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.
