We didn't stop, we'd already been to the cinque terre the year before. It was really a nostalgic moment as the train rolled past. We saw people leaving the train and heading for the cinque terre. I felt a piercing pain in my heart, the pain of envy, I wished I was returning to the cinque terre. I'd loved our visit the previous year. One must make it a point in this liefetime to visit the cinque terre and spend more than the one day that we spent there.
