Memories of France #1

A travel blog entry by jamesonthevf201


Without a shadow of doubt, my most abiding memory of the French leg of my Via Francigena is of the Commonwealth War Graves I passed by and stayed a while on my journey through northern France. I knew this would be a poignant experience, not least because 2014 is the centenary of the start of the Great War.

As it happens, the first few graves were of airmen from WW2. I saw small clusters of military headstones in village graveyards which were probably the nearest ...

A trees difficile jour.

My route took almost 9.5 hours to complete today. I'm not sure it was a particularly long distance, but it sure presented a number of challenges to me.

First, I had to climb out of the Valle de La Loue. This meant following a narrow, winding path through woodland that often had the look and feel of a tropicmoBoainforest. My clothing became quite saturated with moisture, some of which was the result of negotiating little waterfalls that ...

I tried to resist, but I'm glad I relented.

... I just had to get on with it.

After a short while, a car pulled up alongside me and the female driver beckoned me over to speak with her. The gist of the conversation was that the road I was on was too dangerous for walkers and that I should be following the official VF trail, which she indicated to be somewhere over to my left.

... looking to make an arrest for vagrancy, but thankfully the real purpose was much more benign.

Well, it's past midnight now in my delightful airbnb lodgings and I'm going to have a good sleep to make up for last night. It's also a rest day for me, so I'll do a few touristic things, along with some Phase II planning. I also intend to post a few unnecessary things home. Rest day? I'm not so sure !!

... public museum in France, (established in 1694, nearly a century before the Louvre became a public museum) is closed until 2017 for renovations. It apparently has a great collection of paintings from the 14th to the 20th C. including my favourites, Matisse and Bonnard, as well as Renoir, Goya and Titan to name only a few. It also has a large collection of drawings and an archeological collection.
