Goodbye Morocco, Hello Via Francigena:  An Introduction to Our Next Adventure

Training for the Via Francigena on the Spirit Sands trail, Spruce Woods Provincial Park

Gail and I hope you enjoyed all eleven Lost in Morocco videos. For our next adventure, beginning July 29, 2023, we will be heading to France to continue our long-distance pilgrimage walk from London to Canterbury to Rome. This trip will see us walking from the tiny village of Gy, just north of Besançon in France, southwards to Switzerland, across the Saint Bernard Pass and into northern Italy.

We hope you enjoy the introductory video below. The setting is beautiful Spruce Woods Provincial Park in Manitoba. We walked three long 16-22 kilometre trails over three consecutive days, carrying our fully-loaded backpacks. All to prepare us for the challenging climbs we will encounter on the Via Francigena.
