    Hi Jessica. It was really nice meeting you yesterday at the APOC gathering. Your presentation was good and I appreciate the handout.
    What is the best place to get a credential?

    Hi Jessica. I'm an American that just walked from Canterbury to Rome and was about one week behind you. I first saw your comments at the guest book at Eden Lodge in western France.

    The first week on the Via Francigena was difficult for me as my mind and body were trying to adjust. Seeing your comments at Eden provided me with inspiration. Just wanted to reach out and say thank you.

    Washington DC area.

      Mark, your words bring a lot of emotions to me. Eden was a wonderful stop for me. The VF was all that I wanted it to be. I unfortunately had to return home because of my fathers death. I was so sad to leave for many reasons. I am counting the days to return where I left off in St Croix Switzerland on May 25. Congratulations on your walk!!

    Lucca to Siena 2017. Very hot for walking, but the views were worth it. Roads very dangerous for walking . Stop at La Villa Punto Sosta

    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.
