I’ve been meaning to write this post forever. Forever being since April. Jen from Pretty Little Grub nominated me for a Liebster award ages ago and it’s taken me this long to do it. Not because I don’t care, I just wanted the time to do it properly.
What is a Liebster award? It’s just a way for “newish” blogs to gain more followers, get to know other bloggers and get their name out there. Continue reading →
It’s time to fill up my closet (which is actually still mobile now that I think of it)! I’ve quit my job on a boat which means I can increase the size of my wardrobe! I shouldn’t, and probably won’t, because I’m in $aving mode, but the point is… I could.
No more, 1 black practical jacket, 1 pair of classic skinny jeans, a token hoodie and 1 pair of versatile heels. Boring. Continue reading →
After our beach day in Monterosso we went to our own hood for sundowners. Although it’s not as buzzing as Riomaggiore, Vernazza & Monterosso, it’s still got a lot of bars, restaurants and scenery. We hopped off the train, took some pics, then had some Prosecco at the nearest bar. There were quite a few restaurants on “the strip” to choose from, but naaaaah! We were going back to Billy’s!

On our last day in The Cinque Terre, (we were only there for 2 full days) we had a relaxing day of doing nothing. We took the train to the beach in Monterosso and laid there, and read and went swimming.

After we left Riomaggiore via ferry we stopped off in Vernazza. Vernazza dates back to 1028! Can you believe it! In the 1400’s they had major pirate raids, which decreased wine production. Damn pirates! According to Rick Steves, “Vernazza has the only natural harbor in the Cinque Terre. In the Middle Ages, there was no beach or square. The water went right up to the buildings, where boats would tie up, Venetian-style. Vernazza’s fishing fleet is down to just a couple of boats. Still, Vernazzans are more likely to own a boat than a car.” – Yup. There’s no room for cars in this town. Continue reading →
Some of you might have seen on Instagram that I posted a pic of my poor legs after I tormented them with exercise even though I hadn’t done any in months. Like 4 months.
