Cinque Terre Italy


One of the "to do's" on the personal to do list we made on NYE, was to finally get the photos and memories of  our trip through Europe back in 2008 documented and printed. This 'little' task involves me sorting through literally tens of thousands of digital images (some of which I have not even looked at since they were taken in 2008) working a little photo shop magic on them,  getting them into lay outs including a little blurb about the special moment/s that relate to the place...

Yeah.  It is a pretty huge task given all the places we visited. When looked at as a whole, it was just too overwhelming.  And.  So.  Well, the years have passed and nothing has happened in any significant sense with most of the images.  Sadly the details are fading.

I am determined to have a genuine attempt at it is this year.  Though this year is already 3 months gone and I have only just started.

I have a fresh approach. I am breaking this task up in to small sections, mini tasks if you like. I am going to select certain places and focus on this smaller task and then once happy with that, will move on to the next place.

I was going to start with Paris. Of course.  Of all the images we took, these are the ones  I have visited more often than not over the years, however, I have decided to start in Italy.  The Cinque Terre to be precise.


It was one of the places on our 'must visit' list. We were not disappointed. Such a gorgeous little section of Italian coast line.  From the unique and colourful villages (each with it's own personality) to the tiered vineyards perched precariously on the steep coast line.  It was one very beautiful place.

Here are some of the 'postcards' I have developed for the album I am determined to curate for us this year xox

Wow! I've been to Italy twice but never made it here. What a pain, will just have to go back again. Third time's a charm, right?

The hard work will be worth it, especially with images as gorgeous as these. You'll have to share more as you work through them!

Hi darling!! Cinque Terre definitely are one of the most romantic and special places ever..you can also eat a lot of delicious typical food! Have you ever been to Capri? Or to Positano and Amalfi? (They're in the Southern part of Italy!). You really should go! I guess you could take dreamy pics..
Love.
