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

Sorrento, Italy

We arrive in Naples, the 3rd largest city in Italy after Rome and Milan.  Like many seaside ports, Naples built fortresses to defend herself, but not much is left as this was one of the most bombed Italian cities during WWII.  Naples is a very industrial town, a stopping off port to the primary destinations of Pompeii, Capri, and the Amalfi Coast.  Hmm…which destination should we head to?

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.
