Day 3 Part 2


I might not have wi fi for a few days so might as well use it now. I normally never book ahead on my trips but have been advised to do so on this trip. On the gr10 I was very lucky because the French5 booked for me. As you can imagine language is a problem when phoning.
On Stevenson Trail I get the gite that I am in to book a place for me somewhere the following night. Today a problem everywhere for tomorrow Sat night is booked out. I went to tourist office and the only place I could get is in a Monastery. It is in Notre-Dame des Neiges, I will have to go off route to get there. It is actually on a Pilgrim route to St Jean dear Guard. The only problem I have to be there for 5 to get a key. There is then a communal meal at 7, it is donation. Should be very interesting.
This I think will mean I will jump a bit of the route, will travel on gr 700 instead of Stevenson which is gr70. Then Sunday will re-join Stevenson further on. The result I think I will gain a day. Might now be in Florac on Tue afternoon. Will see.

  1. Have tried to post before ... hope this one gets to you. Well done on the GR10 Dermot. Sounds tough, but within your capabilities. I was hungry thinking of you not getting dinner ... don't know if I could cope!
    Enjoy the rest of it and meeting with friends. Ultreia!
