Hi l walked last year from Lausanne to SBP arrived there 15 th July and lots of snow that night .If we had walked to day after we were told we would have been allowed.From SBP is very nice and lots of mountains.But I have to say the walk from Lausanne is also very interesting.Chrisy
Hi Mutley I'm also planning to walk the Via Francigena next Spring. I'm afraid I can't speak French either though. But trying! I'm in touch with two other ladies who are also planning to walk in the Spring, nothing set stone yet.
I'm also a Brit and have walked two Caminos Camino del Santiago and the Note and like you miss it.
