Cinque Terre, Italy

Our Europe 2014 trip featured a visit to Cinque Terre. We drifted along a leisurely itinerary of al fresco dining, napping on the beach, and hiking along the Sentiero Azzurro.

• Nicole Ruskell's Rescuing Vernazza: An eyewitness account: "The rain kept pouring down until the village became a rushing river. The cars in the parking lot above town began to get swept up by the water. The strong current carried cars and trucks down into town like they were nothing but toys. Some locals looked on from their balconies with disbelief as their cars rushed by below them."
