Cinque Terre

Friday, April 27, 2012

DH and I took a road trip overnight.
We spent a night in a spectacular hotel in the beautiful small historical city of Lucca, in the Tuscany region.
I checked Booking.com before we left and got a $180 room for $99 (actually Euros but I tend to just think of them as dollars) which included an amazing full breakfast buffet- including Mimosas! emoticon

Then we drove over to the coast to the Cinque Terre, where we hiked a tiny portion of the trails and then took a boat ride to see more of the 5 villages.
The towns are built into the mountains so I bet I went up and down thousands of steps today. I took a bath and 2 ibuprofen tonight- hope my hips don't punish me tomorrow.

My pics will never do it justice so here's a link:

I always use a moisturizer with sunscreen and wore a long sleeve tshirt but forgot to do my chest so I got a bit of a sunburn there.
DH (who rarely will use suncreen because he says it makes him feel slimy) has a red face. The sun was brilliant and it was a perfect 75*F.

We are having a blast!
It's almost 10 here now- I need my beauty sleep!
