A nice easy walk from Perpignan today. Sometimes it can be very tricky getting on the right small road leaving a city. Today, no problem. I walked to la Boulou easily.
It is nice to be heading towards hills again. These ones are extra special as they signify the French-Spanish border.
I left the quiet country road about 4km out from the town and joined a main road to take me in. About 3km down I met Sandra and Byron my friends from home. Byron was also my biology teacher at school and a huge influence for me. These days he spends his time relaxing, doing whatever he wants and giving his long suffering wife a hard time! They are wonderful people and fantastic hosts. It was so nice to just sit and chat. We covered everything from Rugby to Hiroshima!
