    Hi David,
    Just found and thoroughly enjoyed your article on the the St James route. You captured the spirit. Beware the moon–ha–sometimes I did feel that way wandering around the Aubrac by myself in the rain 🙂

    • Hi Lori!

      Thanks for your comments. I enjoyed our evening at Domaine Sauvage and hope you gained loads of inspiration and contentment on your journey. I loved every step of it and learned a great deal along the way. Just back from New Zealand afeter a three month stay and have really missed European cultural heritage even though the walks I undertook were truly amazing.

      Hope all is well with you and good luck with your future travels. Keep me informed!

      Best wishes

        Hi David! Sauvage was among the best evenings of my walk. Overall it was an inspirational experience, not without challenges but full of good moments. I’m planning to return next summer for the Cahors–Saint Jean Pied de Port section. I’m definitely hooked on the walking holiday! I imagine it is nice to be home after being gone three months although the scenery and walking trails in New Zealand must be incredible.
        All the best in your future ventures!
