Cinque Terre was a new destination for me on this visit to Italy. Cinque Terre literally means Five Towns. This is a great destination for hikers as you can walk / hike between the 5 towns along the Ligurian coast. The 5 towns are Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manorola and Riomaggiore. There is also a railway connecting the three towns in case you don't want to hike or simply can't finish it all. This area is also known for great seafood and pesto.

Welcome to my first blog! For those of you who do not know me I am a travel agent with Villa Journeys. We specialize in vacation villas and condos. It’s a fun job and an even better excuse to travel. Travel is a great way to understand the world, other cultures and customs as well as learn more about yourself and have a little fun in the process. My travels have taken my to 5 continents (still have to get to Australia and Antarctica). I have backpacked through Europe, taken a ship around the world (courtesy of a great college program called Semester at Sea), driven across the US and soaked up the sun on many Caribbean islands. Through this blog I will share my journeys.
