Manarola and Riomaggiore, Cinque Terre

On my trip to Cinque Terre I was staying in Vernazza. But of course I had to visit the other four cities as well. Corniglia and Monterosso I got to see when I was hiking. The other two I went to in one afternoon (each) […]

Five hours in Venice

There is something special about Venice. I had heard both good and not so good things about it before I went there. The not so good being that there are too many tourists. Because of that my expectations weren’t that high, but I didn’t want […]
