Walking / Guided walking excursions
« Last post by Relaxed on May 20, 2017, 09:20:20 PM »
I've just come across this site http://www.italiaguide.org/ which has loads of excursions (of varying lengths).


Just select Abruzzo from the drop down menu top right, (if it doesn't open to that), and see if there is anything which might suit. There are some trips taking place on June 2nd and 3rd which form part of a National Day of Guided Excursions #GiornateGAE2017 and which cost 5 a person.


http://www.aigae.org/giornate-nazionali-guida-ambientale-escursionistica-2017-abruzzo/ gives you an idea of the distances involved for these 'special' days, with suggestions on what to wear and what to carry with you.

It was a great event and we went to the finish at Mamma Rossa. They offered a park and ride from Pretoro which was fine and only E2 return but it drops off at Passo Lanciano so you had to walk about 5k or get the chair lift and walk across the top about 1k but its rough terrain obviously and I took my mum and dad who are disabled but they were determined to do it so we got the chair lift and all in all it was brilliant, though they had nowhere near enough coaches we queued 2hrs going and coming back.

Bit of a spill today after collision with a police motorbike. Don't think there are any serious injuries

Seems like filmon has blocked all Euro football games...managed to find it on a Canadian tv site but buffering was really bad.

I'm really surprised more people here have not complained about this, so guessing many are watching it using a VPN to access BBC iplayer ot ITV hub rather than go via Filmon? Having went from watching everything and its dog on Sky a few years ago I watch little or nothing (in Italy), but thought I'd take in the Wales game the other day... No vpn, but I knew Filmon had carried the earlier games - but not later... !

Well at least we haven't chosen to move to Spain, our second team wouldn't have been that great either.  How sick?

Ah yes and my next best bet is doing okay just now (mockers just went on them also) - so it's "come on Italy"  :-\

I've just read somewhere that this week England was knocked out of Europe by Iceland and last week England was knocked out of Europe by people that shop in Iceland   ::)

Ha ha, admittedly I had to read it twice. :D
