We are continuing our walk on the Camino Vezelay starting from La Souterraine on Sat 13th April. Just wondering if anyone else is out there now or will be soon?

Remember April 14 is the start of Holy Week - get your lodgings booked in advance. Bon chemin!

Yes that is a bit of a worry. We are booked up as far as Limoges apart from the Tuesday night in St Leonard de Noblat when we hope to stay in a municipal which doesn't seem to accept bookings. We were thinking of seeing how we feel when we reach Limoges on Thursday night when we are staying at Francoise d'Assise. We are not keen on booking too far ahead in the early stages of a camino in case of any problems, although we do realise this may not be wise. If all is going well we will probably start making phone calls during the mid week to try to move on from Limoges. It is unfortunate that the Spring is full of bank holidays in France not to mention closed shops on most Sundays and Mondays in any case.

Is there a sport shop in a central area in Vezelay from where I can buy trekking poles before I start off? I plan on taking just cabin baggage and not checked in bag while flying out, so, I cannot take my trekking poles in my cabin baggage,.

Hi Marie

I see that mspath has replied to your question and I am pleased about that. She has walked many caminos and I would not have known where to find the nearest shop of that type. I was just going to say that I did not notice any shops like that in Vezelay. Vezelay is quite a small town really with just a few small shops and restaurants/cafes. There was a nice bakery there I have to say. I don't recall any other types of shops, although I was hoping I didn't miss something and give you the wrong answer!
