Vacations…aren’t they wonderful? But isn’t the return wonderful as well!!!
But I’ve got to say 15 days was hard. I know…play that violin Lissa!!
9 days in Sorrento and 4 in London fabulous….but I hate to say it I really missed talking to my daughters every day. Although I did get the Verizon Global plan that allowed for texting but 4 times I went over the limit and they had to renew it at $25 a pop. (I don’t know how that happened) LOL!!!
But getting back to Italy….If you’re lucky enough to go…
Just keep in the back of your mind for reference points…Almafi Town, Ravello, Positano, Capri, Sorrento, and while I didn’t expect to like Naples we did take the train there twice. Unfortunately the train drops you off in the worst part of town….but a good walk gets you to the better neighborhoods and of course the most beautiful churches.
2 things that are a constant…you’ll walk for ever looking for a public bathroom. Always have change with you. Yes you have to pay and there is no such thing as a bad meal.
But do you eat…and all carbs…but yummy carbs they are!!!
A typical meal….bread, pizza bread, pizza, pasta and gelato plus a sip of limoncello.
You always pay for water, but its cheap…even Pelligrino!!!
And nice….everyone is nice….Didn’t meet a person who wasn’t. All friendly even with the language barrier.
And London….2nd time for me there…Absolutely love that city although unlike Italy with the off season there is no off season in London. Even with the cold and the rain its wall to wall people. But like Italy, the public transportation system is excellent. So easy to get from here to there.
And I hope I get to go from here to there again!!
But who knows where we will go next? Would love to see Australia and New Zealand.
What’s on your list? What are the next two places you’d love to see?
