Hi carolus
Are yes, the "biting tang of a cold beer at the end of the day". I remember it well.
Wow! A very detailed account indeed, I'll have to have a further read a little later. The reference to the cold beer has distracted me for the moment. I've been looking at the Arles route, so this should provide some valuable information for me.
Thanks
Col

Many thanks for posting. Like Col, I'm having a hard look at the Arles route. I'm vaguely thinking of combining it with the Camino del Norte, which would require a link from Puente to the coast. Does anyone have any ideas?

Anyway, Carolus, your first evening in Arles put me "right there". Now I can't wait.

Many Thanks Carolus for these lines. I could at times almost hear the birds sing in the open air. Lydia

Thanks to you all. Actually, I'm wavering between Geneva to Le Puy and Vezelay to St Jean Pied de Port for my next walk. Any advice?

Thank you Annie. Great tip. This has the advantage of my being able to terminate in Irun and return easily for the second half. (I like to go very slow, you see, and 90 days may not suffice for Arles to Santiago via the Norte - in the event I can't get a visa for long stay.)

What would we do without this forum, its contributors and Ivar?

Wonderful blog! We did that last year, starting a the Italian border, but only made it to Toulouse. We will finish it off someday soon.

Looks like you had a few wrong turns. On these less populated routes it is not hard to get off trail. We had the entire track on a gps in great detail, and did not get lost once. I thought it might take some of the fun out of it, but actually it was really nice, and made the trip more carefree.

Thanks for the write up and pictures!

Hello Carolus,
It seems that I was only a week behind you on your chemin, I started on the 7th April from Arles. I certainly remember the, what to me was, extreme heat when I first started. At least it cooled down a bit. Reading your blog reminded me of the happy times I had plodding through France and Spain (I went all the way to Santiago) either alone or with people I met. Indeed I walked with a French couple all the way from the Somport pass to Santiago, a total of 28 days I think. Good friendships have been made and plenty of good wine and beer drunk. Great fun. Glad you like walking in England. Have you done the Coast to Coast?

Yes, Nicholas. In fact, the Coast to Coast was my first walk, about 15 years ago. Well do I remember that pint at the pub in Robin Hood's Bay. The next year I walked the Pennine Way, and then some of the shorter trails in England, and of course, the West Highland Way. Now I go back to France each year and do one of the chemins de Compostelle. This year I'm walking from Vezelay. I have often thought, though, that it's time to go back and walk the Coast to Cost again, It's the one English walk that I'd like to repeat.

I walked from Arles to Puente la Reina in spring 2011. Here is my blog:

Blog has been removed from blogspot. :(. If you see this post, @carolus, please let me know if there's a new website for it. I'm starting to search for Arles info.
