PRELIMINARY REMARK AND INTRODUCTION OF BRANDON WILSON
(by Enea Fiorentini)
I have not known personally Brandon, I have only seen some photos,
but I have read with admiration the long list of his experiences on the
web site of "Pilgrims Tales":
http://www.yakbutterblues.com , where there
is the introduction to his last book-guide and book reviews.
Some days ago, I have received one email from Brandon, in which he said that he had seen this my website
and that, having walked on the entire path of the Via Francigena, he wished to have the opportunity
to insert his story between those already present on my web pages.
I have answered that not there were problems and now you can see published here the Brandons report.
It is the account of the Italian part of the Via Francigena that Brandon has carried out
leaving from Aosta the 13th of September and arriving to Rome the 11th of October, 2000.
I have supplied to the translation of this report in Italian language for greater comfort
of the Italian readers.
I must thank Brandon for the permission for the publication of his story.
Ilike also to send to Brandon, from these lines, my best wishes for its long trekking
(beyond 5000 km on foot), from Dijon (France) to Jerusalem through many European and Middle East countries,
beginning mid-April 2006.
Who wants to keep itself informed on the new enterprise of Brandon, he can read the information on
his website, to the address:
And, at last, Id like to wish all the visitors of these pages a good reading...
