Liguria, Italy

On the west coast of Italy, stretched along the glistening Ligurian Sea lie the Cinque Terre, or Five Lands. Dating back to the 11th century, these picturesque towns have, by virtue of their isolated locations, remained protected from the outside world. To this day they remain accessible only by train, boat, or a rugged winding path that weaves up though the mountains and dips down to meet the clear blue water between the villages.

Though cars are vietate (forbidden) in these colorful towns, geocaches are welcome. Among the twelve caches scattered along the winding trail connecting each town to the next is Cinque Terre – Monterosso-Vernazza, our Geocache of the Week.

GIFF 2018

Geocaching International Film Festival 2018 in review

This past November, almost 18,000 geocachers attended Geocaching International Film Festival events. From movie theater seats and living-room couches, geocachers all around the world celebrated the 16 GIFF finalist films. We laughed a lot, sniffled a little, and remembered what we love about geocaching.

This year we’re excited to share a very special video created by geocacher and previous GIFF finalist, Geoelmo6000. He gathered and edited footage from this year’s film finalists and GIFF events to create this exclusive recap. Watch the film now: 

Interested in submitting your own film and participating in next year’s festival? Learn how at the GIFF website. You have some time but you may want to start sketching your storyboards. The deadline for next year’s film entries is August 1, 2019.

Ireland, the Emerald Isle, is a popular travel destination. People from all over the world come to enjoy the beauty of its lush, rolling hills and its world heritage sites Brú na Bóinne, Skellig Michael (you might recognize it as the home of the adorable Porg in The Last Jedi) and the Giant’s Causeway. It is also the home of over ten thousand geocaches, amongst them the oldest geocache in Europe. Equally deserving of the spotlight is our Geocache of the week, which is located in Ireland’s capital, Dublin.
