The only tough part is the thick mud which coats the path as I trudge uphill but soon I arrive among the rocks and everything is dry. Huge boulders are scattered across the landscape, as though tossed by some angry giant, and the trail leads through narrow gaps through overhanging cliffs, aptly named the Labyrinth.
Spring comes early in the Channel Islands, since they're the most southerly part of the British Isles. It's the ideal time to explore Guernsey's network of excellent walks with over 24 miles of cliff trails. The scenery is constantly changing, whether it's the granite cliffs of the south and east or the sandy bays of the north.
Even though I live only 5 miles from the Olympic Park, so far I've been determined to ignore the whole spectacle and bask in the sun in my garden with a glass of cold beer. However, as a confirmed foodie, I can't ignore the fact that some of Britain's top supper clubs, along with a few gourmet chefs, are staging a fantastic banqueting experience which changes every night during London2012.
As you might imagine, a bottle of Traditional Balsamic Vinegar is pricier than what you might pay for a bottle of the non-traditional variety, but if you enjoy good food, investing in a bottle or two (to be used sparingly, of course) should not disappoint. And if you are ever in Emilia Romagna or planning a trip to the region, I would highly recommend this tour!
