Paris Walking

Well, I haven’t been reporting here about hiking the Cathy Fromme Prairie Trail because I am in France.  Though I am coming home tomorrow night, and will get back into all of my routines in Colorado, walking the Paris streets and bridges substitutes quite nicely as a training exercise.

One of the many exquisite bridges over the River Seine . . .

As we leave the Hotel Muguet each morning, my pedometer is clipped to my pocket, and I clock our miles every day. I am proud to say that since we arrived in Paris on the train from Provence, I’ve walked more than 50 miles.  Today alone, two other travelers, Etta and Anne, accompanied me for a distance of nearly nine miles.  It seems to be no effort to walk along the Seine, toward Notre Dame, St. Chappelle, the Latin Quarter, the Mouffetard Market.

And every time I climb those steep stone steps at one of Paris’ exquisite historical buildings, I remind myself that this will be nothing compared with the Camino!
