A Broad Abroad: Positano!
…by way of Sorrento.
After Lucca, husband and I hopped a train to Sorrento, where we arrived late with nowhere to stay and ended up in this hostel:
Sorrento was beautiful (check it out in the pic above), but after all the big cities we had been in, we were ready for a glass of wine on a small terrace overlooking a teeny town, so we hopped a ferry to Positano, Italy. Positano is a small village on the Amalfi coast – with a population just under 4,000, and a single road that weaves through the entire village in one large and weaving loop, it is the stuff dreams are made of. I know I sound cheesy, but I can’t help it, it’s just the perfect place. Our bed was rock hard, we had no lights and no hot water in our B&B for almost three full days, and it rained almost the whole time we were there (including one 2 am storm that kept us out of bed watching the torrential downpour and lightning from our terrace for about an hour), and still I just felt like I never wanted to leave. I mean, Justin and Jessica stayed here once upon a time, so you know it’s gotta be good.
Our first full day in Positano we decided to pretend it wasn’t rainy and cold, and threw on our beach duds, and walked on down (you can walk anywhere in this town in 10 minutes). This day we left the camera in our room, so sorry for the grainy iPhone shots, but fear not! I have some awesome shots of Positano to share with you at a later date!
If we’re ever rich, I want a villa here. And one in London. And Africa. And Costa Rica. Well, looks like I’ve spent all of our imaginary money already. Whoops.
