A Travellerspoint blog


sunny 30 °C

The transit from San Gimignano to Cinque Terre included a night in Pisa, due to accommodation not being available when we wanted it. Let me just say that if it wasn't for a little tower, I doubt people would visit. The tower is quite lovely, but it's crazy that people are still allowed to climb it. This is one tower Jim was happy not to climb (or even stand on the underside).
The day was definitely less than our best. It included some car problems, street closures in Central Florence due to a race when trying to return the car, heat (have I mentioned I hate the heat), a "helper" at the station, a very stuffy, full train, a very ordinary hotel in a less than savoury area, and a wrong turn on our walk to the tower which took us quite a few extra, uninteresting, hot, blocks. Oh well, these are the realities of the unknown. Have to take the bad with the good. Nothing bad actually happened, just a frustrating and tiring day. Hopefully the only one.

By now I hope you are enjoying the delights of Cinque Terre. Imagining you perched on the coast, looking out to sea, with a glass of wine in your hand :) The bad days just make the good days seem even better.
