In September of 2017, I walked the Via Francigena from Acquapendente, Italy to Rome. I returned to Italy in March of 2018 to walk from Siena to Acquapendente. I walked on the I traveled alone and averaged walking approximately 12 miles (20 km) per day.
Like the Via Francigena Study subjects, I felt very safe traveling alone and found that the experience exceeded my expectations.
This section of the website included photos from my journey. I intended to post every day while I was on the Via Francigena; however, exhaustion, frustration with posting on an iPhone, and poor WiFi service altered my plan. Now, back in North Carolina, I reflect on my time on the Via Francigena. This section contains photos from my two journeys, well as historical perspectives on the sites and activities I experienced.
