Last trip with session I: Italian Riviera

For the past few days I've been on the Italian Riviera checking out the beautiful landscape and saying goodbye to my friends from session I and saying hello to new friends from session II.

We left on Sunday and stopped in Genova and checked out the birthplace of Christopher Columbus. After taking a city tour we got back on the bus and headed to the beach. A little town called Santa Margarita. This is where we stayed for the weekend and was our homebase for all our smaller trips around the Riviera.

On Monday we went to five towns along the coast referred to as "Cinque Terra" where we split up into groups and hiked along the coast from town to town. We did 3 out of the 4 hikes and we were VERY glad we didn't end up doing the fourth (it was a lot harder).

On Tuesday we went to the famous town of Portofino which is the place were movie stars used to go and where we saw some of the largest yahts ever! After leaving Portofino we went back to the hotel and then went to the beach.

Check out the pictures, it was a really fun trip!

Today all the new people from Session II moved in and the gang from Session I is hanging out tin our apartment until their respsective departures. It's pretty sad, most of the girls have been crying a little bit, it's amazing how close people can get over 5 weeks. But I'm also looking forward to hanging out with the new group. I'm both sad and excited at the same time. Also a little homesick because everyone I've been hanging out with for the past few weeks is going home and have been talking about going home for the past couple days. Lucky for all of us, there is Facebook. :-)
