VIA FRANCIGENA | Day 39

Orsières to Bourg Saint Pierre, 14.3 km

One minute update

 

Full episode

 

The second day ascending the Alps. It was backcountry roads, past streams, hydroelectric pipes, and the ladies.

I ran into Rudolf, and we were soon facing a very scary slope. I had an expresso at the halfway point, and It was time for a first on the trip. It got so cold Chia lebuff made its triumphant debut on the vlog.

A river crossing and a dip under an electric fence later and I was at Saint Pierre just before the temperatures plunged into the single digits.

I stayed at an Albergue with a dorm all to myself. By the way, my toe has healed beautifully. There was a church, and it had a stamp, I was a happy camper.

Once the rain started It didn’t stop all afternoon. I had dinner with the newly formed wolf pack: two Italians, a German and le cubain.

Beers all around.
