Might not be able to sleep tonight knowing that the view is right there outside the window. Real picture postcard stuff.

... in Spain was much better. As were the roads. What was intriguing is the huge number of abandoned buildings without a roof or windows being taken over by the greenery. These ranged from farmhouses to previous expensive homes to castles. I think the cost of maintenance just couldn't compare with starting again. We did visit various towns with preserved old buildings. One of which ...
... each other up to make the walls are a wonder.
Valdevere: a tiny village where we ended up one night after we walked cross country to a megalith site, which was a large circle of about 100 oval boulders upright and placed on the side of a hill overlooking a valley. A site where the sunrays and moonlight would convene as would people wanting to bless, gather, celebrate and meet up throughout their nomadic lives. No-one really knows for ...
