St. Rose Philippine Duchesne Life in France

This is a pilgrimage sketched out to visit places important to St Rose Philippine Duchesne while she lived in France. She herself made a pilgrimage to the tomb of St John Francis Regis at Lalouvesc. Other places, like Taize and Grand Chartreuse, are cool places along the way. There are countless options and alternatives, for example intentionally going through some of the provincial cities like Dijon or through historic places like Vezelay, or …UNESCO places, or forests, or places made famous in paintings…. infinite permutations. Bottom line: 26 days Paris to Grenoble (more or less at ~30 km/d) mostly on one-lane paved country roads.
