Has anybody travelled by bus from London Victoria to Le Puy en Velay?
I'm thinking of going to Lyon by coach and then taking to the local bus service - any advice would be gratefully accepted.

I'm struggling with a similar decision,starting from Le Puy in spring next year and don't want to fly, I'm fed up with the restrictions on what I can take on board-knife-nail clippers-nail file-walking staff-liquids the list goes on and on-
so you fly to Lyon and maybe have to stay the night there at 20-30 or more euros and then 28 euros train to Le Puy -tired shattered before I even start-no not for me.
I plan talking my favorite knife ( opinel)-and my Sunday Times wine club corkscrew and a staff still to be chosen-my Camino will start when I close my front door and bus pass in hand set off for the white cliffs of dover-thats as far as the plan goes except to maybe make a formal start from Paris-even if it is the train bus or skateboard-I quite like the idea of a slow organic run up to my walking from Le Puy.
with all the information out there its easy in my opinion to get too organised-understandable if your on a tight schedule but if you have the time----------------------------------------
