  1. I just heard about your pilgrimage and have enjoyed reading about your experiences. Thanks for all the hard work you’re putting into posting. They’ve brought back a lot of memories, especially the rain, closed restaurants and wonderful mushrooms. Ha! I walked a peace pilgrimage from France to Jerusalem in 2006 through part of your route, and we spent last summer crossing the Alps from Trieste to Monaco on the Via Alpina–again, following part of your route (with, incidentally, enough rain to float an ark).

    I see you’re passing through Vaduz. There’s a hostel there, but you may want to check out the campsite with bungalows just outside town, tucked beside the mountains. It’s very accommodating.

    Remember, fall is just around the corner. It’s a great time to walk the Via Francigena. The colors of Tuscany and around Lake Bolseno will be fantastic. Be sure to sample the mushrooms in Pontremoli!

    God speed to you both and Ultreya! (from another crazy Wilson)!

  2. From Pastor Kruse in Rome I heard of your Pilgrimage.I met him,when I arrived on 28.09.2010 in Rome,having made nearly the same way like you do.I started at 29.06.2010 in Lutherstadt Wittenberg following the same itinerary with one exception:from Pavia I went the Via Emilia up to Bologna,crossing the Appenin between Bologna and Florence ( Via degli Dei),then Siena.The part between Siena and Rome I followed the Francigena.Here you will find lots of Pilgrim hostels of very different quality,the one in Radicofani(Don Elia) is fantastic.The same is true for the Centro di spiritualita S.Lucia Filippini in Montefiascone.Speaking with Suor Teresa (who is the Priora) about my pilgrimage in memoriam of Luthers way to Rome I was very astonished,when she asked me:”Oh for Martin Luther King?”This confusion I have found several times,obviously there is a “black hole” in the tradition of ecclesiastic history in Italy .Also in augustinian monasteries I found very different reactions:in Pavia,at the tomb of Augustinus in my impression they did not like the Memory of Luther,whereas for example in Florence,Santo Spirito,the monk,whom I asked for a stamp in my pilgrims card,was very interessed and told me,that Luther had celebrated the holy mass at Santo Spirito.Also at S.Maria del Popolo in Rome,where my pilgrimage ended,I found a very friendly reaction.
    I will follow your further way to Rome,may The Lord be with you as He was with me on my long journey(90 days without any problem!)
