A great walking day, even if it topped 35 degrees.
Ahh … that’s where the women are; drinking tea and making bread

Like the post cards …
Ah, the Russians have arrived and Stu Walker it would seem!
Aaahhh. A lovely relaxing boat trip after all that walking.
The Saint Maria at so called (no) Donkey Island
And so to Greece and some more walking in the mountains, if we can drag ourselves away from the beautiful sea.
All that looking forward to the St Paul Paul Trail and I think I found it a bit disappointing – too remote and days of walking, carrying your provisions to arrive in a village with no shop and nowhere to stay. Good, hard walking though, which I’m sure will stand us well for the next bit.
If you ever think of walking it yourself make sure you do the gps thing and that Kate has matched her watermarkers to the book she has published!!
