How do I listen to the commentaries and move from one place to another ?
The MP3 file has a total of 28 tracks : the first includes an introduction to your walk (whatever your point of departure), while the other 27 relate to places of interest dotted along the route and numbered on the plan.
Each track linked to a place of interest consists of two parts, one is a commentary of about 2 minutes on the place, and the other one is detailed instructions telling you how to get to the next place. At the end of each commentary a signal tells you that you can continue your walk by following the next set of instructions.
In the same way, another signal at the end of each set of instructions tells you that you have to stop in order to enjoy the next commentary. When two places are a long way apart and it is diffi cult to remember the instructions in one go, there are gaps between each of the sentences, which gives you time to push the “Pause” button.
