... they are delicious (you may gather that it is still raining). The Italians certainly know how to make cakes and biscuits! We walk along the front to a tunnel on the opposite headland in the hope of finding the continuation of the walk - the Italians don't know how to make signs directing you to things of interest. When we arrive at the tunnel it does suggest that it might go to Levanto so we press on. 5 km later we do arrive in Levanto after a very ...

I woke up early this morning to be first on the 5 hour footpath (pffff! I did it in 3.45 hours!) which is basically 9 km of stairs and hills, with the most amazing view!
So I'll just stay here for a few days.. and sunbath..
