A 25 day walk made up of two parts.

We started with a 6 day, 120 km walk in High Provence from Saint-André-les-Alpes by way of Castellane, Moustiers-Sainte-Marie and Riez to Gréoux-les-Bains.

This was followed by a 19 day, 460 km walk on the GR65 (The Way of Saint-Jacques or the Pilgrims’ Way) starting at le Puy-en-Velay.

We made a deviation down the river Célé on the GR651, from Béduer to Saint-Cirq-Lapopie, rejoined the main Pilgrim’s Way at Cahors and went on to Moissac.
