After months of research and walking all over Brisbane with 10kg in my backpack, sweating like crazy in the high 30 degree weather, we finally left for Italy in March. I’ve spent the last few weeks doing the same thing here in Bologna, but with temperatures 20 to 30 degrees lower ! On Tuesday I’m off to Piacenza to start my walk along the Via Francigena to Rome.
I’m enjoying reading about your trip, Paul. I do hope the blisters improve.
I think a rest day here in Lucca will do a world of good and those colloidal patches are great.
