Pilgrimage from Guines to Liques 03/06/07

Today was a much better day...

We started a bit late, 11:00, but i was feeling much healthier than the day before. The walk took us through some national park which was beautiful.

We were once again aiming for around 20kms but it just wasn't to be. My feet started to really hurt after about 12km so when we rocked into this small town with a bar a couple of kms later I was glad to sit down for a beer.....well, it was more like sprawling out on the footpath for three beers, but nobody seemed to mind.

The bar lady informed us that there was a camping site 1km down the road so we decided that would be us.

It turned out to be great. Its the Pommiers des Trois Pays in Liques, run by an extremely friendly local couple, Dennis and Caterine. They built almost the entire park themselves over two years and you can feel that they have put a lot of love into it.

After an awesome dinner we sat round the bar drinking some local French liquor. After a few too many glasses I manged to get the best sleep I have had in a long time. Thanks guys, I hope to see you again sometime :)
