After being in school for a month now I'm missing these adorable seaside villages in Italy 🌊💕 // We finished our week long stay in Italy in Cinque Terre, an incredible town consisting of 5 seaside villages. It was great getting to relax here after a long week of busy sight seeing throughout Italy. Despite the giant rainstorm that came through our first night there the sun came out the next day and we were able to do a hike on the trail that connects all 5 villages. We took the train from Corniglia (where we stayed) to Manarola (the next town over) where we continued to consume our weight in gelato and bask in the sun. After an afternoon in Manarola we hiked back to Corniglia. It was an incredible hike: after breaking through some vineyards on the hillside you get a birds eye view of Manarola on your left and Corniglia on your right. Overlooking Manarola there was a free lemonade station with a little book to sign - it was a refreshing break and it was so cool to see where everyone traveled from and why they were there (one person wrote "we got engaged!"). After hiking along the coast a little longer, we made it back to Corniglia, where we were greeted with the town's church and one of the many giant plants that grow there (that one in particular was taller than me!). I have many more pictures to come from my study abroad experience so far, so keep checking back here to see all the cool places I've been to!
Unrelated note for the Filipino people (lol): If you're annoyed by 'lodi,' 'werpa' and 'petmalu' but all for 'shookt,' and 'lit', please take a moment and examine your (probably) classist and purist views on language and usage. Also everything changes so live and let live, orb!
It’s National Farmers Day! My sincere gratitude towards all the farmers around the world who works day and night under all kinds of weather to grow food for us! Without you I can’t imagine to live. Thank you! #nationalfarmersday
