The countdown to my next adventure has begun! Tomorrow I set off on the “Sentiero Spirito” – an 85km trail which crosses the Majella National Park in Abruzzo. It’s an ancient route that links the Celestine hermitages of the region and winds over three mountains (>2000m). There are deep gorges, waterfalls, beautiful mature forests and wide rocky plateaus. It’s a rare, untouched wilderness where bears, wolves, boar and wild horses still roam freely. My friend has written a great description on her blog http://kokopelli-italy.blogspot.it/…/the-spiritual-trail-jo… (although we’re doing the route the opposite way). Lots of info to come including full route & accommodation info (if you don’t fancy wild camping!).
