Paris and Cinque Terre REDO!

****sorry if you are seeing this for a second time. I was working on another post for y'all and saw this actually posted on the day I prepped it, not today. Since I can't change the date I'm reposting it now for chronology. Thanks to those that have already read it, HI FROM ITALY!****

Ciao from Italy! We are enjoying our first few days in our second country, lots of beautiful sights and delicious food. Wanted to pop in and give you a snapshot of our Paris time and all bit of Cinque Terre. I'll be doing full recaps later, so this is a very picture heavy post.

During our day and a half in Paris we pretty much saw it all. The metro/train from Versailles to Paris was a bit of an experience, with a closed station but we figured it ou without killing each other. Le Hisband booked a night time bus tour of the city, with a boat ride up the Sein and an evening Eiffel Tower trip. It was a blast and we rode all the way to the top of the tower.















Our second day in the city we crammed as much sight seeing in as possible using their version of a bike share. It was great fun minus the rain. We made the best of it though, because when in Paris you see all of Paris. Which included: the Eiffel Tower, Arcs de Triumphe, Center of town, Notre Dame, the Louve and the Statue of Liberty.












Monday we were up at 430am to catch our flight to Milan. There was a short stopover which was fun because it gave us time to see the city. Then we trained to Monterrosso and from there we found our destination.








Cinque Terre is amazing, such a beautiful gem of a place. We love the views, fun houses and the food is divine. Our first day was originally planned for a chill two hour hike around our area and maybe the next town. 

Ha! Somehow two hours turned into all five lands six hours later. This is not a hike for the faint of heart, lots of steps (you start with 600 on the eternal stairmaster) and then keep going through all the hills. Thankfully the weather wasn't too cold and we made it to the end. 














There are only a few days left here and then off to Venice then our cruise. Not sure if il have wifi in the cruise so might not be able to pop in until it's over. If that's the case I hope y'all have a fabulous rest of the month :)!

What we ate in Paris and Cinque Terre!
























Ciao ciao!!!

Ugh! Take me back! I love Paris so much; sorry for the rain! And Cinque Terre is unbelievable. I can't believe some of the areas STILL don't have electricity! Then again, the terrain (and hence your hike) make it a little more believable! Enjoy the cruise!! Make today work, Rachel -CubicleCouture

We did Europe for 3 weeks and Cinque Terre was our favorite place hands down! We did all the towns in one walk too, but we started in town 4, walked to town 5, took the train to town 1 and then walked back through 1, 2 and 3 to town 4 where we started. So much fun! Even when Mr. fell off a cliff...not even joking, I wish I was...luckily his backpack got caught on a tree and he was able to hoist himself back to safety...glad you are having a blast!
