3 weeks. I've been out here 3 weeks and it really doesn't feel that long.
Anyway today I decided I couldn't be bothered to hire a bike (mainly because I didn't trust the brakes of the bikes from the hostel). Instead I went for another walk in the hills to the north of the hostel. I found a couple of amazing viwew points, then decided to follow signs for a viewing tower. After finally finding the tower I realise that it is at the top of the steps that started at one of the viewing points I was at earlier. There were some spectacular, and I mean spectacular views from the top of the tower.
I ate lunch in the sun by the tower and then decided to head for a place marked on the map by a wine glass. I guessed that they would serve drinks there. I walked about 4km to the place and found that it was in a beautiful setting overlooking the valley. Anyway, I had a beer and an ice cream whilst there and then headed homewards. I walked down a beautiful valley right beside a babbling brook. Once I got to the bottom I discovered a spectacularly beautiful river. I lay down by the river for half an hour reading in the sun before walking along it back to the hostel.
When I got to the hostel I went to upload pictures and realised that I couldn't find the cable which connects the camera to the computer and also connects the camera to the mains adaptor. I'm going to need to hope that I can buy another cable in one of the major cities that I'll be in soon.
Tomorrow I go to Italy, via Switzerland.
