Day 17 - Ivrea to Alessandria (100 km)
A pleasantly easy day across the rice fields of the Po valley, with scarcely anything bigger than a motorway bridge to climb until the final 10 km or so, and nothing worth shouting about even then. I disturbed large numbers of herons, cranes and in particular some kind of what I took, probably wrongly, for egrets as I passed. Warm, almost windless, hazy sunshine. If it was all this easy, everyone would do it.
