We spent a week during spring break in an amazing cottage overlooking the Gulf of Poets near La Spezia in Northern Italy. During our time there, we hiked (including hiking from town-to-town in the Cinque Terre), collected shells, swam, ate lots of gelato, counted lizards, and cooked many wonderful meals. Legs and Metz enjoyed the Italian sea breeze, but not so much the Swiss highway tunnels. The cottage had a wonderful garden and wildflowers growing on the trails surrounding it and so we had multiple bouquets every night.
