Murren-Gimmelwald Via Ferrata

When sitting down to plan our first European adventure we stumbled upon someone hanging on the side of the Swiss cliffs slide via Google Earth pics.  All we knew at the time was that it was near the town of Murren and Gimmelwald in the Lauterbrunnen Valley.  After some intense research we found that these people were on something called a via ferrata.   At the time we had never heard of a via ferrata, but  now they are something we look for at every trip location.

Tips for hiking Cinque Terre

typorama

Hiking between the Cinque Terre towns is one of the best ways to not only see the towns but also walk off you wine and pasta in between meals 🙂  We have been to Cinque Terre twice.  The first time was for just a one night overstay, but we loved it so much we came back 3 years later and stayed for three nights.  I could never imagine going to Cinque Terre without at least conquering one of the walks in between towns, as to fully see the picturesque Italian coastal villages you need to view the scene from afar.  Here are my top things to know for hiking the trails:
