Day 12: Hône to Borgofranco d’Ivrea

IMG_5392-0.JPG
Today’s walk was beautiful. I’m proud to say I climbed every single stupid mountain just to descend at the other side. (And yes, it was climbing. I nearly broke my ankles quite a few times…) I made all of the useless detours to look at all of those churches that look pretty much the same and even more important are locked! Yes, in catholic Italy the churches are locked. Well. We simply stopped trying eventually. The path went through beautiful old villages, vineyards and forests, over some roads and in between very old stone walls. All in all, as I said, it was beautiful. And for the first time, my legs didn’t hurt so much. I could actually squad for a photo and get back up without any pain. Both my Achilles’ tendons are ok. I can feel them once in a while, but mainly they behave. The soles of my feet hurt after about twenty kilometres, but I think that’s fair enough. I have to say, today’s walk was good. I enjoyed it and took a lot of photos. Staying in a little B&B where we will have dinner with the family later on. Finally back in pilgrim mode. I had a great day! We left the Aosta Valley. There are a few more little peaks ahead of us, but I’m looking forward to reaching some nice lakes tomorrow.
PS: quite a few mosquitoes around here…
