Balance paid

The balance of the trip is paid and Chris, Teresa and I talked about this walking adventure as we made our way along the Grand Union Canal yesterday. Little did we know as we walked, that the weather in the UK is currently better than that of the southern part of France and Spain where the Camino goes.

Really looking forward to showing Chris around Conques, such a pretty place. Only taxis to [...]

It’s booked

At last, it’s booked. We’re flying to and from Rodez. It’s the quickest way and means we arrive in plenty of time for Christine to explore the beautiful Conques before we have to head out the next morning.

This time we revisit Conques and start from there with the knowledge that it’s a little down hill into the valley and then a slog up to the chapel where we can ring the bell – looking forward to that. Looking forward too to some wonderful warm and sunny weather to get those legs tanned. Teresa and I had such a [...]
