Sep 15, 2014 - Italy – Bonassola

Bongiorno! A full night’s sleep and I feel like a new person! Met everyone on the 4th floor for breakfast overlooking the beach and Mediterranean – a great way to start the day! Meet time was 10:00 am for both the ‘easier’ and ‘harder’ hikers. We met Trevor and Tony in front of the hotel at the fountains and assembled into our respective groups. I followed with the ‘easier’ group and doubled as a sweep for Tony. We started our climb up to the shoulder of the hills behind the hotel. It was up, up, up for a couple of hundred metres and our...

Sep 14, 2014 - Italy – Pisa to Bonassola

Morning arrives very early for many of us. 3:00am was the general consensus for wake up time; Dana was the clever one and went downstairs for a hot chocolate. next time we decided we would get up and head downstairs rather than tossing and turning. Breakfast was included and was a lovely array of pastries, meats, cheeses, yogurt, fruit, eggs, bacon and the best rolls and chocolate croissants I have ever eaten. And the coffee……..mmmmmmm, Italian coffee. All of it tastes so good as it is ‘real’ food; made from scratch, with minimal processing...

May 18, 2009 - Cinque Terre

Cinque Terre Oh my god today will go down as one of those great days in History for the Hurricanes! Wow, we have to be in one of the world's most beautiful spots, and you all have to put the Cinque terre on your bucket list...please. We truly had a sensational day today (despite poor Rosco having a case of deli belly on Italian food). We woke up, badly after a horrendous night sleep, what with the sound of trains screaming by at 160km/hr ( our room literally neighbours the train line), church bells chiming through the night and very loud...

Sorry for the delay of no updates, but had no computer connection on the Cinque Terre. We now inFlorence at an internet cafe. This day from Nice, was an adventurous and eventful one. We hired rollerblades, bikes and scooters along Nice waterfront. Jess had a fall onto her wrist and had it in a sling, also blondy hurt her butt!! After a wander through the old town we headed off to Monaco to see boats of rich and famous, the casino, with ferraris parked out the front. The best thing was that it was all set up for the Monaco grand Prix on the...
