... us into the camp which was very professionally set up with an excellent restaurant, pool, bar and mini-mart, but, as usual, fairly dodgy wifi.
We trekked down to the beach, which was pleasant enough, but the limestone pebbles are really dusty, so everything gets covered in a whitish dust. You can understand why everyone from Europe goes gaga when they see our beaches. We are really ...
Today we took the SLOW train to Riomaggiore. The train to our transfer spot, St Stefan had about 6 cars and was the oldest looking train we had ever seen.

The train is very economical (around 15 Euros per person, per trip) but there are some trade-offs. There are no announcements once you are on the train confirming that you are on the right one. Also no personnel that we have seen. Passengers validate their tickets before boarding and although they must do spot checks, ...
