Excitement in the camp this morning with the impending completion of our 24 day and over 600 km journey. Very scenic walk with intermittent view of the port of Trieste leading us in. Hot today, over 30, so the sea and sky were sparkling. No problems with directions and a very smooth entry into the city and suddenly it was all over!
Early morning sunrise as vivid as the sunset last night.
Useful Slovenian words that Jana had listed on her door. Bit late for us but it would have been so helpful in all the hostels.
Views of the limestone gorges and mountains, including this carefully placed church halfway up the mountainside.
Civilisation at last.
Buildings and courtyard cafes catching our eye.
The main square of Trieste and the fountain in Palazzo del Governo,which was our destination.
Our moment of glory. 14th group to arrive.
Backpacks dispensed with.
Our ensuite room for four.
So the journey ends. Not everyone's preferred holiday but it certainly has been for us.
Challenging and hot but so rewarding. We have memories of 3 distinct countries, proud hosts and the fun of sharing it all with such a friendly bunch of people in our group.
But that's not all, On the 12th September Mark and I are walking in the Alps Maritimes for a week, starting in La Brique, which is north of Nice and finishing in Menton.
Meanwhile we are off to the Amalfi Coast for a week.
Please excuse blue font and underlining, some inexplicable gremlin has taken over and I'm yet to find the settings to change it.
