I arrived in Martigny mid-afternoon after a fairly straightforward 4.5 hour stroll from Saint-Marice, where I spent a lovely evening with the Augustian community at their abbey in the town. Its claim to fame is that it is the oldest continuously functioning abbey in the western world, having been founded in 515AD. The basilica has had to be rebuilt a few times owing to rockfalls from the mountain behind it, but I was reassured that it ...

I'm thinking of a jazzy title for this entry.

For example, the guide states the following about a stage I'll encounter within the next three days: "...the route takes to a narrow track on the precipitous hill sides high above the river.

This was another short day for us, only 4 or 5 hours. This was a valley walk up to Champex lake, and for some reason we thought we had arrived at our home for the night but were mistaken. After some hot chocolates in town, by the lake, our guide again had us up and going for another hour of uphill climbing, to stay at Relais ...
