Since this is likely one of our last big trips while living here in Europe, I made sure to take plenty of pictures (as usual) and we made ample stops for Italian gelato along the way. Despite some days and moments of intense rain, we still forged on, huddled under umbrellas and ducked into train stations, restaurants and museums for some time to dry out. I think one of our favorite days (despite the crazy rain that day!) was spent exploring the Cinque Terra. Five small ocean side fishing villages tucked tightly into the steep landscape along the Italian Riviera. Talk about picturesque! And to think they grow and harvest grapes for wine along these steep cliffs is simply amazing.
Well, that is just a taste of what's to come! I hope you are enjoying a peaceful weekend wherever you are in the world. Check back this week for more about some fantastic treasures in Italy. Better yet, sign up to the right on our page for email updates... Ciao! xo~Mollykid
