This week, I decided to post my story earlier than Sunday. As Sunday is Christmas and you might all be very busy celebrating. Happy Holidays to you.
Our self-guided walk continue in ITALY.
Day 5. Walked from Benevello to Neive. 19.5 km. The trail passes through forests and orchards. We had to put our raincoat for a bit . Only a few drops of rain but the sky was rather cloudy and the path was muddy.
We were in the rolling hills of the wine country with vineyards dedicated to Barbaresco, a light version of Barolo.
During our morning walk, we saw a man and his dog. It was a truffle hunter. The season had just started.
We were rather happy to find a good restaurant in Treiso to have lunch. It seems that eating has been the center of our time during those walking days ! The village of Treiso is presented here in a watercolor image ( a special setting I can do with my camera).
What should we eat ? I think the ravioli would be a good choice with insalatona mista.
Every time, we passed some fig trees, our friend David wanted to pick some and a few time we taste them. Delicious ! The leaves were changing color. We tasted the grapes also from time to time. There were so sweet.
After 19.5 km, we arrived in Neive, a quaint little village. We had time to wander before dinner. An old church, a bell tower, some interesting architecture, people having a drink outside. It was September 21 but we had been quite lucky with good weather. And we only had one more day to walk in this area.
A little more about this walk in my next post. I think I will post it next Friday.
Thanks so much for reading.
