Weekly Photo Challenge: Endurance

Continuing my Positano theme from two weeks ago challenge: Adventure – I again thought of the Amalfi Coast and my misadventure whilst there.

Endurance this week reminds me of one wrong step leads to 1700 steps (down luckily)!!  We were in the hills way above Positano, accessed via two buses when I thought hmm to get to the next town down from here we could probably, simply go down the steps.  Surely they wouldn’t just go straight down to Positano, they would stop off at one or two of the other towns along the way…..WRONG!  1700 steps and about an hour with backpacks on, later we arrived in Positano way over the other side to where we were staying.

What did we do – easy got another two buses back up the mountain again and continued on to where we really wanted to go.  Has anyone else made this same mistake??

Endurance is, to me, is holidaying overseas where you walk more, you eat more, you take more photos and endure all that is exploring this wonderful earth of ours, with a smile on your face because you are lucky enough to do it!

  1. That’s a funny story Karen. I have a stair story – not quite as good as yours though.
    We wandered off the beaten track on the Great Ocean Road because a map I had mentioned some shipwrecks we might be able to see. I sat in the backseat (child in the front because of travel sickness) and directed the GG. We went bush – along a dirt track but we knew we were at least leading to the coastline. We were about to turn around when we found a small sign that directed us down to the beach. There were 360 steps. I was okay going down but my knees really cracked a darkie at the walk back up. It took me three times longer than the others to reach the top. lol

    • Yikes, yes going up is a different story, if that were the case I wouldn’t have gone one step. My knees are pretty dodgy too courtesy of Netball at a younger age. I sure feel sorry for your 360 steps back up.. why is everything worth seeing down a flight or five of stairs!!

  6. Walking down stairs, with or without a backpack, is much harder on the legs than going up. At least you were in a beautiful place.

  7. Oh dear me- those steps! So long ago, it feels like another life but how to forget Positano 🙂
