TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Langhe Alba
On Friday we headed for sant Pierre in the alps, hoping to spend 3 days visiting Parco Gran Paradiso and viewing the mountains. But the fates intervened. Firstly, our B&B B Barberi had the kindest, most helpful host who spent much time dialoging with me through the I translate app, searching for weather forecasts and suggesting itineraries that were not too demanding. But, alas, she could not change the weather, nor the hard as a rock mattress that failed to bring sleep. So, with reluctance, we moved on. Hotel Langhe, set in a green area just on the fringe of the old Roman city of Alba suited fine for 2 days, enabling us to visit the town, tour the extensive Roman ruins, and, for me to get a haircut.

Tonight we are dining in the Chops Grille for my birthday. They claim the best steak on the high seas. We have much more motion on this crossing than we did last year in the Pacific. They have drained and closed the pools until we get to some calmer waters. They have also made some subtle changes in the entertainment because of the increased motion.
So, we hope all are well and we will get back to you when better conditions permit. ...
... It has an old cathedral and lovely narrow streets from which were hanging lots of different flags. As we suspected they hold a similar event to Sienna 'Palio'. The flags represent the various 'houses' and they race, wait for it.... donkeys! Apparently a nearby town does it with horses and Alba is taking the mickey.
A few km later we were in Barbaresco. A very small village and we are staying ...
So little happened today neither of us could even think of a title for the day! We are both feeling a bit unmotivated with the area we are in and distance to go. A rest day is in store and desired by both! Although the riding has been great we are getting our fair share of rolling hills, sunshine, and motorbikes. The path we were on today seems to be popular with the motorbike crowds. That was all we saw today, at ...
... with our developing plan we get on the bikes and head to Cueno, our first Italian city. We have a few chores to catch up on and items to pick up, we busted the bike tire pump a few days ago, lost the pot, ran out of bug spray, and needed another bike lock. We start our day just shy of noon and ride 40 flat kilometres into the city. The rest of the day is spend into and out of stores, a few random cheap beers and finding wine in a carton again! Something we hadn't seen since ...
The next couple of days were spent at the beach, relaxing in the sun. On our last night there We had drinks with our American neighbours and thrashed them in Uno - playing Taffs' rules of course.
Overall, the Cinque Terre was an amazing place, but I couldn't help but think that It was slightly ruined by the all of the tourists which cluttered the streets of the towns. Again, I can't really complain too much seeing as Sue and I were tourists too.
