VIA FRANCIGENA | Day 21

Orges to Villiers-sur-Suize, 26 km

One minute update

 

Full episode

 

The morning started with dry clothes and a good breakfast before exploring the mill. And what a magical place it was. The highlight of the trip thus far. Built in the year 1260 and renovated in 1909. It’s the only mill left in France dedicated to handcrafting artificial flowers for fashion shows. Their most prominent client, Chanel!

And so I was back on the road with a mild fever. It was a soda at a bar and water at a cemetery next to the church. A trick I learned the night before. The forest gave way to expanding agriculture fields with no shade in sight.

Visited the abandoned Abbey at Mormant built by the Knight's Templars and had lunch at a bench in the farming town of Leffonds, where a kind lady gave me a cold bottle of water.

 

It was so hot the asphalt started to melt beneath my feet.

A tiny chapel welcomed me to Villiers where thanks to my dear friend Ibra’s donation I settled in at the hotel. Dinner was all around fish, and I book my next day’s accommodation. I said goodnight to a flock of geese and called It a day.
