28 August: We made it to the Brenner Pass on the border between Austria and Italy. Pilgrim Kristin Øveraas from Norway wrote a poem to celebrate our pilgrimage, published below with permission:
10 000 year old mountains come and go.
Landscapes and villages come and go.
Thoughts come and go.
Fellow pilgrims come and go.
Sun and shade alter.
New friendships arise.
North-Tyrolean hospitality makes the world a better place.
It was a highly memorable country crossing!
The pilgrim staff goes on. Grab the chance and join it!
