Peregrinating In Italy

May 31, 2019

We decided not to walk the second week of the European Peace Walk and took a bus to Trieste, Italy. Our hostel is along the coast headed out of the city.

We visited this Slovenian park yesterday, walking the four mile round trip from our hostel in Bled.

We had already walked the 4 mile circumference of Lake Bled and climbed up to this castle. So we aren’t slackers. We found this fabulous church on our way back to Bled. The steeple is a stunning dark red, but it was difficult to get a photo. The painting over the altar is John baptizing Jesus. We met two guys who caught this huge carp in the lake. It must weigh between 50-100 pounds. With the gear they had, this was what they were fishing for. The weather was rainy all of our time in Slovenia and we are moving to the better forecast for Italy. Tomorrow we start a walk across northern Italy called Via Postumia, a recently revived Camino trail. We were excited to find a Camino marker! This shell actually marks Via Flavia, which connects with our trail. This Camino is in its infancy and it requires more planning as we go. We have found the next two nights lodging at €20 each per night.

We are aiming for Venice.

  1. Beautiful shots, Robert

    How are your tootsies holding up?

  2. It must be the Camino marker and/ or the sunshine but your trail “voice” has fully returned with this post. I am looking forward to sharing your discoveries on the ancient paths ahead. Buen Cammino
