No Taxis in Tergnier Monsieur
Mon 5 may. Now not sure what blogs have made it and what have not but I hope I left you with the lovely lass at reception in Arras teeing me up with room in hotel at Vermand, 6 km from bapaume for Sat night 3 may. On Sat early I post surplus gear, get french sim and away i go. Get to Vermand in 5 hours easier walk with so much weight gone I feel like a gazelle. No hotel in Vermand sir. WTF after all the trouble i went to to ENSURE a bed. Where is the hotel. In bloody Holnan a further 6 km away. Nothing you say. Not what i said. Anyway off again and find hotel and check in and kill two beers before dinner, dine in hotel resto and go to bed with all well ateotd.
Next am get Patron , el capitano, chief sitting bull to make call in front of me to book room in Tergnier. Off i set next day with customary breakfast two glasses o0f warm water and take apple and orange for lunch. Lovely walk, I am certainly fitter and stronger and with the less weight starting to enjoy rather than labour. Get to Tergnier and , yes, youi guessed it the world turned dark.
