Cinque Terre, Italy: Hiking, Medusae, and More Laundry


“Keep climbing,” Laura said, looking back at my nearly dead and 100_0764dehydrated walking corpse. “Look at this great view.”

When I finally reached the peak, the look down onto Vernazza was one of the most amazing views I had ever seen, making the hike worth every breath, every droplet of sweat, and every near heart attack.

Reaching the small Italian fishing village, we donned our bathing suits in much the same way most of the residents do, right there on the rocks along with others. We jumped into the chilly Mediterranean Sea.

“Yikes,” screamed Laura, “somethings got me!”   We hastily scrambled up the sharp rocks out of the water. The locals told us to pee on it. It was quite a learning experience.
