... into the Dordogne area. The drive was pleasant until almost at the end when Fanny Anne Sat Nav took me off the reasonably sized road onto a single track affair with grass growing up the middle. It wasn't possible to turn round so I kept going hoping for a way back to the main road - luckily I met no other traffic but eventually entered a village where the road was completely blocked by a van, a lorry and a couple of cars. It turned out they were all friends and ...
Day 36 –
Considering the difficulty I had with the walk yesterday, I was looking forward to a much shorter day today. Because of the short walk, we also got to leave late, with breakfast at 8am.

I again walked with my two new companions today. It was a much better hike as the weather was cooler. The first half of the walk was along a nice, wide, and flat trail that was perfect for hiking. We did the first 12km in a flash. We had hoped to be at Thiviers by noon, and we ended up arriving at 10:30am. So we stopped and had some tea and ice cream at a local café before stopping at a grocery to buy things for lunch. In ...
