So last week we spent two days, three nights in Manarola which is one of the five lands of Cinque Terre. After a long drive from Florence we walked down a massive hill… By the time we reached half way I was still trying to figure out how to drag my bag down the long hill. Once we reached the bottom, We all thought the walk was over. We were all wrong we still had to drag our bags up flights of stairs. Once we reached where we were staying we were all tired and didn’t even want to go into our rooms. It was really cool that the 5 kids got there own room. With 3 single beds and a double bed all lined up in a row. Except somebody took up more space than he was supposed to, not mentioning any names.(Sebastian Elder)
After getting settled in our rooms we got our cossies on and went down to the incredibly rocky beach!!! The water was beautiful, everyday it was beautiful. The next day was even more clear than the first. The funny part was in the main swimming area they would ask people to move because they had to lower boats into the water. The next day we took a boat to Vernazza one of the other five lands. There was nice water there and everyone except for Violet and mum, swam round to a place where there was clean water and small rocks to dive off. The clean water there should of been there when we were swimming there. Me and Jazz even thought we saw a jellyfish but it turned out to be a plastic bag. I said we have got part turtle brain.
The next day we had to leave but I did a 20 foot jump into the water that Jaz and Seb had done. It was quite creepy and I was very shaky. We all had a great time and we would be happy to go back there again!
