There was so much packing to do, as you can imagine, we have collected a few things along the way, Laurie made me dispense with a few things since I have had a little retail therapy! All is good though and we managed to squeeze everything in.

I walked up this big hill, following the signs that appeared every now and then, and some how managed to completely bypass the amphitheater and end up where I started.
