Okay I must confess I am in Naples, not Amalfi. I just wanted a different map pin for Amalfi, plus I was there earlier today. The bus ride from Salerno to Amalfi was full of beautiful scenes and I have some really great pictures. I wish I could upload photos day by day, that would be amazing but at least my camera organizes them by date so I can keep track when I do upload them in Olomouc.

Amalfi was just gorgeous, crystal clear water and lots of bright flowers and vegetation and rocky cliffs going right down to the water. I was almost persuaded to stay the night there by a girl from Belgium who was working for the hostel there but I didn't want to pay a penalty for not using my reservation here in Naples. I might stay there the night of the 20th. I was only in Amalfi for about two hours, just enough to walk around a bit and eat some pizza. The restaurant didn't mention the "cover charge" until you get the bill so that was quite inappropriate. I kind of wish I would have refused to pay it because I didn't plan to spend that much but whatever.

So my hostel here is pretty close to the train station but I took the bus, it was a very tiring long walk in circles before I managed to find the bus stop that took me here. If I only had a goose for every wild goose chase Ive been on, I would have a gaggle of geese. Ugh. Anyway, the hostel is okay, its like halfway up this mountain though so it is a trek to get there. I cant wait to go to bed. Well I have to go, thanks for reading...

Great entry!
Love the gaggle of geese! :) Sounds like Amalfi is absolutely beautiful! I've never been there, but I'm glad you got there. I am looking forward to seeing all your beautiful pictures when you get to Olomouc!
