This travel bug was sent from the owner in Texas, USA, to a cacher in the UK, for release there. The owner prefers it remain in the UK, if possible. To extend longevity, please drop this item in a rural OR Premium Member Only cache. Please do not drop it in an urban cache. It may be taken to and traded at a caching event, but do not abandon it there. Transport the bug in the original plastic bag for as long as the bag lasts; this prevents tangling with other items.
Photos in the travel bug logs are appreciated. I will be re-post them here, where they can be seen by other cachers.
About This Item
The Cinque Terre (Five Lands) is a rugged portion of the coast of northwestern Italy. The region is wholly within the province of Liguria, on the Ligurian Sea. The five lands are actually five villiages, Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore. Over the centuries, people have carefully built terraces on the rugged, steep landscape right up to the cliffs that overlook the sea. Olives and grapes are grown on the terraces and modest fishing support the local economies.
Footpaths (some very steep), trains (many tunnels) and boats connect the villages. Cars cannot reach the communities from the outside. This travel bug is from Monterosso. The town is divided into two distinct parts: the old town and the new town. The two areas are divided by a single tunnel that caters to pedestrians and the very few cars that are brought to town by boat.
The town is divided into two distinct parts: the old town and the new town. The two areas are divided by a single tunnel that caters to pedestrians and the very few cars in the town. The area is famous for its many lemon trees that can be seen throughout Monterosso. It is also renowned for its white wines, grapes, and olives.
The cat in the photo had a pretty good life for the period we were there. Her territory was between our B&B and the train station. During the day she slept in a south-facing basket at a pottery shop. Twice a day she would make her way across and down the street a little way and wait at the kitchen window of a seafood restaurant. After a while the cook would slide the window open and lay some scraps on the sill. I do not know where she went at night.
