yes...
We've just watched president Macron tell us that we'll be in lockdown now until December. This hasn't come as a huge surprise.

Details will be announced tomorrow but if there are any pilgrims walking in France at the moment and need help then please get in touch... if we can do anything then we will.

Hi Ivar ! Yes , I sent her the update right after the speech . She is at Colleen’s tonight (@LesBrass).

She will have to make a quick decision. Sunday the latest she must be flying back to Canada or staying in France . She is most welcome to come and stay with me in Brittany

Frances, Norte (twice)and Primitivo, Sureste, In France From home Tours and Vézelay, also Le Puy.
Anyone in France on Tours route or other routes near to Poitiers, let me know if you need help. There is a guest house, small and a bit scruffy but independent.

True pilgrim response, and I am happier as a result of seeing your post, and also Rozenn‘s. Forgive me for a bit of a side track. There is a reputed headstone inscription on a grave in the North of Scotland: Here lies Martin Elginbrod, hae mercy on my soul, Lord God, As I wid dae, were I Lord God, and ye were Martin Elginbrod. So, the meaning? I would also do as you do, if I lived where you live! Take note, any pilgrims stuck in Dublin.

She's currently enjoying a cuppa here with me along with another German Pilgrim... they can stay as long as they need

I just left a comment about it on her Youtube channel, asking what she would do. OK, now I know. I'm sure she will make a wise decision.

News from Sara she sent me a texto this morning She will be flying back to Canada wednesday from Paris
She had been thinking of goin g to a different country to walk but lockdown makes it uncertain

This is very wise. Europe

Thanks Rozenn,

I guess there was no other choice. I hope there are still a few episodes left for her to post on Youtube - I'm following each and every one of her stages!

Personnaly i think this is very wise. Europe and especially France after the terrorist attack in Nice basilica , is not a safe place to be right now
Very deep sadnest all over the country and the fear of new attacks is worse than the one of Coronavirus
We have 40000 churches and chapels ... impossible to protect especially this coming All Saints week end ! Fingers crossed

me too i am thrilled by her hikes and her stamina and her always good mood... such a motivation !!The videos are short, lively with the essential info . My project this winter and coming lockdown (at least 6 weeks!) is to get the skills to be able to videoreport my future Caminos next spring or summer or asp !She has inspired me!!

By Wednesday Sara will know the kilometre around my home very very well... as we're restricted to walking locally. But today we walked to the boulangerie (with our attastation/papers giving us permission) and tomorrow we're walking along some of the GR routes here... the weather is glorious and perfect for walking! it's such a shame we can't walk further!
