I'm an ex-Regular Australian Army officer intent on walking the Camino Frances over June after a few weeks in Paris and Burgundy. I'll be accompanied by my friend Denise who actually first proposed the trek last year.
My flight to Paris on Air France departs from Brisbane on 15 May via Singapore but only transiting Changi.
I'll be staying in Paris in the 13th District with an old ex-Army friend Reg and then travelling to Burgundy to catch up with friends from my days in Kashmir as a UN Military Observer. Following that the plan is to travel to Bayonne and hence to Saint Jean Pied de Port to start the walk on 1 June.
