Today was another day with a mixture of risky busy roads and beautiful country tracks. I travelled with my French fellow pilgrim and we first headed east across the fertile plains and at Fidenza turned south towards the Appenines.

We covered around 29 kilometers and the weather again was beautiful for us.    I’m starting to have interesting conversations in italian with all sorts of  people along the way. One old fellow said he’d use the familiar ‘tu’ with me because I was so young !
