In 2013 we were accompanied by our daughter and son-in-law from Le Puy to Figeac. Nelleke wrote a blog post entitled  ‘Flavours of the Camino’ that I would love to share with you: ‘… The Camino was such a surprise to me on so many levels. We had decided to camp most of the way and save our Euro’s so that we were able to afford the odd meal out in a restaurant and spoil ourselves a little. The start was the beautiful quaint town of Le Puy, the area where the Le Puy lentils are from. We camped in a beautiful camp site, walking distance from the centre of town, and my parents stayed in a very cute guest house for pilgrims, just off the town square. We started the evening having drinks on the square where the sound of children laughing filled the air. We found a cosy restaurant in a side alley called L’Ecu d’Or and for 15 Euro we had the choice of Salmon Rilletes, or smoked duck served on Le Puy lentils. Then for the main course we had steak or chicken slowly roasted in red wine. I can’t remember if dessert was on offer (must have been) but the portions were so generous that we didn’t even consider. What a start to the trip!
