Drying Laundry in Cinque Terra – Somewhere In Time.

By Posted in - Big Trip & Europe & Italy & Photo Journal & Photography Posts & Photos & Somewhere In Time on December 3rd, 2010

Somewhere in Time is a photo from around the world. Enjoy!

Walking in Cinque Terra is like sleep walking. Every corner, ever nook looks like it was pieced from the pages of the most beautiful travel magazine you have ever laid eyes on. It is the Italy you dreamed about, lusted over and imagined in your head for the last decade. And yes, it is that good. Hiking Cinque Terra was definitely a turning point for me in Italy. Getting lost in the small streets, stumbling upon old cemeteries and swimming in the lightweight Mediterranean was surreal. Right around the time I took this picture I had that realization that I had finally truly arrived in Italy. That I was there, the big trip was an actual reality and instantaneously I knew I would never want to leave. Then I started looking at apartments.

Cinque Terra is crumbling, beautiful and every walkway seems to glow. Could I ask for anymore?

Go. Do the hike. You won’t regret it.

    Bethany – Cinque Terra has been on my wish list for many years and there’s something very emotive about a photo like yours which makes me want to drop everything and go. Lovely.

    Its good to see clothes still being “air dried” rather than tumble driers using energy and adding to CO2 emmissions

      Hi David,
      Thanks for commenting! As I discovered in Italy, most families don’t have dryers. Even at the farm we had to air dry everything and it took usually about 2 days so you had to plan your laundry accordingly. But when you get used to it, you don’t really miss having a dryer. @David G,
