Day 14 of the Via Francigena

Pavia to Belgioioso 12 miles in 5.5 hours.

We have walked 175.6 miles so far.

It took 1 hour and 20 minutes to walk out of city of Pavia. School kids filled the streets. It was great fun watching them full of energy visiting and chit chatting.Neighborhoods.More rice, corn and beans but not prevalent like before. Boy is it flat! There’s not a hill in sight.Most of our walk was on pavement which takes a toll on the body.Belgioioso

What’s the town name? Bill “Bela Lugosi boiled bouillabaisse”.We’re staying at La Locanda Della Pesa an Albergo. Super clean room with two beds and a private bath. I rate it a 9 for the comfortable beds (yup 2 twins) and cleanliness. Bill rated it a 9 because he found a fork on the floor with food on it. Darrell rated it a 7 because it didn’t have air and Chappy gave it a 6 because it doesn’t have WiFi – so he thought… now it’s a 9.

Did you know that Italy has red wine that’s frizzante? That means wine with bubbles and chilled. That means yucky. That means we always forget to ask when we order vino della casa (house wine). That means we drink it anyways.

I rather like bad wine . . . one gets so bored with good wine.

Benjamin Disraeli, Earl of Beaconsfield 1804 – 1881

Darrell tried to swirl the bubbles out.

Paige rates rooms one through ten. If it’s rated six or below, Darrell requests a Paige pillow sniff.Yellow church in San Leonardo

    Okay Paige tell me you bought a pair of the pink high heels and put them in your back pack,,,if not for you than maybe for ME Lol 🙂
    Also you know Chappy needs his WiFi or he might not be a happy camper and you know what that means… double LOL 🙂
    Beautiful fun pictures once again. Flat walking ? Do you like that better or the hills? Flat would seem kinda boring to me maybe just a little… What are your thoughts?
    Been wanting to ask you about your place in Carolina? Were you effected by the storms in anyway?
    Keep having FUN… xoxo
