Today, I walked towards the crux of the Chemin de le puy in France. Aubrac.
Pilgrims I met that are traveling southward i.e. the opposite direction of me informed me of the presence of 50 cm of new snow up ahead on mount Aubrac.
Luckily, they laid first tracks. …
Conques, France, is a jewel. It allows one to step back in history.
The combination of medieval houses and absence of suburban sprawl made my jaw drop in aw.
It is November; and the depth of fall has clearly arrived. It should come to no surprise that wind, heavy rains, and cool temperatures await me as I start on my walk every morning.
The paths which primarily lead through forests and open fields have turned into a muddy mess and I need to navigate numerous tiny streams happily meandering where I am meant to walk.
It’s been terribly wet and windy. And it’s not just a drizzle of wet but torrential rains.
The temperatures are dropping too which makes being wet not exactly fun. As soon as I stop, my body turns to a shivering ice block. (Weird analogy 😀)
I am rather impressed with this gentleman from Japan. I met him at a hostel today.
I was wondering what was up with him as he shuffled about in the kitchen – you know the typical Japanese style of walking 😁😇 …
