Camogli 2014

"Mark in Camogli!"

In May of 2014, when I went to Venice for a week, I also took some time to journey along the Italian Riviera. I stayed in Camogli - the most wonderful place in the world! From there, I took day trips to San Fruttosso, Portofino, and Sestri Levante, and also walked the hill path from Manarola to Vernazza. That was an amazing experience! I even helped a couple of women along the way who were certain they were not going to make it to the Vernazza. Below, I have put together some photographs of my stay on this beautiful coast, along with some thoughts about my experience. I hope you enjoy it.

This was an amazing stay on this beautiful coast, and I can’t tell you how much finding this idyll meant to me. It was a perfect place to relax andrejuvenate. I am so grateful for all the opportunities, like this one, which I have been given - to see Europe - and bring these images home to share with all of you. My hope, as always, is that you enjoy them!
