The Vagabond Summer—Adventures in the Dolomites, Cinque Terre and Beyond

A big THANK YOU to our guests Liz and Chris for sharing their blog. They traveled through Italy for three weeks last summer including 8 days on our self-guided Italian Dolomites Trek
Liz and Chris blogged throughout their entire vacation including during the Dolomites hike. Liz says that at the time, they wrote it as a way to stay in touch with their families and share photos, but in hindsight it has become a wonderful memorial of the trip.
Here’s the link to their blog.
The last post of the trip is first, so you can either read it backwards chronologically, or scroll down and keep clicking on “older” until you get back to the beginning of the trip.  
If you’d like to see a self-guided Dolomites hike from a guest perspective, then this a great read. We particularly enjoyed the sections on the Cinque Terre and Lake Como regions, though we were a little jealous of the Ferrari test drive! Side note: We offer self-guided hikes in the Cinque Terre and Lake Como region too.
Thanks again to Liz and Chris for sharing this. 
Do you have a travel blog that you’d like to share, or memories from a past Ryder-Walker hike? Please send them our way.
