Yes it is, indeed! Dave Whitson's podcast is sure to trigger some great memories for those of us who walked it, and whet the appetite for others.A beautiful route
Pelerina, I know you spend a lot of time in France (can't imagine why that is😉). I only had time to take a train from Figeac to visit Rocamadour, but did walk the entire Cele variant. If you've not walked it before, it will be a treat, and if you have, you will love it as much the 2nd time...either way, lucky you to be going back.We will be living on the Chemin du Puy next year - in Lectoure - and plan to walk both the Cele and Rocamadour variants at some stage -
Ohhh, very tempting! It would be so nice to meet you! I can't say "yes", but I won't say "no" either.🤔
Not at all Pelerina,
I walked it with two friends in June 2018...my how the years go by. There were many yellow arrows by then, along with the GR65 blazes, but the GR's are often on both sides of trees. We got accidently "turned around" once because of that and started walking in the opposite direction. Thankfully the sunny day helped us realize we were going wrong after about a half hour!Never saw a yellow arrow, just followed the red and white marks of the GR routes, so familiar in France
I would imagine the infrastructure has changed
Not silly at all Annette. I walked in 2014 - and the path was variously called Via Podiensis, GR 65, Chemin de Saint Jacque de Compostelle, Chemin du Puy, Camino Le Puy. A rose by any other name ... 🌹silly me…I only realised last year that this route was called The Podiensis!….back then, it was The Chemin de St Jacque/GR65.
My wife and I have put off walking this route, just as we put off walking the Portugues, which we finally did three months ago. Next September we start in Le Puy. Thanks for making us aware of this. We just received the Cicerone guidebook.
