Day 25 Blessonville to Marac 24K
Day 26 Marac to Torcenay 31K
From Blessonville we walked on historical route road 8k to Richebourg and then veered right into a forest on the VF for a nice walk to Mormant and Templar abbey.
Final stretch is historical route which closes with another forest walk and then a 2k stretch on a road into Marac where Mika was welcomed by some friendly locals.
The hospitality we received from the kind and friendly host Elisabeth was over the top.
She provided cold drinks, tea and 3 wonderful meals in her cozy home. And great conversation. I normally don’t post pictures of an entire meal but this is a good example of a wonderful 4 course French country supper.

She also helped us with reservations ahead for two days. A real friend of the pilgrims. We walked to the local church.
Elisabeth took us with key to old castle tower, an abode for 3,000 pigeons to lay eggs in medieval times.
The walk the following day to Torcenay took us through the hilltop city of Langres with one more beautiful cathedral.
Then a long stretch following VF to canal.
Then veering south using Maps.me going through Chatenay-Macheron to Torcenay where we were welcomed by Sylvie and her husband Jean-Louis for another delightful homestay with a delicious dinner.
