We then traveled to Pisa and saw the leaning tower and took some goofy pictures, like all the other tourists.
We went to the Cinque Terre National Park for 4 days and went hiking, swimming, and jumping off of cliffs into the beautiful Ligurian Sea.
The view from above the town Monterosso during one of our first days in Cinque Terre. This picture was taken after about a 3 hour hike south from Levanto, the town where we set up base camp at "Camping Acqua Dolce".
Above is Gordon and I trying to stay cool and not get sunburnt while hiking down to Moterosso, the first of the five small towns of the Cinque Terre region. A staricase that we were fortunate enough to hike DOWN.
Above is a picture of us overlooking the beach in Nice, France and it is beautiful. It is where Tina Turner has one of her houses, but she must not have been in town because we didnt see her ;)
A picture of me under a palm tree at the top of a castle overlooking Nice. Gordon bought me a beautiful glass handmade necklace that I love... he is so wonderful and romantic.
The Port of Nice. I think we saw Paris Hilton & friends on her extravagant yacht.
Me playing on a bungy gymnasium that the people of the Mediterranean love, they were on almost every popular beach that we saw.
A war memorium in Grosse, France. I was rubbing his worn metal pointing finger for good luck.
Grosse is where fragrance became very popular and a main economic focus because of the favorable growing conditions of herbs, flowers, etc. We went to a museum and bought some lovely fragrances.
We stopped in Marseille for a few hours while waiting for a connecting train in the direction of Barcelona and found a "Tango Street". This was a large courtyard between two old theatre buildings where the public and professionals were invited to dance on waxed cobblestone to a live DJ.
