Our first LONG trip on the bus. Quite a distance to travel. The Kindle comes in handy along with iPhone games and the bus Internet when you can get it 🙂 Judy Teresa and I have been lucky enough to have a double seat each. I have been able to fold this slightly bigger body of mine up and have naps along the way.
We arrived at Sorrento late afternoon and went straight up to the pool bar to freshen up with a nice cold shandy and good conversations. Tea was a treat for all the senses. We went down to a seaside restaurant and enjoyed a lovely meal flavored with incredible views…just lovely.
The next day was one of my most favourite of the whole holiday so far. We took the ferry out to the island of Capri. What a spectacular Harbour to arrive at! Such a beautiful town. We boarded a second boat to venture around the coast listening to our guide describe the history of the area all whilst taking in the amazing scenery. But the best thing if all was being able to jump off the boat into the beautiful aquamarine/blue clear water and swim! Wow…it felt wonderful, very salty but wonderful!
And after the boat ride we went by Finicular up to the restaurants, shops and gardens and enjoyed Capri from that vantage point! I feel spoilt by seeing so many amazing things 🙂
While in Florence we did a tour of the Amalfi coast. I have always wanted to visit a village built along the banks/cliffs of the sea and also travel around the windy, but spectacular coastal roads. This tour ticked both of those desires! And Postitano the little town was fabulous. We were going to do the long walk down to the coast but after going halfway in the burning heat, Judy and I decided that ice-creams were a much better option. The views were spectacular though. I loved it!
