Travel is a way to be lost…and found…all at the same time

Cinque Terre, Italy

We docked in Livorno today…hard to decide which way to go…Florence to see some of the world’s most famous art, Pisa, to see the leaning tower, or visit 5 tiny towns nestled in steep cliffs along the Italian coastline known as Cinque Terre. We close the latter. We got to these little villages by boat, each similar but each with its own little unique setting. They are all sherbet colors, stacked on top of each other, on tiny, twisting roads accessable only by walking. They all have incredible beachfronts. The last one had rainbow striped beach umbrellas and chairs lined up, stretching as far as the eye could see which was breathtakingly beautiful.

Rome, Italy

Rome is such a fabulous city, the capital of Rome, with a population of 4.3 million within the metropolis.  It is an ancient history of over 2,500 years, with every corner enhanced by talented artists.  If you’ve never been to Rome, a good way to see it is to buy a ticket for the Hop On Hop Off Bus.  You can ride around the city, and pick and choose which famous spot you want to explore in greater detail.

Sorrento – Pompeii, Italy

Buon giorno from Italia! After a day and a half at sea,  we have landed in Naples. Sorrento is a charming cute city with the best ice cream!! To get there its an hour drive along this beautiful Amalfi coast. The beaches are really interesting in that they are set up off a cliff, with winding staircases, perfectly aligned striped beach umbrellas, and wooden, striped changing rooms, like a movie from times gone by.
