      Kitsambler replied to the thread Post Camino Re-entry.
      I think the shock of re-entry has been going on for centuries. In former times, the pilgrim had to hoof it all the way back home, which afforded considerable time to reflect. These days, we are tempted to just hop on the nearest aircraft and head...

      The climbs up to Sta Gallen and up St Meinrad are the two hard days I remember.

      Quite nice, and much less expensive than Switzerland. As far as Lyon, you are still competing with tourists somewhat but there are gites. The home-stays listed in the "yellow book" from Les Amins tend to be suburban rather than in the heart of...
