Semana Santa Part 2
Twelve weeks down, three to go! It is so amazing how fast time has gone here. It is so sad to think I leave Sevilla in less than two weeks. I finished my spring break in Cinque Terre, Venice, and Milan. I loved how relaxing Cinque Terre was! I went on a solo hike from Vernazza to Monterosso, which was absolutely beautiful! I laid on the beach for a while and explored both of the towns. Our Airbnb in Corniglia was awesome, so we hung out there a lot, especially on our balcony. The next day, we took the train to Riomaggiore and explored the town. My favorite part was climbing out on the rocks on the water to get a view of the city. Later in the day we went to Manarola to watch the sunset. It was absolutely beautiful! That was one of my favorite parts about Cinque Terre. We headed out the next day to travel to Venice. It was a long day of traveling, but we made it there that night. In Venice, I walked around for most of the day and saw a lot of gondolas. Also, I took a gondola ride! It was one of the most memorable parts of the trip (especially because it was free)! The next day we started our journey home and made a stop in Milan and saw the cathedral.
When we finally got home, it was Easter day! We went with our host family to a procession. It was so amazing to see how they celebrate Easter here. There were so many people and it was beautiful. It was a great Easter, and I still got to spend it with family. This is my last week of classes before finals, so it has been busy. I had three presentations this week and two papers due. This weekend I am going to Tenerife for a relaxing weekend before finals!
