as i sit here drinking a chilled shot of limoncello, i must write about the place it originated, the island of capri, italy. it is just a day trip away from many neighboring towns along the amalfi coast line.
we took a round trip ferry from sorrento which took about 30 minutes each way so not bad in terms of getting there and back. as soon as we gathered our bearings we decided that we would take the pedestrian path up to the main town of capri, and then walk to the neighboring town of anacapri. people thought we were crazy for walking the distance between the two towns, but was it worth the adventure! of course we met more stray cats, found a random church after hiking up millions of stairs to get to it, and saw breath taking sights. our day trip in a nutshell:
capri is also known for having very ritzy shopping but that isn’t the first thing that comes to mind for me when i think of this island, and for that i am glad. it is so much more than a tourist hot spot if you let it be! getting to the highest point of capri was one of my favorite parts of the day. the views were amazing!
