Of course that only applies in the outside world...here we can talk (write) about it until we're blue in the face or our fingers are numb & tingly! 😄

For me, the adventure is about to begin..I fly out tomorrow...YAY!

Best wishes to all undertaking the VF now or later.
Ultreia!

That's great Petro 😊 You'll be ahead of me by about a fortnight...I'm expecting to be around Lucca end of May/start of June. Will be nice knowing you will have 'been there, done that' by then.
Enjoy your walk, take care & Happy Trails!

Thanks for your good wishes everyone..much appreciated. I'll try 'Live From' while on the trail.
Now...just have to get that dreaded long haul flight out of the way... 🤗

Several and counting...
@kazrobbo There's something very striking I think about the people who walk the VF - they get genuinely excited about each others adventures!! I guess it is because of the relatively small numbers, compared to the Camino, where I don't get quite the same feeling, (although we all love to hear what others are doing). I would love to be setting out again tomorrow! Hugely looking forward to hearing how things go for you, (especially at GSB ;)) and wishing you a safe and fulfilling walk. T

Thanks Tim..I'm so excited, I'm quite beside myself! Sooo long researching & planning & now its finally here. All walks are special but I agree there's an extra 'something' when the path is not so well trodden. For me with this one, it's the sheer length, time spent & effort required...I feel very fortunate to be able to do it.
A big thank you Tim for sharing info & your experiences & always taking the time to answer any queries. 👍 😊

Indeed! I used that in my blog in 2016. Where did you find it? I'd love to know its origins.

I took a screenshot from a Via Francigena blog...from 2016...& the writer was from Suffolk...& you're from Suffolk...so now I'm guessing I nicked it from you! 😂 Quo vadis.
I hereby credit this cartoon to you Harington ...where did you find it?
By the many 'likes', its bringing smiles to lots of faces so thank you!

Hi Tassie
Love the humour!
I am walking from Lucca to Rome at the end of April. A little nervous as I am going alone and received advise that it is not a good idea. Do you have a blog or Facebook page where I can follow your camino?

Hi Ell, I have no hesitation about doing the VF solo. I always travel with the attitude 'anything that can happen to me on the trail, can happen to me at home'. Step forward with confidence & you'll be fine! Your starting point of Lucca is prime tourist territory so there will be lots of other people around. You'll be ahead of me (I'll be near the French/Swiss border end of April) but feel free to message me anytime for a bit of reassurance.
I don't do a blog or Facebook but I do send a group email every few weeks. It goes out to a wide range of people (incl a few Forum members) so if you're happy to PM me your email address, I'll add you to the list.
Enjoy planning your VF...you'll be on your way in no time. 😊
