Was vegging in front of the tube recently when the new Fiat ad grabbed my eye. The hot little car is rolling down an embankment into the Mediterranean en route to the States… “I was JUST in that spot!” I exclaimed. Pause, halt, OMG, how cool! The ad boasts a few shots of both Riomaggiore and Monterosso, two of the five charming towns in the Cinque Terre region, along the northern coast of Italy. Very very beautiful! Viewing the ad was a happy moment, but the visit to that little boat launch in Riomaggiore will stay with me for many moons! So chill and charming and colorful and tasty and inviting and … a place where I was simply BEING … pure pleasure, pure livin’!
