Planning a trip can always be a challenge, especially in another country.
I always start on-line, checking out travel sites and travel blogs,
then I reach out to friends who may have vacationed in that spot for hotel and
Our trip.....Cinque Terre, the five villages on the upper Western shore of Italy!
With our friends Tim and Sandra, we planned to hike, explore, take the train, eat fresh seafood,
and of course, sample the local wine.
This Hotel came highly recommended from friends and the reviews sounded perfect!
AND IT WAS...ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!
AND SO WAS THE SMALL ITALIAN FISHING VILLAGE OF CAMOGLI!
(Which could, TO SOMEONE NOT PAYING ATTENTION, be confused with the middle village in the Cinque Terre known as Corniglia)
Que Sera Sera! Whatever will be, will be!
As it turned out Camogli was the perfect spot for us to explore the Cinque Terre by train,
out of the busy touristy towns,
and return every afternoon for a refresher in one of the family friendly piazzas .
We witnessed the most incredible sunsets
before enjoying the catch of the day at a different restaurant every night
and strolling down the boardwalk back to our hotel for a nightcap!
Buona sera Tim and Sandra!
