Has your backpack ever become your pillow? In the Tuscan countryside, while walking the Way of St. Francis, a tough hill and warm sun put me on my back for a restorative nap. My 260-mile trek to the Vatican will be one of four European distance walks featured in my second book, coming soon.
Like books, long-distance treks sometimes save the best for last. There were countless highlights (and some lows) during our 260-mile journey that began in Tuscany, but the finish at St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City moved Sue and me. Like reading a great book, we didn’t want the month-long trek to end. The Way of St. Francis is one of four adventures that make up my second book, due out soon. If you want to be among the first to hear when it is published, send me a note through “contact” on my website, regspittle.com.
