June 12-13: Vernazza, Cinque Terre – Gianni Franzi

Rick Steve’s suggested a “splurge” on lodging in Vernazza in his guidebook. ( I’m so glad I took him up on his suggestion.  This place looks absolutely tantalizing and a great place to serve as home base while hiking the Cinque Terre coastline trails!)

Well that covers Italy my friends.  Oh my goodness – I can hardly wait to actually visit these beautiful places!

Next we’ll venture back into France (near the first timeshare I will be staying at the beginning of the trip) and will be working my way back to Paris to complete the full circuit.  From Paris I will catch an airplane to Scotland and continue my adventure but will have to say Au Revoir to my traveling companions, Jack & Debbie.

I don’t know about you, but looking at all these places and seeing this food is making me very hungry!  I am going to take a break from my posting and fix myself something Italian for lunch!  Arrivederci!
