…or “The Slow Movement” which has nothing to do with a difficult bowel situation and everything to do with walking and cycling. A nice concept for a “movement”. There have been a few people visiting this website via the website of “IlMovimento Lento” so I went to discover what it is all about and to my delight they have linked to Puglia 2010! More than that, they have given me an entire page on their website. Wow! The text, in Italian, is as follows: Alberto Conte – Dall’InghilterraallaPuglia, in bicicletta Andrew staorganizzandounlungoviaggio in bicicletta, lungoEurovelo 5, ilpercorsociclabileinternazionaleassociatoalla Via Francigena.

I think my Italian can manage a translation:
“Andrew is organising a long journey by bike along the length of the Eurovelo 5, an international cycle route based upon the Via Francigena. He’s leaving in August 2010 and should arrive in Brindisi after five weeks. It could be, Andrew says, the first stage of a round the World trip. His blog (I like this bit!!!) is well made and updated regularly. It’s an interesting starting point and describes well the preparations for his trip. It’s worth a visit, and worth getting in touch with Andrew if you would like to accompany him on a part of his trip.”
My first review, and it’s positive! Thanks Alberto Conte.
