Cinque Terre

Hi there : )

Well here we are..very tired… ( did I say I was only going to walk a little today? ) but I’ve had a really great day.

First though I just want to show you a few photos from our walk yesterday..

It was another strenuous day..but again gorgeous! Hugo and I spent a bit more time yesterday walking along shady up,up, up and down, down, down tracks : ) which meant that there was some MUDDY sections…. I’ve decided…mud and I are not good friends : ( I hate the way, with a misplaced foot, it tries to snake it’s way into the gaps of your boots, how in some areas it laughs silently at you as it spreads itself murkily across your path..daring you to find a way through and indeed, how it evilly lies waiting from its slippery depths inviting you to walk forth unthinking, hoping that a boot will slide out of control…resulting in a pilgrims nightmare….damage to those precious items safely secured in the pack…

Goodbye to Hugo : ) just as the train pulls in and Jo and I set off together again on the train to Cinque Terre.

Today!! What a beautiful part of the world..and I can happily say I walked the whole five villages..it was not how I had planned my day, as I was tired from the past two days and had thought that the villages could be split between the two days that we were here….but as the day progressed, it just felt like the right thing to do ..and I’m glad that I did it like this : )

Jo and I left for the first village from Monterosso at about 10.30 : ) our first destination was Vernazza, roughly an hour and a half walk away.
