      Day 10: Vercelli to Nicorvo

      May 2 in Italy ⋅ ☁️ 16 °C

      I awoke this morning to heavy rain. Luckily, it was pretty much stopped by the time I left. I still wore the Great Pumpkin as the forecast was for rain all day, which it did on and off. Despite the weather, the walk (26.66 km) was extremely pleasant and over mostly flat terrain. I have never been in an environment where there is so much water - there are water channels and canals (not large ones) everywhere you go. I met another Australian today who is doing the VF on his bike, but he can only do so for two weeks. I'm spending my first night in legitimate pilgrim accommodation, a donativo (Ospitalità Madonna del Patrocinio e San Terenziano)! It has everything a pilgrim could want (except WiFi), and the heater is excellent. There is one other pilgrim here also, but she disappeared soon after I arrived. I'm sure we'll get to chat at dinner as there is only one place to eat in town. Some highlights from the day: walking for ages on a raised road (which gave me a wonderful view) and seeing two darling little two carriage local trains go by.Read more
