Cinque Terre - Day two

Riomaggiore Day two of my adventure weeks ago. We took the train to the first town to start. I have to say, everyone on our train car were americans. It was weird. I heard more american accents in Italy then I have in the past couple of months. We met a lovely couple from northern california.

Riomaggiore So these towns are really small and there are a few little highlights in each of the towns. Mostly it is a lot of walking around in these cute towns that sort of come out of the side of the mountains. Also the priests wear the old style robes which my mom thought was adorable and kept trying to take pictures of them. I think it was sort of how I felt about the baby monks in cambodia. 

Cinque Terre - Day one

Since I have been so busy, I am making my posts shorter and more impactful. So Day One to start. Our flight was cancelled on Friday so I got the earliest flight out which was 6am on saturday morning. That was a tad painful since the airport is an hour away, but thankfully I found a cheap car service so he picked us up right at my flat and lovely drive out. Got to Pisa and went directly to the train station and we got the train that went directly to Monteresso. Somewhat nice train ride through Tuscany. I have to give the italians huge props for having cheap trains that run amazingly well and on time. That was a great thing. Like clockwork. 

MonterossoSo we get into Monteresso and that city is sort of split into two and our hotel was on the other side from the train station. So there are pretty much no cars, so you just have to walk it with your stuff. My mom and I of course made the mistake that there are two streets that get you to the other side of town, one is well paved and straight and one is up like 100 stairs and rocks. Guess one we took? But got some lovely pictures.
