Cinque Terre 2019


We visited Cinque Terre this spring with my parents--not our first trip, but our first time since moving to Italy. We drove down to a town near Cinque Terre and took the train in for a hike and ferry rides to explore the towns. The kids did much better than expected on the hike from Vernazza to Monterosso. Skye walked almost the entire 2.5 hours, minus a short stretch of being carried, which is a downright miracle as she can't be expected to walk the 5 minute walk to school, meaning we bike most days. We had delicious gelato, even better pizza, and stunning views. As usual I loved capturing the kids' enjoyment of discovering a new place, their unique personalities and habits. These images sum up about all the feelings from this awesome weekend vacation.
