Another Update from the Trail

August 30, 2017

I’ve made it home. Essentially.


This past Tuesday morning, I hiked to the Le Bono, just next door to my Brittany home base of Baden.

Pointe de Trévignon

I had originally planned to finish this leg of the coast of Brittany on Sunday, August 13th in Lorient, and as of around August 9th or 10th I was quite ready to be done.

But I got a bit of a second wind and I decided to keep going for another week, as day trips from home.

It required some logistical maneuvering–spotting my bike and the rental car–but well worth it to only have to hike one-way and with only a day pack.

The end tally from July 28 through August 22: 435.8 miles/ 701.4 km

I’m not sure when I’ll pick up the trail again, but I will!


I estimate about 8 more days of hiking on the GR34, plus 3 or 4 days of the GR34-39 connector to finish the coast of the Morbihan, plus another week or two of hiking the coastal trails of the remaining islands I’d like to see.

I’m still editing photos from this last trip (I’ve narrowed the original 513 down to 172 and counting….) I’ll post them here as soon as I finish!
