Reflections and images from my travels

I am finally back in Bormes July 22nd 2015 and I need to blog! I have accomplished so much over the last 2 weeks but have not had the chance to share it with you. Even though I traveled to Corsica first, I have decided to relate my best of the Robert Louis Stevenson (RLS) trek experiences first. After each day’s hike, I was able to pick and process selected photos and also dictated some notes so I was much more prepared than I was for Corsica. I guess I was just not yet in “blog mode”.  Be patient with me, I promise you will hear all of the tales.

The RLS hike was from July 15-22 2015. The first day July 15 2015 simply involved driving from Bormes to Le Puy-en-Velay with Glenn and Maysan. We spent the afternoon and evening together exploring this historic village and then I was left on my own for my hike week. The hike actually started the following day on July 16 2015. I was driven to the Monastery, which is located about 25 minutes from Le Puy-en-Velay, by taxi. There the adventure started! Read on to find out how things went!
