A quick photo from the train …. Finally on my way. I have just had two days in Paris … A great meal at le clarisse rue surcouf in the 7th. I just went wandering and found it. It was empty as it was a long weekend in Paris and every one was out of town which was great for me. Great little hotel … 7eiffel …Very small room but very quiet and central … Everything a traveller could want nearby … A clean laundromat, a Carrefour, boulangerie, a sncf boutique where I purchased my train ticket (always wary of train stations … Great place to get mugged or robbed) so that took the drama out of it, and a good restaurant.
This morning I headed off with my bag and backpack and spotted a great market that was set up around the corner. I wish I had of had time to wonder .
So now I am sitting on the upper deck of a high speed train heading to le puy. I am excited and nervous at the same time. Excited to be starting an adventure but nervous about the walk. My backpack is a tad too heavy, so am I!!! Ha! Knees aren’t too bad but haven’t tried an incline yet.
I finally did some serious research Friday and discovered that the weather isn’t going to be great. As I will be climbing into the mountains there is a high chance of rain and a lot of wind … Creating a wind chill factor of -2. Hadn’t planned on that. So bought some wet weather pants and threw in two woollen tops. I will do more research in le puy before I leave to see if I need to buy a gortex jacket … Really don’t want to though.
