November 02, 2013 – Cinque Terre
November 5, 2013 § 2 Comments
My dream hike in Cinque Terre has finally happened. Well, only a part of it, since the coastal trails from Vernazza to Riomaggiore were closed, so my friends and I were only able to hike from Monterosso to Vernazza. It was a worthy trip though, and definitely more challenging than I had expected. 2 hours of ups and downs on rugged paths and stairs that never seemed to end…I’ll never complain about the 99 steps I have to take to get home again. Eventually we reached (or so we thought) the village of Vernazza, pictured here, and it was just…breathtaking (literally as well, as I had been short of breathe from that long hike). I never thought such a place would exist on Earth. No blue skies as the clouds greeted us all day, but I was more than satisfied to have accomplished one of my life goals. I ❤ Cinque Terre!
