    Being prepared for the rain 🌧️

    Consider wearing a baseball cap under the hood of your rain jacket - so good for making the hood more affective and helping you see.

    LIVE from the Camino Practical observations from my October 2023 Via Francigena,

    Thanks Bob. Your posts were very helpful and encouraging to me before I left.

    LIVE from the Camino Practical observations from my October 2023 Via Francigena,

    Some well-meant observations, as I sit in the airport heading homeward, very open to your differing perspectives, from my southernmost Liguria to Tuscany to Lazio to Rome stages of the VF pilgrimage: Contrary to warnings received from travel books, while credit cards were not universally...

    Rome! — Oct 27 When we leave in the early morning, the Via Cassia is a very, very busy road with constant traffic. But there are still green growing things and Jim is still in a good mood. After an hour and 33 minutes of walking, just as you’re about to despair, you turn off the Via Cassia and...

    You have to be open to no rest days and doubling up the km that we chose to do. I might suggest starting in Siena, though I loved the week between Lucca and Siena.

    La Storta — Oct 26 It rained all last night, and everything was fresh and bright this morning, as the sun is out for the first time in a few days. The way out of Campagnano goes straight up and straight down a bracing walk each way. Even though the guide book informed us we were walking into...

    Campagnano di Roma — Oct 25 When we left this morning, we had occasional light drizzles. But we saw one tree after another that had been toppled by the storm the day before. The beautiful gravel paths were scarred by little rivets of water. We spent 2 1/2 hours walking to Monteros, and will...

    Our day began with a visit to the simple, sweet Immaculate, Heart of Mary Church on the outskirts of Vetralla. We’re on pilgrimage to the tomb of St. Peter’s and we’re getting fairly close. It just seemed appropriate that we spend the morning discussing him, his brokenness, his hardheadedness...

    Vetralla — Oct 23 Today we had three choices. There is the extraordinarily long route, 42 km to Sutri (out of the question), and a 17 km optional route to Vetrala, with a possible 1.5 km extension to see some Etruscan burial sites and a Roman bridge, which we decided to walk — having done it, I...

    Viterbo, day 2 — Oct 22 On our last rest day before Rome, in Viterbo, we made our way over to the cathedral complex. The cathedral of San Lorenzo was bombed during 1944 during World War II. When it was restored, it was simplified to its original Romanesque style. In its simplicity, it was very...

    Viterbo — Oct 21 This morning’s walk began with the constant, sometimes steep, descent from the city. Just before leaving, though, there was a break in the fog, and we could see lake Bolsena beautifully and clearly. The weather report suggested a 60% chance of rain during the walk, but once...

    Yes, 100 km for the Testimonium at St. Peter’s. The first week of October had large numbers of tourists in Pisa, Lucca, and a week later in Siena. The numbers may be less than a summer crush, but tourist were everywhere. Anecdotally, I’d say 70-75% gravel road or trail, very often well...

    Montefiascone — Oct 20 This morning, first thing, we visited the beautiful Basilica of Santa Christina. It wasn’t as decorated as many Italian churches were, and I think I preferred it for that. It is the burial site of Saint Christina, and also the site of the miracle were in a doubting...

    Bolsena — Oct 20 This morning there was a chance of rain through about 10 AM. So we waterproof everything and headed out. The terrain seems much flatter than what we’ve walked through before. Throughout the morning we walked through harvested grain fields. It was plain, so a good time to be...

    Thanks Mareng! The route was fairly easy until the last 1/4 of the route, and then there were some steep up and downhills.

    Acquapendente, day 2 — Oct 18 Today was curiously different. In the the interest of our aging bodies, today has been a rest day…and it has rained pretty steadily, and should again tomorrow, but we’re ready. Having been rained on repeatedly on the Northern Camino, I have the drill down and have...

    Acquapendente — Oct 17 Today started nice and chilly, about 50° which is nippy until after you get started and then it’s really pleasant. The first hour and a half or so of walking was on asphalt on a country road with occasional cars zipping by, as we walked past harvested grain fields. I...

    Ponte a Rigo— Oct 16 Jim and I got our quick breakfast at a bar, which sounds very odd, but is a quite normal way Italians get their morning croissant and espresso, There are two routes from Radicofani to Aquapendente. The traditional shorter, relatively flat route is 25 km, but has a long...
