While I was staying in Le Grazie I took a train over to Cinque Terre. It was two days before a large storm moved in, so the sea was rough and the sky was cloudy. Riomaggiore was beautiful nonetheless. Being so close to raw nature always makes me appreciate life.

After visting Rome I rode the train North to the La Spezia region. I stayed there for one week in the small town of Le Grazie. My Airbnb hosts were wonderful (buongiorno Angela y Raimondo!), and I got to experience what I would consider a Mediterranean hurricane. It was an eventful week that started with a visit to the town of Portovenere.
After spending two weeks in Greece I flew to Rome, Italy. While I was there I visited the Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon, the Piazza Venezia, the Colosseum, and the Vatican.
After spending time in Sami I drove across the island to Argostolion, where I would spend the week for my 30th birthday. I hiked to the top of Mount Ainos, the tallest peak on the island, then spent my birthday on Petani Beach.
