My very first day in Liguria was one of wind and rain. As weather forecast had predicted such conditions for the whole three-day stay, seeing those heavy and threatening clouds made my hopes slowly fade away. But since I firmly believe in the law of attraction, I forced myself to think positive in order to somehow influence the atmosphere.
As soon as I got off the ferry I had taken in Sardinia‘s port Porto Torres to Genova, capital of Liguria region, I bought myself a train ticket to Levanto, town on the region’s southeastern coast from where it’s easy to visit the world famous Cinque Terre. Once in Levanto, I decided to enjoy one of the very reasons why Liguria is so famous for and take a scenic walk towards Bonassola. The road, built on the former railway, it’s now aptly devoted to pedestrians and bikers, and in the middle of which I was going to find the resort village La Francesca, my home for the next couple of days.
