Walking Across France

Join the discussion on books and adventure travel.

One of my favorite books about walking is Miles Morland’s A Walk Across France.   Bloomsbury Books, 1992  New York Times review

An out-of-shape British advertising executive and his French wife hoist rucksacks and walk towards the Atlantic Ocean from Gruissan-Plage near Narbonne on the Mediterranean to Capbreton, north of Bayonne, a distance of 553 km.  Their route takes them along country roads and through farm villages.  It’s hot and dusty, but they slake their thirst with lots of wine.
