Costa Rica Traverse

I don't think my feet have touched the ground since I've returned from Costa Rica so any relaxation achieved on the trip is rapidly disappearing sadly. However, just a quick note to say that it was the most amazing trip I've ever done. Danny our guide was phenomenal - his ability to keep us upbeat and motivated and telling us information on a need to know basis was fantastic - I wish he could be our guide on every trip I do in the future! The rest of his team was also fantastic - the logistics behind the trip were critical but totally seemless as we trudged through the rainforest and up vertical mud slopes in the rain. I was going to go on a Patagonia trek but delighted that I was advised to do this trip - it really was a challenge and I was nervous about my levels of fitness but I realise now that I'm fitter than I thought I was - long may I continue to keep the fitness up although last week I took it easy. Thanks again to WE for their excellent advice to do this trip - I'm so happy I did and have met some great people as a result!

Assisi to Orvieto

Visiting Umbria, one of Italy's smallest regions, is an exhilarating experience with its breathtaking countryside vistas. Walk from ancient Assisi, the birthplace of St Francis, through rolling countryside and quaint hilltop towns where world-famous handmade ceramics are produced. Imposing monasteries and castles mark the landscape of this region. Visit the old city of Perugia with its impressive architecture and Roman sites. Explore Spello and follow the ancient route of Via Romea to Città della Pieve, a red-brick town on the border with Tuscany. The trail concludes in Orvieto where car access into the city is prohibited in order to preserve the fragile rocky plateau on which it stands. Evenings are spent in a combination of comfortable hotels and agriturismos specially chosen for their local flavour and classic cuisine.
