Walk between the 5 Villages, Cinque Terre, Italy

What up! I'm still here in Florence and trying to catch up on photos from last week. Here are the pics from the BIG walk that Ans and I did on his birthday between the 5 Villages, from Riomaggiore to Manarola to Cornagilia to Vernazza and finally to Monterosso. It was SO awesome, and we made a whole day out of it. We finished at Monterosso and passed out on the beach.

During the hike we ran into Bex and her friends from Waterloo again, as well as the Canadian friends we made in Nice. Also we ran into the super awesome Montana girls several times, and after a near memory-card-almost-washed-away-by-the-meditteranean moment, we chilled out and ate some pizza for lunch. Good times!! Then we ended up in Monterosso after seeing literally a gazillion cats along the way (sweeet). Ans and I passed out on the rocks for a bit before getting soaked by a wave, and then got some dinner for Ans's birthday.

Random Lemon farmer dude who set up shop as we were walking by!! It was SO funny, he put lemons in the fence hole that was cut out, put up a Milan flag, and brought out a radio and a basket of wine, lemon juice and lemoncello. We had a shot of lemoncello and a lemon juice that he freshly squeezed for us. He was trying to get us to drink Grappa too... haha so funny and random.
