I've always wanted to go to Cinque Terre. It's been a dream, and big bucket list item. It was a day trip though. Hold the gasps, criticism, and shock. Someone I met in my travels wanted to accompany me, and was willing to drive us from Milan area. Because I wasn't by myself, I couldn't be as thorough as I wanted originally. When other people join you, the experience is subject to their personality. After the first 30 minutes in the 4 hour journey that became 5 with a stubborn driver, I wish I went alone. I was able to get THE photograph I've lusted after, so , I left satisfied - despite seeing only one town.
