  • Day83


    September 10, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    10.2 km, 202m ascent
    We only had to walk for an hour this morning before we had the stunning Adriatic Coastline stretching out before us, beckoning us down to the waterfront. Our Swiss friends Tanja and Luca were waiting for us (they had spent the night in a different village) and we walked together to Duino. The water was clear and calm, the sun was pelting down and we were ecstatic that it was perfect for swimming. We have walked 700km across the alps for this swim and it felt glorious!Read more

    Tribil di Sopra

    September 2, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    23.5 km, 1222m ascent, 852m descent, rating moderate
    Too knackered to take photos today -,brutal hills in 90 % humidity and finished off with another massive thunderstorm (lightening strikes all around) and torrential rain. The best part of today was walking into our accommodation - this delightful house in a small village.Read more

    Muggia / San Rocco

    September 15, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    21.9 km, 570 ascent, 500 descent
    Another very warm day for walking but we set a cracking pace once we realised that a beautiful pool awaited us at our final destination. We actually managed to completely lose the trail (really for the first time) which resulted in a detour of bush bashing up a steep hill - we were pretty delighted to get back on track after this.
    We walked through the town of Muggia, right to the seafront and then continued on to the small port of San Rocco. It was a lovely final destination and we spent the late afternoon swimming and lazing in the sun then celebrated with a bottle of Prosecco and dinner at a small waterfront restaurant. The marina area looked lovely by night lit up by a full moon.

    Rest day - Duino and Sistiano

    September 11, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    9.3km, 211 ascent
    A sensational day walking the Rielke Path with its stunning views of the Adriatic Ocean near Trieste. We struck gold with an upgrade to a Private Luxury Spa experience at the exclusive seaside resort at Portopiccolo - we had 3 glorious hours to relax and rejuvenate in absolute luxury.Read more

    Cividale del Friuli

    September 3, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    25.7 km, 590m ascent, 1121m descent, rating medium
    Today we walked with a young Swiss couple and we smashed out the kilometres in great time ....and we had fantastic storm free weather - we could even see the Adriatic Ocean in the distance which is our final destination.

    Bagnoli della Rosandra

    September 14, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    18.4 km, 340m ascent, descent 600
    We loved the walking again today, through forests, along an old railway cutting and then through the spectacular Rosandra Gorge/Valley. We finished the day with a perfect rest stop by the creek where we could revive feet in the cold water with the sun streaming down through the narrow gorge.Read more

    Feistritzer Alm

    August 22, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    9.8 km, ascent 1135m, descent 0, medium rating
    We had a glorious breakfast with so many things to choose from but my favourite item was the house made butter (served on ice) with crusty bread! We then walked out the door of the hotel and immediately started our ascent of 1135m which did not ease off until we arrived at our mountain hut right on the border of Italy, Austria, and Slovenia. Everything was sitting in the clouds when we arrived (the hut sits at 1711m) and we spent the entire afternoon watching the panorama around us change minute by minute. It was a busy stopping place for walkers of all ages (and their dogs) and a noisy mix of the 3 languages - it was fantastic entertainment. We spent the afternoon and evening, eating drinking, talking. At around 6pm the fog and cloud finally lifted to reveal incredible views of the surrounding alps. Our sleeping quarters for the night was a basic wood room without power but cosy all the same.Read more

    Feistritzer Alm

    August 22, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    We saw the bears .... as a photograph on the wall of the mountain hut! They now have 4 pairs in the district and this year, one was seen just outside the hut. A few years back they thought the bears were definitely heading to extinction in these areas.

  • Day65


    August 23, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    14.7km, ascent 244m, descent 1123m, medium rating
    We left the hut in drizzle and fog and within 10 minutes we were in almost total whiteout on the ridge - which made navigation by markers pretty useless. We eventually managed to find a track (and not lose each other) and we started our long steep descent. Unfortunately we missed the views because of the cloud but it provided lovely cool walking conditions in the forest down to the pretty village of Valbruna, Italy.Read more

  • Day81


    September 8, 2019 in Italy ⋅ 🌧 20 °C

    16.3 km, 48m ascent, 3 hours and 1 minute
    Today we left at 7am to try and outrun a huge storm that was forecast (31.6 mm of rain, thunder and lightening) for the area. We left with our walking friends Luca and Tanja and set the cracking pace of 5.4kph to arrive at our hotel by mid-morning. I was delighted to find a beautiful pool and quickly jumped in to have a swim under the darkening skies. By the time the storm hit we had hunkered down in our lovely room enjoying a lazy afternoon lapping up the luxury.Read more
