GR5 Day 1 - The Search for Data

GR5 Day 1 - The Search for Data

Thonon les Bains - Les Chenes

Well we arrived & eventually found our hotel which was not helped by the lack of data signal with our BT roaming. 

Breakfast at the Ibis was an opportunity to acquire some free snacks for the trek, think I underestimated my need for nuttela though. We took a trip down to the the lake for toe dipping - could have been a lot more dipped if I had slipped! We then lost half a day walking back and forth to town to try and get some mobile data sorted, a geek is not happy with no data and I am not happy being lost. Eventually we were sorted with the help of French Orange, Jac deleted some BT profile settings (means nothing time) and a very helpful man who translated the French recharge procedure. 

So after stuffing ourselves with a crock monsieur  with a dash of goats cheese we set off at 3 pm‬ in the sun. After many hours and more forests than we bargained for we pitched up ‪at 9pm‬ in the first piece of flat ground found, we think it was a farmers field but by that point we didn't care and our feet were no longer ours.
