Slowly getting back into the way of Via Francigena.

It’s nice to be back in walking daily rhythm.

Stoped at beautiful little Chapel San Rocco in San Minatao for a stamp where the host let us ring bell.

Then continued walking through Tuscany’s rolling hills and vineyards eventually making it to Gambassi Terme and excellent quaint Ostello Sigerico.

Arrived at 2 and walked to Bar for a drink and finally met John Maclean a Canadian walking with a hockey stick.

At 3 we checked in with friendly Paulo and had litre of wine and 2 Tagliere Platters for €5 each.

Before dinner we enjoyed a beautiful sunset.

At dinner we sat with an older French couple walking from Vezelay to Assisi. Feeling a strong urge, am tempted after 1600 kms. to veer off to Assisi and the home of St. Francis but Mika’s Schengen Visa does not allow enough time.

After dinner we toured chapel at the Hostel.
