Travel Tuesday: Cinque Terre, Italy

Hi sweet things! : )

You might remember that I linked up with Helene last Tuesday for Travel Tuesday. If not, you can read about that here! That post was sort of the first part to this post.

Garrett and I studied abroad in Italy in college {2007}. 
We lived in Florence.
It was wonderful, minus the airlines losing my luggage.

While there, we took day and weekend excursions to places like Cinque Terre.
{Pronounced Cheen-qua Tare} I hope that helped! Cinque Terre means "The Five Lands" and is composed of 5 different villages. There are several walking trails between the five villages, one of them is called the "Love Walk." : )

Y'all, this place was magical. The most picturesque place I have ever seen. Colorful, against the water, and old. It was rainy the day that we were there, but that made it no less beautiful.

Like I said in my last post, I can't imagine the amount of pictures I would take if I could go back there now! I could spend days just photographing everything. 

Garrett had a video camera the whole time we were in Italy. He still hasn't edited the clips and put them together, and now I am convinced that he never will, but the clips are fun to look back on.

We did a ton of walking that day, and it was raining pretty hard. I was a genius and wore flip flops, which broke. I got pretty grouchy after that. Then my umbrella broke.
Here's a little clip of the place and of me complaining about my flip flops. I just laughed so hard at this.
And here's the evidence of my broken umbrella. This makes us laugh every time!

Linking up with Helene!
