Days 27-29: Torcenay to Champlitte to Sevoux to Montboillon:
One important point about this or any pilgrimage is not to be too rigid in your plans. We are growing a bit tired of the relatively flat farmlands since Reims and looking forward to the mountains.
It is difficult realizing that after 4 weeks we are still a week away from Switzerland and 8 weeks from Rome.
However, as with all pilgrimages, typically it are the simple kindnesses from strangers that give you the strength to continue.
We ended up spending two days in Sevoux thanks to our wonderful host, Roger, at Gite Réve.
We could not find an accommodation in Montboillon so he drove us there and we attempted to walk back.
We had no packs and dressed for summer we got caught in a heavy rainstorm with big temperature drop.
We sat at a busstop in Velleclaire wet and cold after just 10K of walking.
Roger came and picked us up and added a delicious hot lunch when we arrived. No charge for the pickups and lunch.
It doesn’t say so on the FFVF accomodation list but I would suggest that Gite Réve in Sevoux is a very friendly pilgrim stop.
