I am now by myself in Europe. Matt and Lyle left last Thursday morning. I haven’t had regular wifi, so this post is a little overdue.
From Rome, I caught a train to the tiny Italian town called Manarola along the northwestern coast. Manarola is in a string of five small towns that make up Cinque Terre. I spent three nights and two days here.
After a full 11 hours of train travel, I arrived safely at my hostel and walked around the town a little bit to get some night shots of the town.
The next day, I woke up and went on a hike to the two neighboring towns, Corniglia and Vernazza. One of the trails was closed and I missed the detour signs so I was definitely in the middle of nowhere for a bit. But that’s fine, because the views were spectacular.
On my last day in the Cinque Terre, I visited the other two towns: Riomaggiore and Monorosso. The heat was miserable but its hard to complain when I’m surrounded by the coast of the Mediterranean.
After Cinque Terre, I am leaving Italy for Switzerland. The next two nights I’ll be in Bern.
