A tough day at the office: Sam’s legs bothering him combined with a long day, hot weather, and too much walking on roads. But we made it to the end of the via Appia/Traiana and have photos (and blisters) to prove it. The scenery was great – at times – but a long section beside the freeway was energy sapping.
Susan met us on the docks at Brindisi. The last part to the via Appia finish line is the little passenger ferry that plies the inner harbour, proving that the modern route does not adhere too closely to the original.
In 2009, we embarked on a one-year family sailing adventure aboard a Grand Soleil 39, "SV Mulan". Our original sailing blog is linked on this site.
In 2017, Susan, Andrew, Sam & Max walked the Camino Frances from St-Jean-Pied-de-Porte to Santiago de Compostella (and rode bikes from Burgos to Leon as a blister recovery strategy), and in 2018 Jack also joined the crew as we waled the northern section of the Camino Portuguese from Porto to S de C.
In 2019 Andrew, accompanied by Max for the first few hundred kms, and Susan for the Tiscan section, walked the via francigena from Canterbury to Rome. That journey is blogged in this site.
This blog is planned as an alternative to the endless instagram posts used previously to communicate with those interested in our travels - although there is a linked instagram account as well!

Awesome updates, like I was there, minus the blisters. Enjoy the anniversary celebrations!
