Nasbinals to Saint-Chély-d’Aubrac


In Nasbinals I spent my last remaining Euros on a spot of semi-luxury lunch, with products from the region:

pate

Campagne bread and pate

Coffee eclair

From now until St. Jean Pied de Port (or perhaps slightly before) I will be in survival mode and living on the hospitality of random people which I meet on my way. I need the fast and I know that it will increase my walking pace and distance covered each day.

I ate my lunch on the steps of the beautiful church:

I also had a chat with some pilgrims whom I met the previous night at the Gite and who were about to head back home as they were just walking the Camino for 4 days:

The path from Nasbinals to Aubrac climbs a few hundred metres, into countryside which reminded me of the north of England and Scotland:

At the top you reach the beautiful little village of Aubrac:

From May 15th the Gite in the village will be open and this is housed in La Tour des Anglais.

The walk downwards from Aubrac to Saint-Chély-d’Aubrac is steep in places. You also need to be careful of the stones which litter the path:

Some pilgrims do unfortunately die on the Camino and Rest In Peace this pilgrim:

I reached Saint-Chély-d’Aubrac about an hour ago and met up by accident with a couple of lovely pilgrims whom Anja and I met in Saint-Privat-d’Allier:

This evening I will sleep here in the village: probably at the church. In the morning I will scramble up some breakfast from somewhere and then continue along my journey.
