Cinque Terre, from the archives

In beginning to clear out the folders in my website this lunchtime, which contain photos and files I have used on the site since its relaunch in 2006, I came across a set of photos from a trip to the Cinque Terre region of north-western Italy in 2004.

The most enduring memories of the holiday were that I hiked along the national park coast path from Manarola to Vernazza and back several times during my stay, and that the temperatures were scorching. I well remember the oven-like temperatures on the sea-side open train station platform at Manarola, and jumping gratefully into the sea at Vernazza, fully-clothed, after hiking there.

Here are a couple of my favourite photos from the set; the remainder are in my Flickr stream tagged “Cinque Terre“.
