Saturday's PhotoHunting: Observe Children

The Cinque Terre in Italy is a very popular tourist destination, but it is also a very popular destination for local schools as a day trip.  In 2005, my friend and I hiked from Riomaggiore to Vernazza on one day and then from Vernazza to Monterrosso on a second day.  This part of Italy is just breathtaking and I really want to return some day. 
On our first day we spot a big group of children resting near the town of Corniglia.  What a fabulous place to hang out and not be in a stuffy old classroom.
Further along on the trail we crashed into another group.  These Italian school children were so adorable and full of energy.  Kudos to their teachers.

  1. We didn't have many school trips scheduled when I was at school in Malaysia. So would look enviously at English kids out on school trips to places like the Tower of London when I holidayed there.

    Guess I made up for it later when I myself attended school in England. (School trips included taking in "Othello" (starring Ben Kingsley!) at Stratford-upon-Avon and a visit to the Houses of Parliament!)

  2. Hi YTSL, I think school trips are very fun and can be a great learning experience. It's too bad that you didn't have many school trips in Malaysia, but glad that you made up for it in England.

    What a treat to have seen a play with Ben Kingsley. Very cool!

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  3. I didn't go on many school trips when I was in school. Now our kids from Singapore could go on school trips to Europe or China or Australia. That's unfair. :(

  4. Kids are always full of energy all around the world, lol !

  5. Great shot of Cinque Terre, such a wonderful place. Love the expression of the kid in the red t-shirt! Happy weekend.


  6. What a wonderful place for them to be learning!!

  7. Hi everyone, thanks so much for your comments....

    ECL, wow how cool that the kids now days can go on trips to different countries.

    Gattina, yes children are pretty universal aren't they. So adorable and full of energy.

    Mar, thanks for liking my photo of CT. It was fun walking by some of the kids on the trail. Much respect to their teachers for keeping them together and safe along the trails.

    Kara, the CT is such a beautiful location for a day trips and if I was a kid seeing that I would be like in heaven.

    Thank so much everyone for your wonderful comments. Have a great weekend.

  8. Nothing like a nice hunt on a pretty hill side (mountain) I know when we took our boys hiking they sure would run up the mountains.

    Coffee is on

  9. i would have enjoyed field trips when i was in school, but we never had them.

    1. Hi ewok, I think schools everywhere should have some field trips for children. Getting out into the world can be a wonderful learning experience too.

      Thanks so much for your comments. Have a wonderful weekend.

  10. Sorry I missed this theme too - your photos are fantastic!

    Happy weekend to you!
