Nature along the coast and a cave in the mountains

Yesterday, April 29th, I set off to finally complete the Stage B3 of the Yellow Trail: last year on May 14th 2018 I took the wrong direction somewhere between Prosecco and Sistiana and arrived at the railway station of Bivio d’Aurisana in the pouring rain. At the same railway station I started in good spirits for the end of the stage. Now I had the opportunity to have a look at the marble quarry of Cava Romana through the gate and over the fence… Continue reading

Napoleon’s Road and French music

On my way to the bus that would take me to Opicina for the sequel of my trip I passed a special sculpture of bronze: the “Penna Alpina”. It is an homage to the “Alpini”, a unit of the Italian army, that can be deployed especially in mountainous terrain (the Alps). Recently they have been deployed in Afghanistan. Continue reading

A Stage with far more plus points than minus points!

The day before yesterday I set off with a lot of anticipation to finally start the first stage of the Via Alpina. That was because of several reasons not very successful: I stranded somewhere on a desolate industrial area with moreover the threat of a thunderstorm. Today I started with regained energy to find my way back from that desolate industrial area towards nature and fresh air. That proved to be more difficult than I thought: which bus stop at which industrial area was the right one… Continue reading

A walk through Muggia

This morning at breakfast I couldn’t believe my eyes: I have never seen so many sweet dishes at a breakfast buffet! The lemon pie is my favourite, followed by chocolate rolls… And tiny cups of very strong espresso to wake up! Strengthened by so much sugar I set off to Muggia, where the first stage of the Via Alpina starts: Muggia to the Permuda Hut. Therefore I had to take the bus, Line 20. One has to buy a ticket in advance, because that is not possible on the bus, but surely at the many little booths – one can find one on the corner of every street. Continue reading
