Europe 2024 – The Pilgrims Way and the Via Francigena

Thank you to everyone for following this blog. You inspire me to reach further in my exploration of our wonderful world!

After completing the Camino Francès in late 2022, which I blogged about here, I researched more ancient pilgrimage paths in Europe and discovered two that have origins even older than Christendom.

Today, 5 April 2024, I will travel to Winchester, England to set out tomorrow on my most ambitious trek yet: two weeks on The Pilgrims Way to Canterbury, England, then on to Rome, Italy through France, Switzerland, and Italy via the Via Francigena for the following three months.

The Pilgrims Way, 222 km (138 miles)

Via Francigena, ≈2,000 km (=1,243 miles)

I plan to blog about the trip here, but it won’t be until after I return home later this summer. If you are interested in following along with my realtime reports from the path, please join me in my “mini-blog” via a Group Chat in the WhatsApp app.
