Via Francigena – it’s official

MJ and I are now recognised by the Confraternity of Pilgrims to Rome, bringing us ever closer to our pilgrimage in June.

Should you find yourself in the business of walking the Via Francigena, I strongly recommend joining the Confraternity. Apart from how edifying it is to be a member of a confraternity, the accommodation list provided to members is worth its weight in gold.
