​GR 20 Day 12 – The GR 20 Is Done. Finished – September 14, 2017

Refuge d’Paliri to Conca

Distance  13.5 km (8.4 miles) 

As we got lower and closer to Conca the day heated up and got more humid. 


The last bocca….. Bocca d’Usciolu.

We finally got to the paved road and walked to the bar/restaurant that arranges rides to Porto Vecchio. From there busses can be taken to other towns. We were able to join a group for a shuttle leaving in 30 minutes. We got coffee, bananas and chips. The store was out of chocolate croissants which is what I really wanted. 

And just like that we were finished with the GR20 and on our way to being “normal” tourists. 
At Porto Vecchio we got a 3.5 hour bus to Ajaccio. Now we have a rental car (that we can sleep in!) and 6 days to eat our way across Corsica.

    What an interesting journey you just finished – loved going along with you-good weather, bad weather, great food, not so great food – it was all great. Good luck on the rest of your adventure- hope you find some super delicious food.

    Well done, Nancy & Jim. It has been interesting and entertaining walking around Europe with you and Erin, and educational too. I hope you enjoy the rest of your stay on the lovely island of Corsica. It should be a lot less crowded now the schools have gone back.
    I hope I can do as well as you when the time comes.. I’m only a youthful 68 at present

    As Wired says, “You guys rock!”. Hope you are enjoying Corsica as normal tourists now and that Jim’s ankle is getting better.
    We decided to bail on the Dolomites after getting half way through and doing several via ferratas before the weather turned bad. So are enjoying a rental car as well and touring Croatia where luckily the rain has only been at night, and accommodation is so affordable we don’t have to camp in the rain. I can get used to this.
    We are in Pula where the Iron Man triathlon was happening yesterday and we got to see the athletes finish in Pula’s famous Roman amphitheatre. I think Richard is posting photos.
    Have a great rest of your trip and see you back home. Maybe… our Ryan Air flight to the UK may be cancelled. They don’t have enough pilots and have left hundreds of people stranded.
    Take care and thanks for the interesting posts. Patsy
