I have enjoyed following your trip. Well done, it looks like a good walk.
We start ours holiday to France on Friday, but only for a couple of weeks. I am exchanging the “Col de Shallow Hill” for some real climbs in the Pyrenees.

I do not aspire to foreign adventure (not least because my passport is expired, last used for our honeymoon in Malta 1994 and still in my maiden name!) but I have really enjoyed reading about your adventures and Chantel and Joel's enchanting comments. Wonderful.

A magnificent trip and i never got bitten once. Well done Martin not just on the walk but maintaining the high std of blogging.
You must be feeling very fit now. We won’t be able to keep up with you.

Thanks for all those comments. I still have to write up the final day!
Don't worry Alan, I'll wait for you, and anyway I've got used to moving at a rather sedate 'long holiday pace'.
I too have enjoyed Chantal and Joel's comments, Louise, which I hope will continue to entertain these pages from time to time.

Hi Martin - Congratulations, especially as you made this an individual route, not just following the established GR10. I'm sorry I lost touch with you over the latter part being off on my own travels for the last couple of weeks struggling to keep all the tech charged up and generally fending for myself.

That was a great achievement which you will always be able to look back on with immense satisfaction .Well done.

Many congratulations on reaching the Med! I've enjoyed reading your posts from the Pyrenees for the last couple of months :-)

Thank you Louise for your lovely appreciation...

and now, I wonder : Martin, you sent à 08:14 your message from "Brasserie de la Gare - Perpignan"
>> hé hé hé already drinking a fresh beer ? or delicious local wines "Banyuls" or "Muscat" ???

We can say that you deserve them 3 !!! so : "santé" (as we say in France)
but not too much > be carefull with the Customs officers if you..."hips" !
