This blog will describe the preparation and log of a walking trip from Rome to my hometown Antwerp. It will be a ‘100 day – 2000 km’ walk mostly using existing long distance tracks. The road will start with the Francis’s path between Rome and La Verna, then it will follow the ‘GEA’ route over the Apennines, after crossing the Po valley, the Splügen pass will be taken in the Alps, the western road in the black forest in Germany will lead me to the low countries.
After the sunny day yesterday I should not complain about some rain today with the forecast of a sunny period in a few days. The first go to Bavanga a little town, but with great architecture. I can follow for a long stretch the path along a river that brings me to the heart of Foligno with his magnificent palazzo Trinci. I think that's here that Esher learned how to paint his palazzo's.
