The Cinque Terre (Italian pronunciation: [ˌtʃinkwe ˈtɛrːe]) is a rugged portion of coast on the Italian Riviera. It is in the Liguria region of Italy, to the west of the city of La Spezia. “The Five Lands” comprises five villages: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore.

  1. Who is paying for this summer trip in our winter?

    Sea wall research! Looks like a good solution coming up.

  4. 5 Earth! La Rive. Do you begrudge them vacances? I mean, they could have stayed in a Cinque PORT, like Rye, East Sussex. Kitchen cinque drama.

    Another post card with a difference. We read where Cr David Benson–Pope was critical of the misuse of correct language in official documents. He was insistent that words like ‘learnings’ instead of ‘lessons’ particularly was wrong and a misuse of English language. Well, I suppose he has a point there, but surely it is the context which is important. For instance in council reporting of events and activities the obvious word would be ‘lesson’. However, in unrelated activities such as him ‘barging into girls’ dormitories and ablution areas at school camps, or the eye watering discipline involved in the halcyon days of his ‘heavyweight lifting’ triumphs could best be described as ‘learnings’. In a word, it is a case of ‘horses for courses’.
