I’ve said it before… but I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to travel the world. There are far more places that I haven’t been, than I have. Yet having been to around 40 countries, I’ve seen enough to ‘get the bug’. To some, 40 countries may be a lot… to others, not very many. It depends on your perspective. If you live in Europe, it’s nothing. If you live in the USA, it’s more than most.
Either way, I love the beauty and culture of new places. I find that Europe in particular has so much history, architecture, and scenery, which gives it a great depth of character.
We do love Italy… I’m not sure I’ve been anywhere in Italy I haven’t liked. The food is amazing, the people gregarious, and the atmosphere eclectically wonderful. If you’ve been to Venice, you know exactly what I mean.
I pulled these photos out of a trip my husband and I took in 2008 to the Amalfi Coast. With houses hanging on the sides of mountains, colorful rooftops and city domes as they jut right into the sea… it’s fantastically picturesque.
While in Amalfi Coast we spent time in many of the small cities along the coast, including Sorrento, Amalfi, Positano, and Cefula. Each has it’s own charm.
The mix of sea, land, food, culture, and picturesque landscape is absolutely intoxicating. Just looking at the photos makes me want to go back. Thanks for reminiscing with me.
