This is the second field trip that we had in the beginning of the semester; it is the first field trip that I joined in the FIT in Florence program, which was very exciting and fun!
I woke up in the early morning, got dressed, wore sneakers (of course sneaker because of the hiking), and sun screen; all prepared! Here we go! The weather is different than I thought, a little bit cool, but it is the best for hiking. (Sorry for the beach lovers )
We met up at Grand Medici Hotel, Mr. Lozzi told us things that we need to be careful during the trip, he gave us some safety advice, which is really helpful. Our journey begins. Everybody had a nice nap in the bus… thanks to our amazing bus driver’s driving skills for making this trip safe and comfy, haha.
Cinque Terre is even better than the pictures I saw on Google. Although the weather that day was kind of cloudy and dark, you can still see how beautiful and cute the little towns are. The things that were special and impressed me the most are the colorful buildings they have, they are everywhere, and I think they are the symbol of Cinque Terre. Besides that, there is a splendid view of the sea and the mountains with this nice, cloudy weather. I knew it was going to be fun!
Later on, several other girls and I started to hike, with the leading of Mr.Lozzi. We spoke to each other while we were hiking, sometimes took a rest together, enjoyed the view of the sea and the little breeze which was perfect. There was a moment that I felt like this is life, life should be like this! Work hard, play hard, enjoy the most of it, enjoy nature! In this way, we got to know each other more. When you’re hiking, it is a work out, you start to love the feeling of being sore, and sweaty (in very little situations haha), it makes you happy!
I joined the half of the hiking routine (that’s enough for me ), and then I met several other girls on the beach. It’s a rocky beach, view is, again, amazing! I sat on the rocks that were the closest to the sea, the waves hit the rock, it was kind of scary, but it was so much fun! This is the moment that you feel the power of nature.
Cute towns, cute alleys with beautiful flowers and well decorated houses, and gelaterie (of course). I ended my trip with an amazing pasta mixed with sea food! This is the definition of “a nice trip” !
