Regensburg Legionaries arrive in Italy
September 10th, 2004
The brave students from Regensburg University decided to stop their 600 Km march in Trento, and not to continue to Rome.
«We will re-attempt in the future probably, now it's time to go back home».
Will you leave for Rome? «No, we will go back to Germany, we are exhausted». One of their techers will arrive to pick up them
with a coach.
How was the travel? «Each stop, we received incredible welcome with huge feasts. Sometimes people was so pressing that we renounced to some
hours of sleep, even if so tired. People was asking for us, they always make many questions».
Was everything ok during the march? «Usual troubles, fleet blisters and legs pains. But we are not become thin, because of all what people has offered us».
Always with caligae? «Many of us yes. But not all. Some renounced due to the pains and are walking with modern footwear».
During the march they lost one of the sponsors standards in the Isar waters due to a sudden and powerful gale. «We saved it by swimming».
A great success of the experiment of the Regensburg University, the same that some weeks ago made a working roman ship.
