At the bottom of each post there is the word "comments". If you click on it you will see comments made by followers, and if you follow the instructions you may also comment and I always welcome that. I have found many people overlook this part of the blog which is often more interesting than the original post!

My blog nick-name is SIR HUGH. I'm not from the aristocracy - my middle name is Hugh which relates to the list of 282 hills in Scotland compiled by Sir Hugh Munro in 1891. I climbed my last one (Sgurr Mor) on 28th June 2009

Day 1

A good start the airport wouldn't let me take my gas stove (there were no cylinders, just the Pocket Rocket).Then therre was a one and ahalf hour delay on tthe flight. In Carcassone I had to get an eleven pound taxi ride out of town to go and buy a new gas stove so I didn't get walking on the Canal du Midi out of C until 4.15.i I was told some people on a big barge would do chambbre d'hôte but theft didn't, they were Dutch and just renting the boat, but as always they are great people and they gave me a lift in their car to this village which is about three miles off my route which I will have to walk back on tomorrow.
