Walking in the Mountains is a treat for the nature lover; the distances are small enough that one can plan to be in the next village for lunch or dinner, while those desiring a little more solitude can, with a little planning, choose one of the more remote mountain paths and walk for hours with nothing but magnificent views and the sounds of the forest for company.
It never ceases to amaze us how plants can withstand such intense changes in temperature, yet still survive. Once the middle of March arrives, every wildflower imaginable literally springs into life and the countryside is awash with the most amazing kind of flora. Temperatures go up to 20-23 Celcius ( 70-73 F ). We get rid of jumpers, coats and boots and change into lighter, more summery clothes.
