Franca Walking - Five Photos From 'Deadly' Cinque Terre

‘Deadly’ Cinque Terre?

Well, deadly was certainly how it seemed to Franca as we scaled the hills & national park between Manarola & Corniglia.

Franca doesn’t have much of a head for heights, no more evidence of this was needed than that walk. Sheer drops, paths with no fences; equal amounts of terror when you’re 200, 300, 400ft up in the air with the midday sun burning through the single layer or clothing you are finally worn down to.

Guiding Franca in front of me, as her legs trembled, telling me sweet words of ‘arrrghh!’, ‘help!’, ‘wait, wait, wait!’ & ‘if anything happens, I love you SO much’ – was worthy of a ‘Helping Whilst Hiking’ Scout badge (should they ever create one).

Forever memorable for us that journey will be, but there were also many great things to see within the three of the Cinque Terre we visited; the many colours, the rolling hills, the streets of ups & downs.

Below I’ve picked out five of my favourite shots from our day in ‘Deadly’ Cinque Terre that may not necessarily find themselves in a travel magazine, but rather, match our tastes of art & photography.

And, because we weren’t lucky enough to find much art as we climbed up streets & down others, I chose these three pieces of street art/graffiti that I quite enjoyed (especially one *naughtyface*).
