Walking the Amalfi Coast
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
I think walking into the nature reserve between Amalfi and Ravello and not initially seeing the waterfall but feeling the cool mist on my hot back and turning to see it. I think that has to be number one. However, walking around the rim of Vesuvius really made the adrenalin flow for me - I don't have much of a head for heights, but our guide Paul made me feel I could do it and I did!
What did you think of your group leader?
Paul was a superb leader, he helped us bond as a group. He constantly told us what a fit group we were and how well we walked together, this meant we felt we could achieve and wanted to stick together. He socialised with us and took trouble to make sure no-one was treated as a favourite and everyone got equal time. We trusted his judgement and he paced us well.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
Be prepared to be hooked on walking if you haven't done it before.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
This is the first holiday I have had for years when I really didn't want the holiday to end. Immediately we landed at Gatwick, I downloaded the Exodus app. to look for our next walking holiday. My husband and I have joined the local Ramblers Association to help maintain our fitness, until we can get away again.
