It was love at first sight, a whirlwind adventure. It was long walks along the beach and late night churro dates. It was running carefree through castles and jet-setting every weekend. It was the experience of a lifetime, it was my semester abroad.
4 hikes. 5 towns. 8 people. 1 weekend.
This is the story of when we hiked Cinque Terre.
Want to hear about the most amazing 5 hours of my life? It starts with a rickety caravan, makes its way to a giant cavernous amphitheater, and ends with a pack of monkeys jumping from tree to tree, over our vans, trying to open the car doors because they could smell our food.
There’s a lot of things I wanted to do before the end of summer, including going on more hikes. My favorite hike (shoutout to Carlie) is called White Face, a hike full of climbing and sliding and AMAZING views. This was my last hike of the summer, and here are some pictures we took; though keep in mind nothing does justice to the real thing.
A place straight out of a movie. Beautiful, green, serene, simple and endlessly fascinating, the two days we spent in Moultonborough, New Hampshire were beyond anything I could have ever imagined.
I made a video documenting our weekend which you can watch here, but no video or picture would ever be able to do this place justice.
