... Jorvick Viking Centre, the York Minister, walked around the York Wall and had dinner in the Guy Fawkes Pub (it was the old home where GF was born). Now we are Friday and went to the National Railway Museum and onto my Cousin Victoria's Home for the evening. What a great great evening. It's now Saturday and we went onto Aunty Chris and Neville's home for the rest of our stay. We went to a talk that Neville gave to a Church Group ...

Luckily we are here for a few more months yet.While Chamonix is a fantastic location, it sadly lacks a dedicated food market, where the local producers assemble together 5 or 6 days a week to offer their wares.

I've done better than I expected for accommodation costs in Switzerland so far, thanks to staying initially in a shared room in a private home and then youth hostelling in Lausanne and ...
... as it gives me a chance to get my washing dry. Usually when camping in the wet there is just no way to get anything dried out. Had a Thai meal tonight. No real alternative restaurant open as its a Sunday. Not bad though.
Slightly concerned about tomorrow's walk. Both books describe it as the most difficult of the whole walk. Not recommended in the wet or when on your own or with a heavy rucksack. Strike three as the saying ...
