Wordsmith Wednesday- Vertiginous

Standard

vertiginous

adjective
extremely high or steep.
“vertiginous drops to the valleys below”
relating to or affected by vertigo.

I first came across the word “vertiginous” when walking the Levadas of Madeira

Madeira Levada Walks are trails along the paths beside the Levadas (mini-canals).  The Levadas are situated on the steep sided slopes of the mountains and certainly induce vertigo when your eyes are drawn down into the valleys

About Noddfacrafts

I live in a small cottage in the Clwydian hills of North Wales. I left a career in Radiology management to pursue a country life of crafts, vintiquing, and wine tasting. I adore to travel but love to come home. I have a great husband and three fantastic children with three gorgeous grand children. Life is good but I believe it is also what you make it. My current mantra is "adventure before dementia"
