Good stuff Josh!

Keep us posted and I hope the A levels were as you wish.

PS Glad to read that JDS appears to be in good form.

Quick update: I'm heading to CH this afternoon and then to London Friday. From there I walk to Canterbury and pick up the Via Francigena, leaving the UK around September 20th. From Canterbury, it's 90 days to Rome!

Just a quick note, as the French keyboards are killing me: I'm in France, with many exciting things happening. However, I probably won't be blogging until I get home owing to the large number of words, costs of internet cafes and the aforementioned keyboards. Sorry!

PS: ETA Rome is December 14th.
