THE AMALFI COAST

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

I loved the fact that each walk is different in terms of terrain and spectacular views.  The walk to the nature reserve, which in itself is another sight to behold, was my favourite with the dappled sunlight, passing mule trains and waterfalls.  I also enjoyed the occasions of taking the local bus back to our hotel (sit on the left hand side!) and twirling ever upwards round the hairpin bends, beeping frantically as you go.  We did one trip at night and looked back on Amalfi twinkling in the dark - perfect!

What did you think of your group leader?

Albert was a safe pair of hands as a group leader.  He gave the group the freedom to find their level in terms of fitness and speed and kept us all together.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

My advice would be to make sure you have comfy walking shoes (I had a blister!) and take a pair of flip-flops in your back-pack for the beach, as it is shingle and very painful to walk on.  A cozzy and walking boots is not a good look, especially in Positano amongst the glamorous Italian ladies.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Exhilarating walks, great food, fine wine and lovely company!   Who could ask for more?
