I will let this post be more about pictures because they pretty much explain themselves. I went to one of the most beautiful places that I may ever go in my lifetime.
I left Firenze by bus at 8. I arrived at Riomaggiore at 10. I traveled by ferry between the cities of Cinque Terre, except when I took a walk down lovers lane between the first and second city (I did not have a lover on the path, so it was a little boring).
I ate lunch at a very fresh seafood restaurant. My fish was not de-boned, it was so fresh. At the final city, I swam in the Mediterranean Sea and laid on rocks in the sun, surrounded by crabs and sea urchins.
Our group did not get back to Firenze until 10. Tired does not begin to describe how much I whined on the walk back home.
