Day 4 of the Via Francigena

Aosta to St. Vincent

Last night we stayed at the La Florian Albergo. Fantastic! Florian was a great host. He spoke English and catered to our every needs. The homemade food in the restaurant was unbelievably delicious. The boys loved the local Grappa. Great find!!

Today we walked 15 miles. It took about 9 hours total including lunch, random pee breaks and a 10 minute backtrack.

Today we played word games with town names.

We started in NUS.

Roxanne – I have good Nus….

Darrell – Are you experiencing leg cramps – try roatte.

Paige – If you want to get to the other shore roatte.

Roxanne- Never eat roatte tomatoes.

Chappy: Rovary 🎼🎼🎼 contare 🎼🎼🎼 (think volaire).

Roxanne – When a car is coming move rovarey.

Bill to Roxanne- Don’t turn around you’re going rovarey.

Darrell – The pacifist sheriff took over the old west town and complained no more Nus.

Roxanne – Oley moly big hill.

Bill – There once was a man from Nantucket…

Paige – Take care of that wound or you’ll get grangeon.

Roxanne. GRANGEON.


Chappy – Montcharey is sweet porto.

Paige – A cushioned toilet seat.

Enough of the crazy…

    Sounds like great fun—so creative; how is the “blister situation”? i.m not even walking and I have them. J
