The Tro Breizh goes mostly inland, Raggy! How stunning that is I do not know. I walked my version of it 20 years ago, the year the "group" walked the last of the seven weekly stages after theTro Breizh was re-established. I think they had not yet finished the signposting and anyway the number of those who were walking it had grown to over a thousand with accommodation and meals organized in schools and gym halls etc. I prefer to walk alone and love to walk by the sea - so I followed the GR34 from Ploumanac'h to Treguier (St. Tugdual), St. Brieuc and St. Malo, then down via Dol (St. Samson) to Vannes (St. Patern) and Quimper (St. Corentin) and up again to St. Pol de Leon and back on to the GR34 and home. Thus the 600 km became 1000 km, but I had visited the seven saints all the same. During this long walk I conceived the idea of walking to Santiago from home - ten years' gestation! And a very happy result! But that is a different story...Same route as GR 34 – Le sentier des douaniers? That is stunning.
What an adventure indeed! I continued along the French Atlantic coast after walking round Brittany, then the Norte to Santiago and on to the Cap de Finisterre. A fair adventure too. Most satisfying! Would do it again if I had the time...I spent some time between St. Brieuc and St. Malo recently. A little stretch of GR34 was my daily walk. I met a guy in December a couple of years ago, who was walking along the coast with the eventual aim of reaching southern Spain (i.e. walk all the way around Brittany, then join up with the Via Turonesis, and the Camino del Norte, then south through Portugal ... ) He had started in Belgium. What an adventure.
Hi NavyBlue! I have just looked up the thread you indicate. Most informative for anyone thinking of walking the Tro Breizh! Thank you! When looking up the Tro Breizh link however I did not understand why the number of saints was increased to 9, including Rennes and Nantes....
The number of saints/cathedrals has been increased exceptionally to 9, with Rennes and Nantes, to include the whole of the historical Brittanny.When looking up the Tro Breizh link however I did not understand why the number of saints was increased to 9, including Rennes and Nantes....
