Capri – Crazy Beautiful

DSC05014

My four days on the island of Capri are almost done. The whole island is gorgeous! Full of flowers, fascinating people and fantastic food. I’ll definitely be back one day. I’m very glad we stayed in Ana Capri. It’s less crazy, less expensive and the people are so nice and so much fun.

Ana Capri – Bettola del Re

When we were younger we couldn’t afford expensive hotels. It didn’t stop us from traveling, but sometimes we roughed it a little. Now we can afford better hotels, and enjoy them very much, but we also love the new classy B&B’s that are popping up. Bettola Del Re is one of the best.

It’s a very short walk from the beautiful little town of Ana Capri, which is full of shops and restaurants. Today we hiked down to the Grotto Azzura, then hiked into Capri, where we had a sumptuous seafood lunch. Ten beautiful miles we walked today.

The grounds of Bettola Del Re are perfect to while away the evening with a good book and a glass of local wine. The owners are friendly, welcoming and accommodating. Can’t fault the place in any way.

Now I’m exhausted and I think its time to sleep.

Buona Notte!

Walking the narrow winding streets on Ana Capri is a treat. This window captured my imagination.

Italy – Where my Heart is!

As I count down the days until I fly to Naples (9) I anticipate my first meal. Will it be the famous pizza or will it be seafood? One thing is certain, it will be SPECTACULAR!

Italy stole my heart over thirty years ago! Maybe this trip will show me that little retirement place I’ve been searching for! I know I’ll find it soon, its meant to be!

55 Days to go!

If I could start my career over again, I’d be a travel counsellor. Nothing gives me more pleasure than traveling to new places and visiting place I’ve been before and loved.

Since my last trip to Italy (two years ago), I’ve had health concerns, a visit to the emergency room and more stress than I care to talk about, but I’m hoping to exercise the daemons and get all of these issues blown away in the place that soothes my heart and soul, Italy! I can’t wait to sit in the pool of the beautiful villa we’re renting, and look out at the perfect blue waters of the Mediterranean. 55 Days to go!

 

Pikes Peak – Dressed for a Wedding

Pikes Peak was showing off this morning when I got up. All dressed up and magnificent.

Lake Garda – Wish I were there!

I still dream of retiring to Italy, but would one home be enough. Ravello and the Amalfi Coast is the place I think of most, but Lake Garda and its beautiful scattering of towns, is always in my heart!

Memories of Campania

I could wander those beautiful streets forever.
