It seemed almost too beautiful and perfect to be real. The picture postcard village of Manarola sat perched on the rugged cliffs above a sparkling sea. Houses nestled into each other, and terraced gardens marched up the surrounding hills.
The setting sun warmed the buildings with a golden glow and deep purple shadows hinted at the coming night. Experiences like this are what make travel worth the hassles and frustrations and expense. They change you.
