VIA FRANCIGENA | Day 26

Gézier-et-Fontenelay to Besançon, 25.7 km

One minute update

 

Full episode

 

I left the farmhouse early in the morning after a quick breakfast.

 

It was downhill for the better part of two hours, cutting through farms, cornfields, past wooden and stone fences, but never too far from the forest.

I walked up and down backcountry roads. More water fountains and albergues is always a welcoming sight


Imagine my reaction when I found my first yellow arrow. I saw more closed churches but open bars, and then it was on to Besancon three days ahead of schedule, and tomorrow is a rest day.

 

It took two hours to get to the city center, but I finally crossed the bridge, and it was on to the hotel which I had book thanks to Patric and Annabel’s donations.

The old too familiar beer and cold sparkling water break and dinner was different.
