LikeLike That picture is absolutely beautiful! LikeLike Thanks Kim! It’s from my travels in Italy this summer. 🙂 LikeLike Love it! I went there many years ago to write, the main character in my novel comes from one of these fishing villages, so I decided I had to hang out for a couple of weeks, did you stay in one of the villages? LikeLike We stayed in a small beach town called Diano Marina, which is about a 2,5 hour drive from La Cinque Terre. We would have liked to visit it more but there was nowhere to leave our car and parking just wasn’t happening so I took this shot from the road to the village. I hung my arm off the cliff and snapped at least 4 times hoping that one would be nice. It is a very beautiful village though. 🙂 LikeLike There are 5 villages and they are all gorgeous, I came by train, as it’s true, there are no roads in the villages (unless you drive a three wheeled mini truck) 🙂 The only parking spaces in the village I stayed in, Manarola, were for the fishing boats at night, that they hauled up the rocks from the sea on a hydraulic winch, captivating to watch. Time to dust off that novel perhaps. 🙂 LikeLike Yeah, we got tired of waiting for the barrier to go up to park in the only parking spaces after 25 minutes. 😦 LikeLike Didi, we seems to choose the same holiday places as we do places to live! We were staying about 40 minutes from Cinque Terre. The first time we came we rented an apartment in the highest of the 5 villages and did everything by train. This time we hired a tiny motorboat and did it all by sea. Heavenly! I recommend it! LikeLike I will have to go back differently in hopes to witness the beauty of Cinque Terre up close and personal. 🙂 LikeLike Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
