At the moment all is organised except getting from Cahors at the end of the walk back to Rodez for the flight. Now, I’ve been told that there’s one bus at 3.00 so if we get that, the flight is long gone especially as it takes over 2 hours!! Teresa has been given so other information, although as I write, I’m not sure what. Fingers crossed. I’ve been told that we need to go the night before but of course we can’t and I suppose had we known this, we could have booked an extra day but too late now [...]

If I close my eyes, I’m back there, enjoying a beer in the sun just like Teresa below.

You can’t book tickets until 90 days before you travel but that also means that you can’t [...]
World Walks - http://www.worldwalks.com/france.aspx have confirmed dates etc and deposit is paid but both Teresa and I are finding organising the travel a nightmare and it’s amazing how quickly you forget as Teresa has just reminded me that this is exactly what happened last time. The trip on Eurostar to Paris is fine but getting South to our destination takes both a long time and is very expensive and at the moment the timetables we want aren’t up. The other option is flying to Rodez which is what we did last time and it’s looking likely again, just need to [...]
