Santo Stefano, Italy – January 19, 2017
Today was quiet. Connect the dots. Walk the steps between where I stopped yesterday and where I slept after catching a train.
A mess of sidewalks, streets, and paths took me along the first bit of coast, rising up a small mountain to get around a steep headland where the road had no room for even a hint of shoulder.
The second half was an old railway converted to bike path, flat, clear, and easy to walk. It let me drift forward without thinking. No trail to sort out, no turn to catch, no worry about where I might sleep, just walk and stare at the ocean, watch sunset, and enjoy the echos through a mile of old railway tunnel.
Quiet. Connecting dots. Room to breathe.
