Woody Allen: the king of awesome quotes

 

Sex without love is a meaningless experience, but as far as meaningless experiences go its pretty damn good.

Eighty percent of success is showing up.

If you want to make God laugh, tell him about your plans.

Bisexuality immediately doubles your chances for a date on Saturday night.

I took a speed-reading course and read War and Peace in twenty minutes. It involves Russia.

It seemed the world was divided into good and bad people. The good ones slept better while the bad ones seemed to enjoy the waking hours much more.

What if everything is an illusion and nothing exists? In that case, I definitely overpaid for my carpet.

I don’t want to achieve immortality through my work. I want to achieve it through not dying.

To you I’m an atheist; to God, I’m the Loyal Opposition.

I was nauseous and tingly all over. I was either in love or I had smallpox.

Five Rainbow Lands

Last year I was on a trip to Italy and I had the privilege to see some of it’s most beautiful sights like Rome, Florence, Verona, Maranello and Venice.  But Italy is a country where every little village has it’s charm and I would love to have the pleasure of enjoying more of it. So if I get the chance to go again, this is on the top of my list:

 Cinque Terre – The Five Lands of Color

Cinque Terre, which means Five Lands, cincludes five small coastal villages located in the Italian region of Liguria. Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia,Vernazza and Monterosso are listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Riomaggiore

riomaggiore

This is the most southern of the 5 cities. It has the tipical colorful houses and an ancient stone castello.  During the day you can see the sunlight reflected in the water and hear bell towers chiming. At night the sight becomes a little surreal as small boats go night fishing for anchovies and other fish using lights to attract the fish.

Manarola

Manarola, Italy

This small town is filled with boats of all kinds that line the main street. It has the best gelateria of all the towns: 5 Terre Gelateria e Creperia. Yummy! It also has a charming little swimming area, plenty of caves and coastline to explore with beautiful underwater rocks.

Corniglia

corniglia

 Corniglia is smaller and quieter, but it looks just as fantastic as the other towns. Unlike the other cities of the Cinque Terre, Corniglia is not directly adjacent to the sea. It is situated on the top of a 100 metres high hill, surrounded by vineyards, terraces and a steep slope that ends at the sea. The town is a little different from the other villages: the houses are lower set, and only the more recently built are higher.

Vernazza

This is the next town to the north. It has a spectacular trail that goes along the sea and offers a great backwards views of both Corniglia and Manarola. They say Vernazza is bright and cheerful. It presents its visitors with a cool night scene, clock towers,the usual boats and a nice beach.

Monterosso

monterosso

It is actually comprised of two cities, which are connected by a short road tunnel. The ‘old’ town is Monterosso and the new town, Fegila, that has many modern apartments, hotels, a large sandy beach with lots of colourful umbrellas, and cosy looking beach-side restaurants and cafes. The old town is identical to the other Cinque Terre towns, though it is  bigger, not that steep and has a number of boutiques and other shops.

Rock and grunge Saturday

Mike Einziger, the lead guitarist of Incubus, tweeted a picture of him accompanying Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder in a recording studio. According to the tweet, they were recording strings for the new Pearl Jam record. As I adore both bands, I decided to share some of their awesomeness and make my and your Saturday way better:) Enjoy!
