In 2016 I set off from home travelling south, walking through my home area of south-east Wales and down through the west country of England. I then took a ferry to Brittany in northern France. There I walked for two weeks on an ancient pilgrimage route called the Tro Breiz. This tour of Brittany is a circular route around the ancient cathedrals of that area of France, all of which trace their history to the early centuries known as the Age of the Saints. What was especially interesting to me was learning about the many connections between Brittany, Wales and the south-west of England and the culture and history that they share.
