We’re so excited to feature a beautiful set of images from film photographer Ashley Vaughn and her travels through Italy. Read below to hear more from Ashley about her adventures:
Although my husband and I “only” had eight days in the romantic country, we jam packed a ton of great sights and adventures! We started our trip in Milan, followed by Riomaggiore, Florence, and finally, Rome. Between the architecture, food, and wine, I was in heaven with my favorite travel partner! I brought along my Olympus XA2 and Fuji GA645 to capture the trip in both 35mm and 120mm! I used Portra 400 as my film stock.
While each city gave us inspiration and great times, my favorite part of the trip was the 12 mile hike we did across all five towns in Cinque Terre. I found Pall’s site, Trekguyd, through Trip Advisor. Not only was he an INCREDIBLE tour guide, but he went above and beyond helping Andy and I secure our train tickets and provided wonderful company while we were in Riomaggoire. His knowledge of the area was just as amazing as the scenery! I highly recommend reaching out to Pall if you visit that area – hands down the best part of the trip! It was an absolutely breathtaking experience being on top of the mountains, looking down at the colorful buildings and acres of vineyards. The entire Cinque Terre area stole my heart and I can’t wait venture there again!
