Italy Photo Diary ~ The Amalfi Coast

Italian fruit marketTo say THE Italy trip was highly anticipated is an understatement. The day dreaming got me through countless hours of study (and avoiding study not to mention.. shhh). The idea of endless days (well, endless I wish!) wandering the streets surrounded by fascinating history and dont forget that food! (Hellllllllo pasta gut!)

The first step of our family trip began on non other than THE Amalfi Coast, staying in Sorrento. That’s right, the same one you’ve seen in the movies. I could almost see James Bond executing the perfect dive off the coastal cliff tops. Yep, pretty much jaw dropping views accompanied by me saying “WOW!” about every 5 seconds.

Any tour to the south of Italy wouldon’t be complete without a tour of Pompeii. I found this historic site particularly fascinating (which was helped by my weird interest in volcanoes), but more in the way the civilisation living there was so advanced for their time. It is such a tragedy for both the lives lost as well as the loss of knowledge this town contained.

But one part that particularly made me want to take a mental picture every step I took was the stunning views along the Amalfi Coast, where along the way we briefly stopped at Positano, Amalfi, Ravello & and a mind blowing Grotto.
