I started from Arles in May 2010 but had to a abandon the walk near Montpellier. Restarting early June 2011 from Montpellier though I shall take a bus to outskirts of the urban sprawl. Has anyone a suggestion as to best place to restart walking?
Previously walked in annual stages, 1/3 weeks at at time, from Le Puy to Santiago. The most wonderful experience, wish it never ended.
Now taking the Arles route hoping to recapture the magic!
On the other hand I could just be trying to stave off mortality!
God be with all who walk 'The Way'
If you don't want to walk across Montpellier, I suggest Grabels as starting point. Have a look at these tips in English http://chemindarles.free.fr/forums/viewtopic.php?id=47 for transportation details (hoping they're still relevant!).
Wish you all the best.
