Sadly, our last day in Italy arrived. We woke up super early to tackle the hiking trail along more of Cinque Terre. It was glorious! We hiked right alongside the ocean.
I enjoyed some incredible nature time there though the terrain was a little difficult. We walked by mountains, ocean, vineyards, small waterfalls and cute small towns along the path.
I am so proud of this picture...it's along the Via dell'Amore and I realized it would be the perfect spot for everyone to sit in a window along the coast! Unlike the day before, it was very busy! We bumped into Jazzy and her parents along the trail. We had a delicious lunch at one of the towns where we ordered fresh fruit juice...mmm pear.
I absolutely loved Cinque Terre and would recommend it to anyone who likes outdoorsy things. Again it is a tragedy that I can't upload pictures yet. It's a great side of Europe that is totally different from anything else and popular but not crazy busy.
We did hit a bit of a rush on the way back-- delayed trains with another to catch to Nice, France. Everyone barely made it on before the train started to move!
