    Hello Mick...I`ve been reading your post about the file of the Canterbury to Besancon route and have had the problem you had of finding the route files being the same...can you send the correct file to my email please ?

    My email is - - I`m hoping to set off on the full journey on foot sometime in July.

      Jessica, My husband and I will be walking at that time. We are flying into Venice and will spend a few days there to get over the jet lag and to see the city. From there we will visit a friend in Milan before heading to the San Bernardo Pass. Hopefully, we will see you on the Via.

    Hello everyone, would you be able to tell me where to get pilgrims credentials. I plan to start from Lausaunne in July. Thank you.
    1. MichaelSG
      I'd recommend joining the Confraternity of Pilgrims to Rome Organization and they will send you a credential. They also have the best list of places to stay.
