We are so fortunate to be able to enjoy the best life has to offer in the last 30 days. The serene walks in the forest, lovely and kind people along the way, great food, beautiful vistas and spiritual vibrations of the nature and the Saints. We end our Camino today in Rieti. We will use the rest of our time here in Italy like typical tourists.
We left Poggio Bustone this morning going downhill. Fortunately we did not go all the way down but stayed in the mountains, walking along the ridges most of the day before ending the walk in the valley.
We came partway down the mountain and then began going from one mountain to another on a beautiful path along the contour.
I thought we were done with climbing only to discover this beautiful town on the way. It was a fun climb to the top of the village.
At the top we were able to discover the secret to great Italian coffee. A patron Saint for Cappuccino!!!
All kidding aside, the best part of the day was when we reached the Santuario La Foresta. St Francis spent 50 days in this sanctuary towards the end of his life. He also performed his miracle of grapes here. A beautiful place with nice peaceful vibrations.
It’s been our joy to share this wonderful journey with you.
