From Verrès to Piacenza

Dear friends,

Back on the Via Francigena again we left the Alps and arrived in the valley of the Po. We hiked from Verrès to Piacenza. This time of year we had to deal with lots of insects and heat on the trail.

Unfortunately, some pilgrim hostels were closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We met friendly Italians on the way: Carla from Vercelli, Carlo in Tremello, Brigitte in Mortara, and Maria in Pavia.

God willing Walter will continue his pilgrimage to Jerusalem next month. The next episode will take him to Toscane. Feel free to let us know if you are in the area. Perhaps we can enjoy fellowship and faith together.

We are grateful to God for our safe return in Holland. For pictures of this trip and the route we hiked you can visit Walter’s website.


Aad & Walter
