Cinque Terre in Terrible Pictures

Cinque Terre in Terrible Pictures

After a few hours of trains, we arrived in Monterosso!

Monterosso is the northernmost of five cities perched on the edge of the Mediterranean known as Cinque Terre. As our last major event we planned on hiking along the trails between the cities and relaxing on the sunny beaches of the Mediterranean. Let’s explore this last destination with the worst of my worst pictures.

1. Our hotel? Hotel Porto Roca? AMAAAAZING. This picture was taken at night, and I think we rotated it backwards.

2. SERIOUSLY… LOOK AT THIS VIEW (deeply overexposed)

If you’re going to stay in Monterosso, make sure to stay in OLD Monterosso. New Monterosso isn’t as quaint. Old Monterosso is connected to New Monterosso with a pedestrian tunnel.

3. The Pedestrian Tunnel – nothing in this picture is in focus.

I think I actually got a picture of Jen taking that picture of the Hotel Porto Roca sign up above. Please note, I am making a shadow puppet on her body – I am particularly proud of this.

4. The water was beautiful, here’s some water with some rocks in it with some trees around it. Pretty D- composition if I do say so myself.

Yes, our vacation was pretty excellent. Right up until the last day when I got food poisoning – presumably from some local fish. I threw up SO HARD that I blew a blood vessel in my eye. It was like sharknado out of my mouth except with local sea bass.

I asked Jen to document the event.


NEXT WEEK, I will post some good pictures of our 11 days in Italy!

        I know you birthed and raised him MomD, but I did live with him during his “Pranks on the Yellow House” Years. I know his true Darker D. I still don’t know if JennD is a good influence or not. Only time will tell…
