As the name suggests, the route follows the foothills, so I can expect lots of ups and downs, a good reason for travelling as light as possible. It passes through a couple of well known towns, Carcassonne and Lourdes. I am looking forward to the former, if not the latter.
Sorry about the blurred map at the top of the web page. If I find a better one I will post it.
I am arriving in Paris on June 5, spending the night with my good friends Paul and Michelle in Lyon, taking an early train to Montpellier on the morning of the sixth, and then walking.
