Cinque Terre does not have Italy's best beaches, but does have some very comfortable rocks. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The first towns in Cinque Terre—Monterosso and Vernazza—date to the 11th century. The other villages came over the next several hundred years; one of their main purposes was to protect the area against attacks from the Turks. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
While Cinque Terre today is a major tourist destination, this stretch of coastline was in decline from the 1600s until the 19th century, when a railroad was built connecting the Cinque Terre villages to Genoa and La Spezia. But the railroad only helped temporarily. After a brief lull in the difficulty of making a living here, the region again began sinking into poverty. Many locals emigrated in the late 19th century and early- and mid-20th century. Tourism only began developing in the 1970s.
@dollyparton said it best... "you'll never do a whole lot unless you're brave enough to try" I couldn't agree more. .
For a first time in a long time, I had a full Saturday free in @visitmusiccity, so I decided why not do a staycation and visit the @officialcmhof It's been years since I've been and the museum has expanded. There's a great exhibit on @lorettalynnofficial which includes showcasing her presidential medal of freedom (super cool) along with exhibits on @shaniatwain and @thetimmcgraw@faithhill I took time to study various instruments and loved the videos of country music through the years. I walked away with a more profound love for #nashville and the roots of #cou#countrymusic. .
I took some shots on my stories for you to follow today. Let me know what you think... .
Volviendo de visitar por primera vez @pasillodehumo y es una cosa espectacular.
Molotes de plátano, hoja santa rellena de queso y tlayuda con tasajo y chorizo.
Todo eso nos hubiera hecho mucho daño de no se por el carrito de mezcales que llegó a la salvación.
Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.
Was out and about in Ireland walking down the Giant’s Causeway which took about 10 min from the top. Def one of the most touristy spots in Ireland but went for the dope hexagonal rocks and not gonna lie had already seen something similar on the black sand beaches of Iceland which were insane so wasn’t as impressed but realized my pants matched the rocks so that was fun.
