VIA FRANCIGENA | Day 23

Langres to Champlitte, 37.6 km

One minute update

 

Full episode

 

Shoes are losing traction, gotta keep an eye on them. I packed my trolley and left the hotel looking for a place to grab a bite to eat. It was an expresso at the bar and a Napolitano at a bakery.

 

Opted to leave later than usual for a 37km day. Left Langres and headed out into the open road on a cloudy morning with 30% chance of rain.

 

Over cast skies, gentle slopes and a cool breeze made the walk a joy. But what started with a light shower soon turned into a deluge with gust of winds and thunder in the distance. I took refuge at a bus stop, put away the electronics and had lunch. The water proof socks worked wonders.

 

It was goodbye to champagne territory and hello to Burgundy. I had some fun with a heard of cows who didn’t quite know what to make of me.

Reached Champlitte by 4:30 and got a stamp at the tourist office. Via Francigena signs where everywhere.

 

Thanks to Gary and Stephen donations I made it to my hotel and had a great meal. To my horror I discovered my camera soaking wet and unable to turn on.
