I finally got to travel to Europe a few months ago, just before their summer ends. And one of the highlights of my trip was taking a trek to the UNESCO World Heritage Site – the Cinque Terre that is located in the Liguria region of Italy and the rugged part of Italian Riviera. Cinque Terre – which stands for “The Five Lands” – is composed of the five villages: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore.
It is one of the most wonderful treks I had. The trudge of the hike going from village to village was more than worth it not only because we got to taste the sweetest grapes when we passed by some vineyards. And big thanks too to our amazing guide from trekguyd for leading us to the track that got magnificent views and there’s a path where blackberry shrubs are blooming with fruits and fig tree; it was the first time I’ve seen and tasted them – they are so overwhelmingly luscious. Not enough words to describe the experience, I can only hope I could get back there.
