One minute update

 

Full episode

 

Left the keys in the mailbox and headed straight to an open bakery for breakfast. Grabbed a couple of fruits from a market and I was out onto the countryside. I couldn’t believe how lucky I was to witness a traditional olive harvest.

 

It was at the “Santuario della Madonna del Sorbo” that I met six other pilgrims. We walked together all the way to Formelo where I had a one hour stop to find a place in Rome while enjoying a little snack.

 

Only 33 km from Rome, tomorrow is the big day.

There were more highway crossings, muddy terrain and stone markers. I shared a focaccia for lunch with a Prey Mantis by a water mill, before reaching La Storta.

 

Thanks to David’s donation, I stayed the with nuns in my last monastery of the trip. Oh, and I arrived just in time as the heavens opened up. I shared the dorm with six other pilgrims all excited to make it to Rome tomorrow.

 

I had some pinchos for dinner and called it my last night on the Via Francigena.
