Why so far? Well the pilgrimage has become very difficult from a reservation perspective...in the last day or so we have heard from Gites that are normally open...closed too cold, not open due to having a meeting that night, no meals at this time. So...we pushed ourselves to walk to Aire-sur-l'Adour.
Last night's supper was so poor I don't even have pictures...so so soup, ham slice, macaroni and cheese that was tasteless and a ball of glue. Not a French cuisine highlight...I give the Bar Restaurant Michele a do not go rating.
I walked strongly for the first 12 kms or so, poorly for the next 12 kms as my legs were simply not driving forward. After lunch I got a second wind and walked strongly for the last dozen kms.
Tomorrow...same story...planning to go 32 kms or my 3rd straight day over 30 kms. I told Georges and Cyrille that I am willing to give it my best shot however if I feel weak I will cut out early...that would be the end of our walking together and that would be sad. Tonight I will make sure that we exchange addresses.
Today wasn't much from a scenic perspective...however a few pictures from the day...
Lunch was a welcome and saving experience for me!
|Yes a chocolate bar...I shared!|
|WW1 - Aire-sur-l'Adour where 117 soldiers died|
We are in the hotel Chez Alzhumat which is a little more expensive at 44 euros demi pension...however the room is really a nice one. I am sharing the room with Cyrille and Georges is with Jean-Michel from Switzerland.
I recommend this hebergement assuming you are willing to spend a few extra euros...not much choice everything else is closed!
