For nearly all the way, I walk alongside the river La Broye. Pure recreation for my feet, now being experienced walkers. The famous source of the mineral water Henniez lies on this part of the way. Am I as a pilgrim entitled to a mouthful of mild, well-cooled water? I try my luck – and am astounded at the multitude of trends of taste that are offered to today’s hikers to choose from: mango, passion fruit, kiwi, with much, a little or no added carbonic acid. But for all that, nothing is as refreshing, and able to quench the thirst, as pure water.
