VIA FRANCIGENA | Day 18
le-meix-Tiercelin to Brienne-le-Château, 31.5 km
One minute update
The Romans really knew how to draw a straight line on the sand. I walked under half a moon with half my eyelids closed until a sign in the middle of the road gave me a boost of confidence or sheer terror.
I came by a Mexican standoff between two classics and found a few more encouraging signs. What I did not see was an open bar for the second day in a row. Town after town was more of the same.
I finally made it to Brienne-le-chateau around 2 pm, a wreck, dehydrate and with half a liter of water left. I stormed into a café and gulped four litters of water and soda in one sitting. No google translate was needed.
My first choice of hotel was permanently closed, but I found a room at Hotel Les Voyageurs thanks to John Human.
I devoured my dinner; no excuses were made. Clothes and shoes were adequately washed, and I booked my next day's accommodation.
