Totally beat. Took the bicycle route, but outsmarted myself. Ended walking much further and climbing about the same—maybe just not over jagged rocks. Probably walked 28 km ( 18 mi). Decent weather—not hot, and no rain. Funny that I still ran into mud on the last 4 km and had to cross a creek for which I fetched a log nearby—otherwise I would have gotten my sandals wet.
Am at an Agriturismo Lodging really in the boonies. The kids in their 20s speak very well English and they’re working the business.
My socks are getting holes! Maybe I can get my two pairs to last me the five days, then I’ll buy new ones in Rome.
