In a few days we will fly to Paris, take a train to Agen and Allison, our host, will bring us to her lovely B&B. It is exciting to go back to the same place in which we finished our second stage. Last time it was summer and the fields were brown and yellow. Now the weather will be cooler and the colors different.
This time we hope to walk 350 km- starting from Auvillar and walk to the Pyrenees in the hope to pass through Napoleon’s path to Spain.
Are we ready to the challenge? I hope that we are. We have 17 walking days and two days to rest. Will it be enough?
Both of us feel that we want to start walking again. It’s a different feeling in each stage. This time it’s like going to meet an old friend- we know the GR65, we know our abilities, and we are ready to embrace the journey with it’s unknown moments.
Here is our plan:
Day 1 : Auvillar – Miradoux 17 km
Day 2 :Miradoux- Lectoure 15.5 km
Day 3 : Lectoure – la romieu 18.5 km
Day 4 : la romieu- condom 13.5 km
Day 5 : Condom- Montréal-du-Gers 16.5 km
Day 6 : Montréal-du-Gers – Eauze 17 km
Day 7: Eauze – Nogaro 21 km
Day 8: Nogaro – Barcelonne du Gers 25 km
