That was a great walk indeed.

As you can see in the wood block print, most of it is not as wide and smooth as my photo above. Much of it is uneven cobblestones, very slippery in the rain. We didi not walk the whole way - maybe another time. We decided on a specific distance and an end-point: A small but famous inn - where we ate, and then took a taxi back.
