Cinque Terre consists of five small villages and Manarola might be the most picturesque of them. Definitely one of the most amazing places I've ever seen.

Long time no see, Italy. It’s the first time I’m covering my stay in a country outside of Asia and if I’m counting correctly, it was my sixth stay on the Apennine Peninsula.

I guess I have to speed up my creative process. I mean, the written part. The other part, the one connected with taking photos, is doing surprisingly well lately. I have a lot of photos from my recent trips to Italy, Malaysia and Thailand, I’m uploading some of them to my Flickr photostream (link on the left) and I’m feeling that my photography, while slower than I would like, is constantly improving. I just can’t get on with my inner writer and thus I’m still behind of schedule with posting my photos here. It’s been a year since I came back from Japan.
