I remember a few years ago mentioning to my boyfriend that I would love to go to Cinque Terre one day. It looks so dreamy and enticing in photographs. It is literally picture perfect! I also imagined that it was potentially a pricey travel destination, with hoards of tourists flocking to its shores in the summer time. I never thought for a minute that my boyfriend would whisk me away for a surprise birthday weekend, but he did and it was totally romantic!
