Walking 40:00  2.0 mi (20:00 / mi)
Chambord today and some Amboise walking. A few months ago had hoped to jog in the Chambord forest but it didn't turn out that way. It's the largest forest preserve inside a wall in Europe. Tours of it were signed up as well. A three day holiday weekend, 'plan ahead' was called for but couldn't find the crystal ball. Nice evening in Amboise, sunset over the Loire. Anniversary dinner, too.
Walking 1:00:00  3.0 mi (20:00 / mi)
Walking in Briare early, crossed the Loire on the pont canal bridge, birds singing, river humming, everything green & fresh. Returning to Briare after 28 years was special. Later more walking at Chenonceaux. Need to do some jogging but haven't a routine with so much daily change.
Walking 2:00:00  3.5 mi (34:17 / mi)
To St. Chapelle and Notre Dame, then to the Port du Plaisance. Metro back to Eiffel and walk to Hertz for car, exiting Paris on a Friday rush hour.... Hard to escape the gravitational pull of the city. Finally to quiet Briare by the Loire where were found a hostel at 8:45 and dinner served if ordered before 9p. It was 8:57. The countryside is where one resusitates, regroups, regains strength and mental clarity to go forward! Data on the smart phone is essential as well, if not very detailed maps. The latter begins today.
Walking 3:00:00  6.0 mi (30:00 / mi)
Lots of walking, pretty tired well before over. G-maps says 6 miles. To Place de la Concorde, Tuileries Garden, Louvre, Museum d'Orsay and back thru Place du Trocadero for a cold beer. Additionally walked at least a mile in the museum. Out about 11hours, long time standing and perhaps as interesting a city day as one can have.
Walking 2:00:00  4.0 mi (30:00 / mi)
in Paris. Beth & I came here for a 25+ yr followup, long overdue. Flew via
Keflavik which was under low cloud, chill, rain, grim. Flew on to Paris to the return of May. Made our way to the city and first walk was to the Eiffel Tower. Later walked to the Arc de Triomphe and sampled Champs-Elysees, one mighty boulevard. Returned to our flat and that was the end of that - arrival day after the usual challenge to "sleep" on a Trans-At flight as economy. Best of day was watching Les Parisiennes pass by from a sidewalk cafe.
