    Have you been married a long time?

    Such an interesting topic out of the blue. Thanks Kiwi-family. My husband & I will celebrate 40 years next year & I've warned him it's going to cost him plenty!!!! (tongue in cheek) although the laugh maybe on me if travel is still out of question at the end of the year. Interesting though I...

    Le Puy or Not Le Puy?

    Out of 5 Camino's Le Puy is my favourite, I did it solo and with no French language. I found the people extremely helpful, accommodation and food were fabulous.

    We're walking the Arles Camino in May, has anyone had the experience of sleeping bag or not as most of the time we'll be in demi-pensions where sheets and blankets are generally provided. Thanks in advance

    End of day footwear

    I have a pair of lightweight Merrill trainers, 300 grams, that I can wear with stocking socks or warmer socks at night and if needing a break from my boots I can wear during the day. I also take a very lightweight pair of thongs to wear in the showers or to air my feet after a day of walking...

    Janine, I'm one of the old fashioned who still like to feel I've dressed 'nice' for the plane, especially when I travel in Business Class. I do as many have suggested and choose something for my top that I'm no longer wanting but feel dressed up enough in (with boots and walking pants!) that I...

    To save bringing Mascara I have my eye lashes permed and tinted before I travel & voila, eyes look great everyday

    Sock liners?

    For me personally...sock liners & socks gave me blisters. It wasn't until I ditched the liners that I had relief. But in saying that I think it also comes down to the insole in your shoes and how your socked feet sit upon it. What works for one doesn't work for all...its all trial and error

    Thanks for your great Blog Michael, did you go further than Canal du Midi? If so I'd love to see more of your fabulous photos and read more as I'm off to walk the Arles route mid May and its hard to get much info about it. Looks beautiful and sounds challenging.
