Great post! I remember hiking in Manarola. Beautiful views, but I was so out of shaped I gave up and turned around :( I wish I would have done more hiking in Cinque Terre it was so amazing.

I feel ya! It was definitely a tougher hike than I expected!

We visited Cinque Terre for our Honeymoon last year and did the what the locals call “the crazy hike” which is basically up and over, due to the paths being closed. the views were absolutely incredible. It took us 6 hours and had to sacrifice a pair of shoes but I would do it all again!

SherAugust 14, 2017 - 9:34 pm

Woah 6 hours – that is seriously impressive! It’s the difficult treks and the incredible views which make for the most memorable travel experiences

I have to admit, I’d never heard of Cinque Terra before. This sounds wonderful and not too far from the UK. We’re planning to take short breaks next year so this sounds ideal. Already booked Verona for Valentine’s Day but this could be a good choice for early Spring. I may be back with questions :-) ✌️❤️

SherSeptember 13, 2017 - 11:45 am

Ah jealous its so much closer for you guys in the UK! Verona is such a romantic choice for vday – that sounds amazing. Yes feel free to let me know if you have questions! Happy planning 😀

For the 3 day Cinque Terre Itinerary, when heading to RIomaggiore from Monterosso, do you take the train? Or hike?

SherMarch 7, 2018 - 12:26 pm

I recommend the train! we hiked a small portion but not the entire 5 villages – that would take like 10 hours of straight hiking! also check for 2018, but when i went last year the pretty “lovers lane” pathway from riomaggiore to manarola was closed due to landslides.

Is Rosetta Stone for Mandarin Chinese a Good Learning Tool?

A complete review of Rosetta Stone Mandarin Chinese, including a look at the table of contents and lesson plans. I cover highlights and shortcomings in this post.


BarbaraSeptember 30, 2017 - 5:23 pm

Esperanto was developed to be the language that would replace English over 100 years ago, and I never even heard of it until I got into polyglot groups. Personally, I don’t believe there will be one language and sincerely hope there won’t be. Too much of culture and national identity is wrapped up in languages. If anything, the opposite is true. More people are interested in being multilingual than ever and some are even interested in reviving old languages such as the ones spoken by natives on the North American continent. We already took their languages from them, I think we owe it to them to help restore them.
