As I said in the previous post, we’ve had fun deciding on our “Awards List”. Today, we’re talking about walking, the most common way that we got around on our trip.
DAYS OF MOST WALKING. Both Sonya and I wore a Fitbit and had fun seeing how much we’d walked each day. Every day we walked a fair bit, some less than others (travel days, or if we went by bus/train/metro) and some a long way.
For each of these 3 days below I tried to choose a few photos that capture what we did and where we went, so have fun scrolling through!
Number One: The day with the most walking on my counter was Day 21, at 7.95 miles, at Lake Bled. On that day, Nath, Sonya and I (Rod was at a conference in Potoroz, also Slovenia) walked slowly around Lake Bled (about 3.5 miles), anticlockwise, with many stops to admire the drop-dead views. We also took a pletna boat to The Island (Otok) and walked up to the Church of the Assumption there, and then we walked around Bled Castle up on the hill on the town side of the lake. Back to our hotel and then out again for dinner at Panorama Restaurant on the lake.
Number One A: On Sonya’s counter it was Day 28 in Split, at 8.43 miles. That was the day we walked along the Riva (waterfront), through the Palace basement, all through the Old Palace, with its various cathedrals, crypts, temples, and out through the Silver Gate and the Golden Gate. Sonya also walked around on her own a bit, doing some shopping.
Number Two: The second biggest walking day on my counter was Day 11, at 7.6 miles, in Prague. On that day we walked over the famous Charles Bridge to Old Town Square with the Astronomical Clock. Then back over the bridge and up the hill to Prague Castle, which also has St Vitus Cathedral, with lovely views across the city and down to the Vlatava River. We walked back down on the other side of the Castle, past some old vineyards on the hill, where you can stop for a cool drink and/or a glass of wine.
