Day 3 of the Via Francigena

Aosta to Nus

11.3 miles. It felt like we walked a slight incline all day with a steep quick drop at the end. Come to find out we climbed 1200 feet and descended 1500. Funny how our minds work.

Our legs hurt like hell but that’s a given so I won’t talk about it anymore. Each day the legs will get better and then the accumulation of miles will make our feet hurt. It has to be that way so we appreciate the beauty that surrounds us.

We crack each other up when we see the other use the stairs or sit or stand.“When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.” ~ Ansel Adams

Roxanne’s post and photos:

Bill and Paige lit up our imaginations with the idea to explore a country slowly step by step. After two years planning, recovery from two operations, and selling all household trinkets we are mind, body and pocket-book ready to walk to Rome on the Via Francigena.

    Chappie, you and your people look strong even though the video shows your legs probably felt like spaghetti. Beautiful country. Stay strong and keep on trucking
