At this time of year, there are always a lot of blogs discussing this area as people are on vacation or new students write blogs for family, etc. Some of them have good info about travel, restaurants, hotels, etc.

A few current ones :

I've revised the blog index at www.the-languedoc-page.com/articles/lan ... les01d.htm

I've added several new blogs, moved a few away, changed the order of others, and uploaded the new list.

Sadly Romke at http://frogsmoke.com has decided to stop keeping his blog as he will be too busy moving house, renovating, getting FT and EDF connected, etc. This is/was a fascinating blog. I don't know how long it will stay online - so check it out before it goes.

Thanks for mentioning this. The walk, of about 2000 kms, is to raise funds for Pancreatic Cancer research.

I aim to arrive at the house where I was born, 70 years after that event, setting off from the house where I now live, in the Pyrenees.

Hi Anne

Those are the reports of the local contributors to ML. In the past, they would phone in news items. You can search for them here :
