People wax poetic about things being “worth the wait” which can get old fast. However, I feel confident assuring everyone that our honeymoon (and this post) fit that description. Our wedding was our happiest day and I cannot wait to share some of it with you soon, but I think starting in Italy is a perfectly acceptable way to begin a comeback…and a marriage! We wanted to jet off to somewhere stunning, with water but also culture and history and well, food. When our travel guru at Jetsetter whittled the choices down to Greece or Italy, we decided our relationship with pizza was stronger than that with feta, and happily started making arrangements for a week in Positano on the Amalfi Coast. What. A. Week. This was the view we enjoyed every morning over breakfast… It was a perfect week together. We had private tours of Pompeii and Naples (thanks Alessandro!) beautiful gourmet dining on our small hotel’s luxe terrace overlooking the coast, a private cooking class with some of the best chefs in town, and jaunts off to Capri on a boat to take in the sun, surf, and scenery. It was perfect and picturesque…which means I don’t need to ramble on much to share our fun. The prettiest coast The island of Li Galli Best form of transportation We consistently had the most delicious produce everywhere we went…any place that grows lemons is good with me. A place so delicious it made even the Londoner jealous
The view from atop Monte Solaro in old town Capri Granita became a pretty standard part of our day… Playing in Pompeii…. Apollo’s Temple… And of course, a pizza tasting in Naples. There’s plenty more to share…but one post can only handle so much excitement. Check back later for our cooking class, more vacation pictures and of course, wedding photos!
