    Newbie alert. ;)

    Just bought a Panasonic Lumix GF7 as recommended by a trusted friend (who btw, also brought me to this site). Just in time for my short holiday in Italy. Sharing some of my captured memories.

    LAKE COMO, 25 March 2016


    Our first stop is at Lake Como in the Province of Lecco, Lombardy Region. We spent most of our time walking the streets of Varenna

    Cruising to Como proper.

    How beautiful are these colored houses?

    (Unfortunately we did not find George Clooney nor his house. Lol)

    Must try. Especialy gelato :D

    From Lake Como, we took the train back to Milan Centrale to catch the train to Florence.

    That's my beautiful friend right there and my instant model. ;)

    NIGHT IN FLORENCE

    We arrived in Florence, the capital city of Tuscany region, later that night and stay with a fellow Filipino family.

    CINQUE TERRE pt.1, 26 March 2016

    Went for a day trek in Cinque Terre in the region of Liguria and explored its five villages. And by the way, if you are planning to visit this beautiful place, you may also want to book a tour package with Walkabout Florence. We had an amazing day and enjoyed every minute of our tour. Thanks to our very bubbly hyper active tour guide. ;) #johnnyboysaysyow

    Me and my friends trying on the selfie mode with the tilt screen of lumix gf7. Haven't learn the art of selfie, but its useful when you have friends who did. ;)

    CINQUE TERRE pt.2, 26 March 2016

    Worth the calories burned to get to see this view.

    me.

    Just me.

    Would love to share more of Cinque Terre, but then I had to keep it to my own memory coz my battery failed me to reach the end of the tour.

    Definitely need a backup battery for gf7 especially for a newbie like me, since you'll be wanting to just shoot as many as possible. And trying to experiment the right combination to get the output you want will definitely consume more battery.



    P.S.

    Quattro - Monterosso
    Cinque - Riomaggiore


    End of day two.

    Hello from the other side.


    As the third day is about to end, which is our last night in Italy btw and last day in Florence, the Italian blood in me is slowly awakening.

    P.S. My middle name in Tolentino which is my grandfather's surname whose name is Florencio. He's not a full blooded Italian though. Haha. Don't even know how to trace our Italian decent. ;)
