Is this for real? A few days ago I made almost 4,000 height meter on one stage and today not even 150… As the day was as sunny and hot as the days before I already knew I can’t walk 36 km and decided to take a bus for the first part (which was mainly on a road anyway). Hopping of the bus in Musile di Piave it still took me 4 hours to get to the district of Jesolo; all along the little river Fiume Sile and again in the hot sun, without shadow but luckily with a little wind already from the sea side. With the help of a strong Espresso I also made my way to Lido di Jesolo 5 km further, my feet quite painful and pretty swollen from the heat by then. But finally: the sea! Though its not the last stage yet it felt amazing – I really made it over the Alps from Munich to the Italian Coast. And was soon desillusionized by all the Austrian and German tourists holidaying 😉
