Take Me Away.

I'm still in Dallas, but a few weeks ago Sylvain Louradour wrote me requesting a photograph of one of my favorite places for her website, Your Lovely Places. I sent along this one, of the trail high above the coastline in Cinque Terre, Italy. I loved hiking this path from one village to the next, travelling through orange and olive groves, meeting stray cats along the way, and even being invited to sample some local vinyards' wine.

Take a look at some other very lovely places.

From Sandra Juto (of smosch fame), Kaufbar, a bar & café in Berlin - "a truly
relaxed and cozy place that I think of every day and wish to go back to soon."


Via Vincent, le quartier de prenzlauerberg à Berlin.


From Gary, La Luna Hostel in Montezuma, Costa Rica.
"Set away on a steep hill,
with an even more isolated veranda,
con hamaca,
overlooking the bay.
Bliss."

Cinque Terre it´s really beatiful...it looks like Rio de Janeiro, the favelas from Copacabana.
Do you know Friuli Venezia Giulia? it´s lovely!!!

Oh Cinque Terre, my most favorite place in the whole world. I went there when I was single and want to go back with my husband someday - it's so romantic!

I had one of the best meals of my LIFE in Cinque Terre. All homemade by a family we met at the train station who rented us thier guest house for the weekend. We stayed all week. I too dream of taking my (future) husband back to eat the next great meal of my life. It's been 10 years exactly.
