Having cut my Camino teeth on the leaf-shaped first stretch of the Via Lemovicensis, starting in Vezelay in 2011, I had always wanted to visit again to take a different route. With a number of Airbnb and Couchsurfing guests visiting from the south of France, my interest in this area grew. I mean everyone raves about the south of France don’t they? Up until now the draw to France had always been to the North and Lyon was as far south as I had ventured.
But now, with some interesting endings happening in my career and possibly some stars aligning in a new way, I realise it is now time to go a different way of St James – the stomping-ground of Eleanor, the searching switchbacks of the Tour de France and some of the most dramatic French countryside – home of Van Gogh’s sunflowers. Last trip was en velo, this trip will be à pied.
