Only 16 days until Patrick and I depart for our Italian Cammino pilgrimage along the Via Francigena! There's so much to do at home and work in the next two weeks before we go - hopefully we'll manage. Here's an overall map showing the Via Francigena Route we will be following. Approximately 1000km walking from St Grand Bernard Pass in Switzerland to Rome.
We love the way walking enables us to slow down and really experience the scenery, people, history and architecture. In 2009 we walked the Camino de Santiago across the North of Spain, from St Jean Pied de Port to Santiago de Compostela and then two years ago we walked sections of the Lycian Way in Turkey! http://cultureroutesinturkey.com/c/lycian-way/ both wonderful experiences, sometimes tough going - but so enriching.
We're looking forward to starting our buon cammino Italiano :)
