... like the day before but throughout the day the landscape became more farmed and flat with more villages popping up.
We passed stunning beaches with golden sand that would put the Caribbean to shame, unfortunately a lot of them seem inaccessible, not to mention the water is freezing. After a picnic stop with yet another lovely view ...
