... not to have lunch, which we didn't, and we had a long day of walking ahead of us. Today was the day we wanted to do the Cinque Terra walk between the five villages. The five villages are, from north to south, Monterosso (the largest town, where we are staying), Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola (known to be the most romantic of the five villages) and Riomaggiore. They are all connected by train, but there is a sea side trail that is famous the world over for ...
Well we are now in holiday mode real sleep in -no alarm, no rush and got out of bed one by one from 6.45.

There were taxis waiting, so we grabbed one to the train station, since we were short on time, it was a 30 minute walk, and was projected to be about 90 degrees ...
... a tiny bit too cold for us Queenslanders. We have explored all 5 of the gorgeous towns. They are all very pretty and each have their own charm. The walks have been nice, not too challenging, but we are going on a 4 hour hike tomorrow, so hopefully I am not speaking too soon!! We have a lovely place right in the old town of Monterosso.
