My mom and her sister, my Aunt Gail, came to visit at the very end of the school year. We had a GREAT time together! I enjoyed calling the two of them le sorelle throughout our travels -- meaning, the sisters. :P
We had some time in Milan and they went to Lake Como one day (Varenna and Bellagio). Once I finished up the school year, we then had a lovely travel through Italy to: Cinque Terre, Florence, a day-tour to Siena, San Gimignano, and Pisa, as well as a couple nights in Venice.
I'm going to attempt to get caught up this week... so, let's begin with our time in magical CINQUE TERRE!!
We stayed in Manarola. I love, love, love the apartment we had. It is two floors, has two balconies, a sea view, and two bedrooms/bathrooms. It is a quite a hike to get up to the apartment... but worth it. : ) The views are absolutely incredible:
