Randonnée dans les Cévennes ou great holidays.. :)

Just came back from the Center of France (Lozère and Cantal) where I went hiking and camping with some friends...

Most of the time, we did what we call in French "bivouac" or "camping sauvage", which means, we would put our tent in a nice spot...

and we would make a fire, and just cook, drink, talk, play cards and sing around the fire...


Watching the stars, the -full- moon... all alone in complete nature, far from everything... :)

We walked more than a 100 Km in 6 days, we saw great landscapes that were different from one another, and we experienced all kinds of weather, going from snowy days to sunny and hot days...

Walking several kilometers a day, up and down the mountains, with bags of sometimes near 20 kgs or more on our back... we needed to stretch in order not to feel any muscle pain... ;)


Needeless to say, that it was ... absolutely WONDERFUL. I am still amazed by all that we've seen, eaten (miam) and experienced... :)

hey mimi what does bivouac mean in French?

The British army uses it as a term for when you're camping but you don't have to make your own accomodation (you know from mud and leaves) so it probably means the same. It made me smile reading this post, i had forgotten how much fun camping can be.

In fact i'm gonna build a little tent out of sheets in my garden and sleep out there tonight hooray!

By the way if you keep walking long enough you're blisters will actually start to feel good, no seriously they become all tingly and warm its really nice... but they have to be big blisters.
