Today was my first day on my own. I took a train from Torino southeast, to the Cinque Terre national park, on the Italian Riviera.
This post looks different than my others… It’s got no pictures. That’s because I’m pressed for time. I decided it was better to make a post than not make a post, because I want to keep you updated. Tomorrow I head out at 8:30 to hike the trails.
I’ve planned a very busy couple of weeks. More or less, 3 days here, 3 days Venice, 3 days Florence, 3 days Rome. Right now I’m a bit intimidated and thinking maybe it’s too fast.
The good thing is, after Rome I have 8 days in Naples and another week in and around Campobasso. So it’ll be good to have some time to settle down and relax.
But for now, it’s go time, I have lots to do. There’s still work to be done, train tickets to book, hotels to book, and I need to think about where I’m going after Italy. I’m going to try to handle it all while still seeing all the important things!
If I was traveling for a few weeks, I think it’s normal to have very little downtime. But since I’m planning on traveling for 4 months, I need to make sure to schedule down time for myself.
I’ll learn as I go the best way to do this, I guess.
Sorry for the disorganized, image-less post. I thought it would be a good idea to record my thoughts on this first night. But now I have to go to sleep.
