerei, die diese Straße im Mittelalter säumten benannt ist. Heute stehen hier viele mittelalterliche Fachwerkhäuser und ein kl. Geschichtsmuseum. Außerdem eine winzige Kapelle, die von der Fleischerzunft erhalten wird. Natürlich kehren wir am Abend auch in einem „Fleisch“-Restaurant ein und es gab feine Terrine.Read more

    Du stop pour Nantes

    October 24, 2018 in France ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C

    Je n'ai finalement pas dormi chez ce jeune, faute d'un léger soucis technique : il a eu un accident de moto en rentrant chez lui.
    Je commence donc ma nuit à côté de chez lui, derrière une station de lavage. J'ai été agréablement surpris d'être très confortable !
    Mais après 2 heures de sommeil, j'apprends l'hospitalisation du jeune, je marche donc 40 minutes pour le retrouver à l'hôpital
    Je finis ma nuit à un petit kilomètre de l'hôpital, derrière un Carrefour, dans un coin d'herbe. Je me suis réveillé à 9:30.
    Il est temps de commencer mon stop pour Nantes !


    I did not sleep at this young man's house for lack of a slight technical problem: he had a motorcycle accident when he got home.
    So I start my night next to his home, behind a car wash. I was pleasantly surprised to be very comfortable!
    But after 2 hours of sleep, I learn the hospitalization of the young boy, so I walk 40 minutes to find him in the hospital
    I finish my night a mile from the hospital, behind a Carrefour, in a corner of grass. I woke up at 9:30am.
    Now it's time to go to Nantes!

    October 23, 2018 in France ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    J'arrive vers 16h au sud de Limoges, je marche une petite heure pour rejoindre le centre-ville.
    Je tape la manche à la volée, j'ai gagné un euro et un ticket resto.
    Normalement, le jeune que j'ai rencontré au bar m'offrira le gîte pour la nuit.

    Il n'y a pas de mendiant dans la ville, sûrement une de ces lois anti-mendicité... Je ne vais pas tenté de me prendre une amende aujourd'hui.


    It's 4pm when I get to the south of Limoges, I walk to reach downtown.
    I beg in the street, I'll win an euro and a "restaurant-ticket".
    A young guy I've met in the pub will host me for the night.

    There are no begger in the street, probably one of these "no-begging" laws... I don't want to pay a penalty today.
