You read about Jennifer Harris’ dream vacation in the August 2009 Enlightened Traveler column; now check out Jennifer’s own photos and diary of her trip.
The trail to Corniglia from Manorola is a steep, winding trek, covering acres of terraced vineyards and forested trails. It is no walk in the park, meaning the trail is moderately strenuous, but the views can only be described as breathtaking. Not to be underestimated, Tim and I hiked along the trail with our companions, plodding along like mules in a canyon. At every opportunity, we stopped to just take in the scenery and the blue skies above us. Sometimes there’s a moment within a moment where you have to just be, taking note of where you are and being totally aware of your surroundings. It was magical.
