Eurotrip 2009 || Day 12-Day 14 “This is the life”

leave a comment »


9:00 AM: Wake up to the church bells ringing, Riomaggiore (our riviera town) is beginning to stretch it’s legs.

9:30 AM:  Get the wet clothes from the day before off the clothesline outside while admiring our morning view.  Some fisherman are already back.

11:00 AM:  Get our beach gear together and make our way to Monterosso (other riviera town).

12:00 PM:  Figure our way out of the train station and go look for some grub to grub on.  Grab some pizza slices.

2:00 PM:  Rent an umbrella and 2 beach chairs and lay out until 5:00 PM.

5:30 PM:  Lag a bit more and look for dinner to eat.

6:30 PM:  People watch as we realize none of the restaurants are willing to open until 7, it’s just like that.

7:00 PM:  I ask the waiter what’s fresh today and he says “everything”.  I order whatever looks good.  It’s better than good.

8:30 PM:  Make our way back to Riomaggiore as the sun dwindles.

9:30 PM:  After some gelato, I take that picture you see right there.  Then its time for bed.

This, my friends, is Cinque Terre.
