Round-the-World Holiday, June 23 - July 28, 2003

Us in Vernazza - click to enlargeI hate my camera. You hold the button down halfway to focus, then all the way to take the picture. Nobody seems to get that though, so whenever I ask a random person to take a picture of us they hear the focussing noise and think that it's been taken. So this is me leaning forward like a dork to make sure they'd pushed it down all the way. This is also the only shot from Corniglia, the next little village which is perched crazily high up on the mountain. I wasn't such a fan of this one.

Snook eating focaccia in Manarola - click to enlargeThe fourth village is Manarola, which was another favourite. We got some amazing focaccia for lunch here.

Feet - click to enlargeWe ate our lunch sitting on the sea wall with our feet dangling in the water.

Manarola - click to enlargeThe Cinque Terre area is a national park with hiking trails that connect them. You've gotta be pretty hardcore to do them though, which is why we stuck to the train. We did venture up one far enough to take a few more pictures of Manarola.

More Manarola - click to enlargeOne last shot of Manarola. I don't have any pictures from the fifth village, Riomaggiore, as we weren't there for long. We were just too tired. We went back to La Spezia and caught a late train to...

Florence - click to enlargeFlorence, the setting of A Room With a View. Here's my first view of the Duomo.

Companile - click to enlargeMy favorite new Italian word is "companile". It means "bell tower". Here's the Duomo's.

Piazza della Signoria - click to enlargeHere's a view of the Piazza della Signoria, which is where the statue of David used to stand (before they moved it inside). There are still lots of cool statues outside though.
