The Way of Saint Francis: Training Begins

I stopped for a quick photo this morning as Reg and I neared the top of the 500 foot climb behind our home.

With our upcoming Italian pilgrimage (The Way of Saint Francis) just around the corner, today seemed like a good day to reacquaint ourselves with our backpacks. If the weather cooperates, we should have a couple months to work out any kinks!

    So excited for the two of you. I’ll have to look this trip up and live vicariously through you. There is so much to do in this life I will never fit it all in. Life is a great BIG adventure. Happy trails, Lori

    In a class I’m going to teach at OLLI, I intend to mention you two as seekers of adventure. The class is titled: “The Adventure of Bicycling Touring with an Electric Assist.”

    So when does this happen? I can’t wait to retire to restart our adventures. Working sure gets in the way of fun!

    We will be heading up to OR again in late spring/early summer. Hope we can commiserate again. Cheers!

    Your adventures start again. Great. The Way of St Francis. I have now checked this out, 550km long !! Look forward to following your trip.

    Our best wishes for your training and for the walk later in the year……..but I am concerned the Pope will not bake you a cake!!
    We will be following you!! C&B x


    • Ha, I’d like to think the Pope would greet us with a heavenly plate of Angel Food cake, but I suspect we will have to be satisfied with a celebratory glass of Chianti instead!
