I took the train from Florence, stopping for 30 minutes in Pisa for a picture, and then on to Riomaggiore. Cinque Terre, also known as the Five Lands runs from Riomaggiore to Monterroso. There is a walking path that overlooks the Mediterranean and goes from village to village. Vernazza is perhaps the most beautiful of the 5. I stayed in Riomaggiore which was a simple village but beautiful with its many colored houses and businesses. The train runs frequently between the villages all day until about midnight. This area is without a doubt the most beautiful place that I have ever been.

- After getting my first passport in 2006 and traveling to climb Kilimanjaro in Tanzania my life changed. I began the process of getting rid of all my possessions and traveling the world. Traveling to over 100 countries and all 7 continents, hostels have been my home. This "new life" has taught me what is important and it was NOT accumulating money or possessions. Traveling is the best education. I hope my blog will encourage others to travel. My World Tattoo was a way for me to express my PASSION FOR TRAVEL.
