La vie est belle


Daniel and Luce had paid us a visit in Paris. They had been accompanied from the St James Tower on a fine Easter Sunday. From Tours we received good news. Now they are over the Landes. From Pons they sent a picture that will remind you something. This is what they say about their camino experience :  



At Poitiers : "We totalize today four hundred kilometres. We walked on a 1400 years old Roman Road and surprisingly we did not meet Astérix !!! (A French comic hero).




Yesterday was the worst day : wind, wind, rain, hail, wind, wind but la vie est belle.
We go on !"


 From the Landes :

"We got to Taller today, our thirty-third stop, with over 850 kilometres (ca. 530 miles)in our shoes.





For a few days we have had temperatures up to  35 degrees celsius and a lot of sunshine. No shade, as we were walking across the Landes Region where millions of trees were pulled down by a storm in 2009. Desolated and desert.


The encounters are very interesting, either with other pilgrims or with the hosts who accomodate us.


Four more nights and we'll reach St. Jean-Pied-de Port, and Spain.


The blisters and other physical difficulties are virtually gone,  la vie est belle, and we walk an average 


25 kilometres (ca.16 miles) a day."
