We are here at Conques!!! A 22 km walk, and not particularly demanding, now that we realise that there is no flatness anywhere round here...just hills and mountains in every direction. We left at 7.45, a record early for us, as we wanted to get as far as possible before the bad weather hit. And it was beautiful walking weather - cool enough, cloudy but so far high enough not to be threatening. So we ...
Another gorgeous but not too strenuous day - about 13 kms. We started off along the river, flat country road, for several kms which was a nice gentle way to begin. Then we dive into the hillside and had one of those endlessly uphill sections (we had read the book and had been warned!) but once we were up in the hills, it was of course the usual stunning views in every direction, but also we stayed high for the rest of the walk. A bit of undulation of course, but lots ...

And we are staying in the Hotel de France, right in the centre next to Le Mairie, and now that we have showered and washed feel like new people, even if tired ones! Our total ...
... far - everything worked easily - water pressure and temperature!!! In winter it is very snowy round here by the look of post cards and photos round the place. And a skiing area too....hard to imagine now. Dinner here in the hotel. Should be good, very friendly people. People always ask where we come from and it is always good to be Australian! Much preferable than English in French eyes!!! And they are always amazed at how far we have ...
