After three nights in beautiful Roma, we have arrived last night in Praiano, a town in the amalfi coast in sw italy.
Briefly about Roma...
We stayed at a very young and fun hostel in brand new rooms. All the workers were in their 20s and from usa, australia, canada, or london. Super cool people. Our first night we ended up going out with Brian and Danny (shirleys friends who are also traveling). We spent the next two days seeing the sights...The Vatican, Roman Steps, Colosseum, etc. and some shopping downtown. We found a delicious tratoria right in front of our hostel which we enjoyed many meals at
Briefly about Amalfi coast...
Yesteday We took a train to Naples and then jumped aboard a ferry which took us down and across the sea to amalfi coast. The scenery was amazing.
We checked into a beautiful hotel, with grown ups, which is on a cliff overlooking the Mediterranean sea. We were somehow upgraded to a room which over looks the sea and is accompanied by our own private terrace and pool next to the room overlooking the water. This is in Praiano. It looks exactly like one of the scenes in Under the Tuscan Sun when Diane Lane goes to visit her man. AMAZING. Everyone travels around on little mo pads and motorcycles. We went on a boat tour of the Blue Grado, beautiful caves in the rock in the sea. Our boatman let us jump out and swim in the Mediterranean in the cave while serenading us italian songs
Everything from the food, wine, people, and hotels have been incredible and like nothing I have ever experienced. Tomorrow we are going to Amalfi to see the beaches and go shopping.
Sorry about the spelling..im running out of internet time...
