Old Railways and Hawaiian Food:

Known as the Voie Vert, or Green Way, this stretch of path runs 20 km from Carhaix, north to the centre of Morlaix.

I love a good walk, especially these days, when it’s flat. The ideal location for this is a disused railway line. My good Friend Chris Hayward runs a popular Facebook group called Walking the Disused Railway Lines of Northumberland and the Borders.

So it was with excitement and a doff of my cap to him that I discovered that we have our very own example here. Known as the Voie Vert, or Green Way, this stretch of path runs 20 km from Carhaix, north to the centre of Morlaix. I walked the last three kilometres from a car park known as the Pont Noir, Black Bridge. It was a very pleasant stroll having many encounters with fellow walkers, all of whom greeted me with a polite “bonjour”.

I arrived in Morlaix with a bit of an appetite. Unfortunately, being Monday, most places were closed. I had the choice of a burger joint or O’Tacos, an Irish Mexican chain, by all accounts. Both had student menus on offer and consequently were full of the same. The third option was Le Poke, a weirdly named restaurant/takeaway.

Then I remembered, I’d eaten at a similar place in Pontoise. It was Hawaiian and the food was deliciously fresh. I then had my customary drive to the coast for my dose of the ocean and a beer at the only bar open in all of Brittany.

Speaking of waves…
