Ambonnay to Châlons-en-Champagne, 22.5 km

One minute update


Full episode


With only tuna and peanuts last night I woke up this morning to substantial breakfast. Soon I was out and about.


Gone were the vineyards and was now in the vast agricultural fields of days past. The versa-brella has proven to be a lifesaver keeping me away from the baking sun.


At the village of Vraux I found a closed aviation museum with a collection of world war two fighter planes. it was back to the canal for the remaining of the day walking next to lines of leisure boats waiting to use the automated locks.

Once in Chalon it was a quick visit to the cathedral in search of a stamp for my credential. Found it at the tourist office. I had the best lunch at a nice mom and pop restaurant, and from now on, please, call me "le cubain".


I went to the market to resupply and then washed my clothes at the local laundromat.


Tonight I'm staying at an albergue thanks to my Australian buddy Dion Brown and his donation.
