Today we woke up fairly early to get to Pompeii. We went up for a quick breakfast then were on our way. Mark thought the train would be better, although I really wanted to take a cab. But I let him decide, so train it was. We had to take a shuttle bus out from the port, very industrial. We found our way past the guys asking to take us in a taxi, I so wanted to say yes! But we went across the street to the tobacco/magazine stand, where the guy spoke a bit of English, I was glad I ...

We drove further down the Amalfi Coast to a town called Positano. It is equally as beautiful as ...
... sheer joy of it. Not a great first impression.
Marta and I traveled along the streets and finally reached the museum. I really enjoyed walking through the museum.
