One More Half Day in Positano

For those of you who followed through our crazy 3 weeks trip through snowy Switzerland, storybook-like French town/village of Colmar and Eguisheim, tulip blooming Netherland, desert trekking in Sahara, colorful island of Procida, and southern Italy Matera to the Amalfi Coast, we finally came to the last installment of our trip 😦 Don’t be sad,…

Matera Day Trip to Castelmezzano and Alberobello

Good morning Matera, it was finally clear sky! Early in the morning, we walked to Chiesa di San Pietro Caveoso as the sun light up the stone colored Sassi. We walked the S-curve road hugging the cliff of Matera and on the other side, I can see clearly the small canyon underneath the Sassi. The sun…

The Sassi of Matera

After our wonderful breakfast, we checked out and rolled our luggage up those stairs to wait for the bus…thinking to save from the transfer cost of €15. We waited, waited and waited for over half an hour and the bus did not show up! We were getting nervous and a lady at the bus stop saw us…

Procida: Just Like in Windows Wallpaper

Last Stop of Europe 2015: Milan

Goodbye Vernazza, goodbye Cinque Terre! The last stop of our trip – Milan where we’ll be flying home. We took the 7:32 am train from Vernazza to Milan via Rapallo, it was a Sunday so plenty of seats in the local train without the morning rush. In Rapallo, there were only 2 platforms so it was pretty…

Vernazza, Porto Venere, and a Big Surprise!

After spending 2 nights in Manarola, our last night will be at Vernazza; I split the 3 nights among those two villages because of the beautiful night photos that I have seen and I couldn’t decide which one to stay at so why not both! One downside of switching hotel is that check out usually…

Exploring 4 of the 5 Cinque Terre Villages

Good morning Manarola, we were probably one of the few people who are awake in Manarola! View from our balcony – the village was so quiet! We got ready and went downstairs for breakfast (included), it has good varieties of breakfast items. After breakfast, our official full day of exploring Cinque Terre began! First, we…
