Due to all the rain and the paths through the woods being really muddy, we take the cycling path from Villafranca to Aulla. It’s like being in the rain forest. 367 more words

Day 29: Pontremoli to Villafranca in Lunigiana

Today it rained. That’s really all I have to say. The thing with rain on a pilgrimage/hike is that not only are you getting very wet (which s***s) but you also kind of constantly look down. 400 more words

Day 27: Cassio to Passo della Cisa

Apparently in the Italian mountains it’s impossible to have any internet connection. I’m very sorry. Quite some catching up to do.

Day 25: Costamezzana to Fornovo di Taro
