Italian Dolomites Walking Holiday – Kastelruth to Mount Bulacia

Italian Dolomites Walking Holiday – Kastelruth to Mount Bulacia

This was the perfect start to the walking part of our honeymoon! We woke up on the first day to a blue sky, so we couldn’t resist attempting the hardest of the possible walks given to us by Inn travel. The plan was to climb the mountain we could see from our room; Mount Bulacia/Puflatsch (depending on if you are attempting to mispronounce it in Italian or German!)

The North Downs Way – Section 4: Merstham to Oxted

This section of the North Downs Way is pretty straight, following the various motorways from Merstham to Oxted.  It was easy to get to from London with public transport (with Southern trains from London Bridge.) The bad thing about this section of the walk is, although you can’t always see the motorways, there is a constant moan (or roar!) of cars and lorries hurtling past. We all liked the look of Merstham. There are huge, tudor-esque houses and a pretty…
