cinque terre

View World Trip 2016 on wm oe's travel map.

We took a train to florence and spent the night. I was going to get up early and go to the gallery before getting our train but it was raining and i was tired so it didnt happen. We arrived at la spezia and got our train tickets to the 5 villages that make up cinque terre, we got off at the first and took the very long steep way up.....missed seeing the short way! Very cool colourful sight. We then went to the last village and had an easier walk around....a great stone carving of neptune at one end of the beach. The villages are only a few minutes apart buy train and the train leaves about every hour so we could fit in one more village..but the train door wouldnt open so we couldnt get off......damn but we might have missed our next train if we had stopped. Next stop pisa. We had about an hour at pisa, got a taxi to take us to the tower, wait while we took some pics and take us back to thr station. It was great to see a tiny bit of pisa and the tower.....so worth it

Hi Wendy and Travis

Have been meaning to comment for ages. Sounds like you are having such an adventure seeing so much and the odd hiccup will just add to your adventure and give you a laugh when you look back on it.
Am sure you would have enjoyed Rome and Greece and I think you are now in Egypt for a while - keep safe. I imagine it will be a bit of a culture shock there. Hope you are both well and having a great time. Looking forward to more photos and posts. Carol xx
