    Hi all. The Nomad's adventure in Umbria has got me thinking of alternatives, but I'm still drawn back to Le Puy, though this time for the Regordane Way. Maybe in the future I could continue on from its end to begin the Way of Arles, but since I'm likely only to have weeks at my disposal...

    Le puy - Conques Fictional Tale on blog

    I'll understand if many ignore and some groan. I've written a little historical/fictional piece as a blog entry. Its setting is the start of the Chemin du Puy and I've included some of my own photos (made sepia for an antique look. Ew!) As far as historical accuracy and consistency go, I'm up...

    Those of us who've tramped the Chemin du Puy, especially in sleet and snow, will have fond memories of aligot. It's the cheesy mashed potato of the Aubrac, prepared differently from town to town, but always involving garlic, spuds and cheese. Recipes usually call for a bit of skill and fuss...

    Blogging My Latest Dawdle

    Hi pilgrims I'm home in the bush, after completing the Frances, as well as taking a wander to Portugal, then back up the coast to Fisterra. No overtaking, of course. Some Korean chick in Carrion tried to fall behind me, but I'm wise to that. My blog is now being gradually extended, for those...

    Decision made

    Hi pilgrims Heaps of reasons against, as usual, but I'm off to finish the Camino Frances, starting from Pamplona late January. The present plan is to extend by walking down the coast to Porto, a reverse Portugues. I've paid fares etc. No pulling back. I'm as nervous as an Australian opening...

    Trigodina truffle farm. Now harvesting.

    Hi all. I know it's a little late in the year for pilgrims, but, for anyone in the vicinity of Cahors, the Trigodina gite and truffle farm are having a boom harvest of truffles. The owner, Remy, has just contacted me and sent photos. I've blogged it here.

    Setting off late March

    Hi all. I'm Rob from Australia. 61 this May. Hoping to leave from Le Puy about March 24 to arrive in St Jean before mid-May. I'll have a light but complete pack. I know I'm starting early, but I'd rather snow than heat, though I train in heat. The experience of a May heat-wave in Siena, when I...
