Cinque Terre, Italia (my favorite place in Europe)

Cinque Terre is a town on the north western coast of Italy with 5 villages. We stayed in the most southern village called Riomaggiore. There are amazing hiking paths along the coast of Italy that goes to each of the villages. It is a 5 hour hike from the most southern village to the most northern village. Me and Christina made it to right outside the 3rd. I definitely want to come back here after college when I backpack through Europe and do this entire hike. The views were absolutely beautiful!

The Pesto from Cinque Terre and Focaccia bread is one of the things Cinque Terre is known for and is absolutely delicious. It is such a cool little town. There are a lot of young back packers who come here. We met a girl and a guy who just graduated from College and are doing a 3 month world trip. They have been all over Europe for the past 5 months and are going to Asia in about a week. It was so cool to talk with them. I would love to do that after college and go to Australia and New Zealand as well. This is Blaire and Lexie who both go to UNC Chapel Hill!

The town, Riommagiore, that we stayed in Cinque Terre. The views, feel, people, hikes, food everything about this town was incredible. I would absolutely love to come back here. Nothing is better than the mountains and ocean combined!
