cinque terre trip – great company, sunny weather, breathtaking scenery, yummy-licious food 🙂 what’s not to love?
Upon reaching Riomaggiore on our 1st day, we checked into our apartment. Little did we know that the apartment was only reachable by MANY MANY STEPS. Check out the top left photo of carolyn completely dead from all the climbing. haha…the view from our apartment was definitely worth the climb though.
We decided to take a stroll on Via dell’Amore and then train from Manraola to Monterosso. Because we love Monterosso SO MUCH, we went there on our 2nd day in cinque terre as well! The sun and sea made us really cheery. No sand on the beach though, only stones which hurt so badly that we had to hop our way into the sea. See the photo of the super hot lady? Well… the focus was supposed to be Zaki and Carolyn. Try spotting them! haha.. AND i would love to have a romantic dinner anytime by the cliff.
After tanning and kayaking at Monterosso on the second day, we went on to hike from Monterosso (Town #5) to Vernazza ( Town #4). The initial hike was an endless uphill climb, but after getting through it, the hike seemed a lot easier. perhaps due to the fact that we decided to start singing. Lady Gaga, Backstreet boys, Madonna, etc. Awesome fun 🙂 even funnier when other hikers started commenting stuff such as…
Us: Let’s sing Paparazzi!!
Hiker A: NOO. I don’t like that song. Sing other Lady Gaga song!!
Us: “You are my fire. The one i desire…”
Hiker B: “Didn’t you see a “no backstreet boys sign”?”
Last trip in italy before the end of exchange. Glad it was one of the best trips ever 🙂
