Dreaming of Cinque Terre

I think the only trips I'm able to plan in advance are summer and Thanksgiving. There's something about the timing of winter and spring break (not that we would take both off) that is too close to the holidays, that I can't muster up the energy to plan. So here I am, with spring break coming in two weeks, without a plan I'm committed to. I can't tell you how many times I've opened up the Delta window (we have miles with them) and plugged in NYC to....everywhere. But enough about my first world problems. In my google black hole, I found this amazing place in the Cinque Terre, which is one of the prettiest places I've ever been. Now that Clara is almost nine, I think it would be a blast to take her there and to walk between the villages. How beautiful is this spot, La Mala. Even if we don't make it this time, it's on the list for when I actually do plan ahead.


  1. We stayed in Vernazza in October 2010 and it was beautiful. We hiked between the villages and loved every minute. Last October, there was a terrible, devastating mud slide which wiped out the town of Vernazza. Rick Steves has updates about it on his website. A real tragedy. You could certainly stay in one of the other villages. Love your blog!

  2. thanks so much nancy--i had no idea. i looked up the status and it seems like a lot of businesses will be back beginning in may...and will be needing lots of support!
