Cormicy to Reims, 19.9 km

One minute update


Full episode


With a 20 km day ahead I packed up and left at the crack of dawn. The via Francigena signs quickly led me out into the woods. Through some rough terrain up and down a hill.

I was now in Champagne territory. With no breakfast in sight, I dug into my last emergency food rations. Low on water and morale, I booked a room for two nights in Reims thanks to John Hawke’s generous donation.

I am now a full day ahead of schedule.

Once at the hotel I settle in my room, took a much-needed shower and washed my stench-ridden clothes. Tomorrow is a rest day, and it couldn’t have come fast enough.

A quick stroll around town and a visit to the cathedral and I was ready to call it a day.
