Saint Côme d’Olt – Estaing

The next day was market day in the town. After a brief wander around taking some photographs, I left following the red and white stripes of GR65. The way led me over an old Roman bridge and followed the Lot River for some time. I caught up with Christophe, Marie and Jacques as we entered […]

Nasbinals – Saint Côme d’Olt

Sleep was getting easier and I awoke early and fully rested. I was on my way before eight o’clock. The town was deserted and a local couple said that I was the first person they had seen that morning. Nasbinals is at 1180m and it was cold, about 3 degrees. The way continued upwards across […]

Aumont Aubrac – Nasbinals

I packed the rucksack and headed off to the post office to post the old waterproof kit looking forward to shedding some weight from […]

Saint Privat d’Allier – Saugues

Light rain and cloud started the day. It was a gentle climb up over farmland to the small Chapel of Rochegude. Wonderful views down into the valley below. By now it was brightening up and the soft rain had stopped. The next stage was a steep and rocky descent 350m down through woodland to the […]

Le Puy en Velay – Saint Privat d’Allier

After an early rise, I got to the cathedral for the 7am service. There were about 70 pilgrims, mainly French. Amongst the others there were Belgian, Swiss, Canadian, German and a couple of Brazilian ladies from Recife. There was a short service after which everyone was introduced to each other and to the Bishop of […]
