Last night ( Sunday) just about everything for dinner came from the farm – the preserved meats, bread, wine. Massimo, the owner was keen to talk and we a few long conversations about all sorts of things.
As it turned out, he had to go to a meeting in the morning along the VF route so my walking was reduced by 8km. A lot of today was on asphalt, as I slowly decended the valley of the Magra river. It was hard in the feet. People who do these sorts of walks are always taking about blisters but I have only had one since I started training for this trip back in December and that was due to getting wet socks in a storm. But today two blisters are developing on my left foot to add to my sore heals ! Let’s see what tomorrow brings which includes a big climb over a range as I get closer to the coast .
