I woke this morning with joy in my heart…😇
Bar sur Aube is definitely the most beautiful spot so far. I left the city taking photos and loving where I was. The next few villages also scenic. Everything seems to be “a vendre” and shut up.
Thoughtful today. I got into a deep moment. I’d been texting a mate going through tough times back in Sydney when I couldn’t sleep last night. She’s always the smiley one.
Got me thinking.
Nobody made me do this. Maybe it’s not the way I expected.. Well it’s defs not the way I expected.. But. I’m doing it. I’m not really enjoying it yet. Plenty of reasons for that but I’ve got at least another month to tell you all about that.
Anyhoo.. My friend Janice has just had a big op to get some shit cancer cut out of her bones ( secondary from thyroid) now tell me all you God loving friends… You say God created this wonderful planet and then targets some kids and gives them cancer, gives Janice cancer when all she wants is to have babies and live in domestic bliss? I don’t get it, never will.
So , where were we? Ok. The day started nicely thank you… Definitely the most picturesque morning I’ve had… That’s until the shit hit the fan and I spent 3 hours LOST!!
How can a track looking like this….
Today was going to be a nice easy 50kms. I reckon every day I add about 20% distance on with being lost. I hate the book I’m following and will gladly burn it in Switzerland. A 6 km leg that tells you to do 2 km to somewhere, 3.5 km to get to a turn and just do 4 more ks and you’ll be at the next town does not add up to 6! Also, she adds the distances you’re doing….did you know 458 plus 9 equals 457? No wonder I’m lost.
So I’m now in my tent.,Was going to pitch it a few hours ago in the forest where I was walking round in circles, but I was worried that some vicious bambi named “rappel” was going to attack… The signs are everywhere.
Oh.. Yes. It’s raining….
