19:17 – Chiocchio – approximately 15km south of Florence
At a crossroads, our guides Matteo and Andrea are laying out our final option for the day.
“From here we have two choices: we can take the flat road back to Firenze or the climb back up to Chiocchio for a spectacular view of the sunset”
We all look at each other.
I decide to start the decision making process, “well if it’s going to be a nicer view, then maybe the climb would be worth it..?”
Matteo smiles, “OK then, that’s decided. The climb to Chiocchio it is”
The group looks at me. It seems that I have decided for everyone. Now I really hope it’s worth it…
