The walk to come


It’s cold here up at this altitude – approx 1,000 metres – and last night was -6.
Early morning frost:

This evening just gone was my last night in a Gite before I reach St. Jean Pied de Port and my last night for a while without the snoring which has interrupted all 3 of my previous night’s sleep. My last night because I’m having some more funds sent to be collected when I reach St. Jean Pied de Port, but in the meantime I’m down to my last 40 Euro – by choice – and from here onwards it’s going to be a much more interesting walk in terms of basic daily creature comforts along the way. I need to speed up and I also need the walk to be a bit more challenging. I wrote earlier on my walk of fasting and the time has now come for some personal discipline and to enjoy a period of the walk with a fast; to purify the body and soul.

The main event for me on this Camino is walking the Camino Frances, from St Jean Pied de Port to Santiago and then onto Finisterre, and I need to rush now so that when I do reach St. Jean Pied de Port (approx 690km from here) I then won’t feel that I need to rush and I can then slow down and walk each stage along the way with other pilgrims doing the same and finally relax on the Camino.

The walk ahead passes through the following stages on the way of Le Puy:

Saugues to Le Sauvage
Le Sauvage to Aumont-Aubrac
Aumont-Aubrac to Nasbinals
Nasbinals to Saint-Chély-d’Aubrac
Saint-Chély-d’Aubrac to Saint-Côme-d’Olt

Conques to Decazeville
Decazeville to Figeac
Figeac to Cajarc
Cajarc to Limogne-en-Quercy
Limogne-en-Quercy to Laburgade
Laburgade to Cahors
Cahors to Montcuq
Montcuq to Lauzerte
Lauzerte to Moissac
Moissac to Auvillar
Auvillar to Lectoure
Lectoure to La Romieu
La Romieu to Condom
Condom to Eauze
Eauze to Nogaro
Nogaro to Aire-sur-l’Adour
Aire-sur-l’Adour to Arzacq-Arraziguet
Arzacq-Arraziguet to Arthez-de-Béarn
Arthez-de-Béarn to Navarrenx
Navarrenx to Aroue
Aroue to Ostabat

Time now for some breakfast. Eat it slowly Nev and enjoy what maybe possibly the most decadent breakfast now until St Jean Pied de Port:
