Learn what Western Europeans could expect throughout their days and weeks-long travel, with a focus on the expected hospitality of private homeowners along their routes. Houses (or barns, at worst) were open to virtually any traveler to sleep and eat, unannounced. Even the roughest lot were provided some rustic shelter and bread, but those of means shared in kind with those of the same class. After all, anyone might have to travel for religious, political, legal and other reasons, so a system of hospitality was developed for the universal benefit of all.
