For his tenth birthday, a little Breton asks for a surprising gift: two days of hiking

Augustin Pellan is a fan of walking: he dreams of walking through France. For his birthday, he asked his parents for permission for a two-day trip to the Côtes d’Armor. An elusive gift he will remember.

It was his birthday present: during the Easter holidays, Augustin went for a 30 km walk. For this first two-day adventure, he was accompanied by his mother. They left Plurien to arrive in Dahouët and spent the night in Cap d’Erquy.

This summer, the ten-year-old will complete the next stage: a three-day route, from Dahouët to Saint-Brieuc.

“My dream is to go on foot through France, including the GR34. †

The little boy’s passion for hiking and scenery is infectious: Augustin’s parents are encouraged to take regular outings. On April 13, on the occasion of his 10th birthday, their child invited his friends for a day of hiking. Two adults accompanied them on this trip.

A child who reminds us that luxury is in nature and that being able to enjoy it is the greatest gift!
