Walk for Jesus – Jerusalem Pilgrimage: Episode 16 – Day 93-99

Dear Friends,

Last Tuesday we returned from my hiking trip in Italy. Due to some physical issues, it was a challenging and frustrating time for me. I had to hike short distances and had to skip certain parts of the trail because the distances were too long. This you will find back in the trail map below.

Eventually, I had to make the decision to quit before the appointed time. I stopped in Altopascio. The plan was to fly back to The Netherlands on the 7th of October but now we flew back 1 week earlier.

For a day by day impression (starting with day 1) of my ‘Walk for Jesus’ you can also follow my ‘Pilgrim’s Corner‘ Instagram account.

God willing, I will continue my hike and return to Italy as soon as I have fully recovered. I will keep you updated ….

Enjoy the route and the pictures I made of this trip below.

God bless!

Walk for Jesus – Jerusalem Pilgrimage: Episode 15 – Day 85-92

Dear Friends,

Last wednesday I, unfortunately, had to return from Italy with an inflamed left achilles heel. Guess I stretched it to far from the beginning of the hike. To watch your physical limits is a delicate business.

This time I hiked from Piacenza to Pontremoli in Toscane by entering the Apennine mountain range. It felt ‘strange’ again to hike by myself. In my previous hikes, from Langres (F) to Piacenza (I), I always had someone at my side.

For a day by day impression (starting with day 1) of my ‘Walk for Jesus’ you can also follow my ‘Pilgrim’s Corner‘ Instagram account.

Coming month, God willing, I will return to Italy to continue my hike from Pontremoli to the south ….

God bless!
