Travel Diary: Getting to know Positano

View from my apartment
 








Hi everybody!

This day consisted of traveling throughout Positano on foot, so that I could get to know this resort town. My apartment was right next to the coastline, so as soon as I got out of my apartment I was the beach. This was honestly my favorite part of Positano because it was lined with open restaurants, filled with relaxed tourists roaming about, and reminded me of a tropical beach town. I decided to climb the hills up to the church in the center of Positano. After viewing the gorgeous church, I continued to enter through this canopy of bugambilias. Here, there was a long walkway where merchants would sell accessories and tiny trinkets. I then proceeded to the Delicatessen to buy some ingredients to make myself lunch. As soon as I entered, I could smell the scents of Italian cheeses and meats. I headed home to make my prosciutto and mozzarella. All the tastes were authentic and delicious. I proceeded to head out just to enjoy the sites and local life of Positano. I headed into some shops, including Sapori e Profumi, where there were loads of souvenirs to buy.

Thank you so much for reading!

Travel Diary: Arriving in the Amalfi Coast & First Impressions




First glimpse of Positano



Hi everybody!

After a long morning of traveling, I landed in Naples. I quickly hopped on the transport waiting for me and looked out the windows at the beautiful sites of Naples. As Dean Martin's "That's Amore" played in the car, the driver started to head up the mountains. As he quickly weaved around curves on the narrow roads, I looked put the window and saw nothing but a thin railing and sea. So, let's just say these drivers were very talented. He stopped along the way, so I could buy a lemon ice (the Amalfi Coast has world-famous lemons) and take some photos. The view was spectacular, especially when he rounded the corner and I got my first glimpse of Positano. It's everything I imagined it would be and much more! The white/colorful buildings scattered about the green mountain, the bougainvilleas placed on nearly every building, the coastline filled with content tourists, etc. I was shocked that such a place existed!
Upon arriving, I immediately was attracted to the beach vibe. All the tourists were either already drenched from the sea or heading to the beach with towels and trinkets in hand. I also noticed that there were many, many stairs. Let's just say that to get to my apartment alone, I had to climb 150 steps... I definitely got a good leg workout while in Positano. :)
Overall, my first impressions were of awe and wonder. It was a magical far-off land with an aura of relaxation.
