Great phone signal but international roaming seems to be blocked for outgoing signals in my phone so updates restricted to wifi opportunities which are obviously limited!
ok day 4.
After a grey and drizzly first day the weather has been blue skies and scorching sunburn, with the views getting better and better also.
Camped the first three nights including the photo above, wild camped at 2500m looking across the valley to the peak of mt blanc and its glaciers. it was chilly but beautiful, clear starry skies and solitude.
The trail is popular and it has quickly become tiresome greeting all and sundry with Bonjours, (and now Bonjourno) especially when in all likelihood they aren't even French. Saying that, I have been enjoying the enforced opportunity to practice speaking it.
Onwards to Switzerland tomorrow!
