I haven’t blogged for almost two weeks – but for a very good reason. I was on vacation in Italy.

The food; the wine!

But more than that, what a beautiful country.

We started in Sorrento, a small town about an hour outside of Naples.

From there we went down the coast, stopping in Positano and taking a ferry to Capri.

It is called the vertical city and you can see why. The houses are literally built on one another.

And Capri where many of the rich and famous keep second homes.

Stunning, yes? I did not know Italy was so very hilly.

We also saw Pompei with Vesuvius in the background.

It is still an active volcano and so is closely monitored.

 

What a beautiful country. From Southern Italy, we went to Florence. The Tuscan hills were, incredible as it seems, even more stunning.
