Nicole O'Neil Photography
I was deciding whether I would come online while on this trip and share photos or just stay disconnected for 10 days. I feel that I am LOVING not having a phone and checking emails, etc 50 times a day. However, I do have a business and do need to check my email every day or so in case clients contact me. I also can't wait to share at least a few photos from each place I go with everyone! So, I will do this blog to share a few photos each day or two. ENJOY!
This is above the entry to "Lover's Lane" which connects the first two villages of the Cinque Terre (Five Villages). There are locks everywhere (you will see when I get home and put all photos up!). People are supposed to put a lock up along the path to symbolize their love. They are everywhere and some are even engraved or have the names written on them with dates. It was a beautiful walk along the cliffs and above the ocean.
A picture of Manarola, the second of the five villages. There was a place to walk down where they put their boats in the water to get this great view of the marina and houses above. The walk through the village was also wonderful. The next two photos are also from this same village.
Corniglia, Village three. All the boats are lined up along the road leading to the marina.
YES, I will be posting a lot of food pics in the end. The food is AMAZING and so, I must take pics and share them with you all!
Oratorio dei Neri in Monterossa, the fifth and largest village.
