A 37-day walk in two parts.
We began with a 5-day, 80 km walk in Burgundy starting and ending in Beaune. We passed through Savigny-lès-Beaune, Meursault, Santenay and Nolay.
This was followed by a 32-day, 760 km walk from le Puy-en-Velay through the Cévennes on the Robert Louis Stevenson Trail (GR70), passing over Mont Lozère to Florac.
We then left the GR70, travelling over Mont Aigoual and down via the Cirque de Navacelles to Lodève.
From Lodève we passed through the High
Languedoc to Mazamet before joining the GR653 (the pilgrim Way of Arles) at Dourgne and continuing past Revel to the Canal du Midi and on via Toulouse and Auch to Pau.
For the statistically-inclined, there is a spreadsheet that gives details of this walk.
