Nearly at Conques

Well, I am nearly in Conques- just 17km away! I hope I get a chance to stay in the monastery this time, but what will be will be...

The weather has been warm the last couple of days, but not too hot. When I crossed Aubrac the weather was just superb both days- views were just amazing. Quite hot though. I could hardly believe it after last time!

Have met lots of really nice people. Last night there were two Hungarian men who are living in Holland- and they have walked from Holland. They had some stories to tell and we laughed and laughed.

Catch you another time!


  1. Margaret,

    May the good weather and happy laughter continue. Give my regards to Conques; the abbey church of Sainte Foy is one of my most favorite structures in France.

  3. Good luck with Conques.. staying at the Abbey was one of the highlights for me. Hope your feet are holding up well.

  4. Je te souhaite de pouvoir arrêter à Conques. Je suis vraiment tombée en amour avec ce lieu. Nous avons même participé aux prières du midi dans une atmosphère recueillie, je rêverais d'y arriver comme toi comme pèlerine. Peut-être un jour...

  5. Je crois que nous avons tous et toutes eu une expérience extraordinaire à Conques. Je suis allée la première fois avec mon conjoint et mon fils en novembre 1985, c'était brumeux, il avait peu de gens et une chorale qui pratiquait à l'Abbaye. Mon expérience comme pèlerine était très différente et aussi émotionnelle.
