Day 10-11 — Cinque Terre

Todays gelato flavors: Bacio and caramella. I’ve decided that I can no longer order cafe as they have all turned out to be sad compared to Grom. We’ve had gelato twice today, and may have it again before we’re through.

We are currently in the Cinque Terre and though this was suppose to be the relaxing part of our trip we’ve actually been very busy today. We started out this morning around 8:30 or so by hiking from Vernazza, where we are staying, to Corniglio, which is the next town down the line. It was a pretty strenuous hike at first but it evened out eventualy.

After a little wandering in Corniglia, we took the train down to Riomaggorie, where we had lunch and our second gelato of the day. We did the hike from there to the next town, Manarola, which is known as “via del amore”. It’s a light, easy, level walk.

We took the train from there back to Vernazza and spent a little time relaxing on the beach.

Tomorrow we head to Siena. And yes, I realize that I’ve completly skipped over Lucca, but I’m running out of Internet time.

Also, as I type this, I’m surrounded by cats. That is all.
