Via Francigena

This is  a short index page with links to all posts I’ve written about my “Via Francigena” pilgrimage by bike from Canterbury in the UK to Rome in Italy. The Pilgrimage starts on the 30th of July and ends on the 10th of September 2016.

For now, I categorized the posts into “Pre“, “During” and “Post” pilgrimage. I may change this page or this classification upon my return on  September 2016.

I’ve also included a section for other online resources at the bottom of this page.

This is very basic right now. Later I’m going to add the video playlist and make it look a bit nicer. All links will open in a new tab / window.
