I'm sorry I've been so bad about blogging lately, but I've had a couple big papers to write (yes, we actually do work abroad) and in my free time, I've been trying my best to get out and enjoy the city for these last few days! I can't believe I move out next Saturday!
Anyways, I left off with my trip to Amalfi Coast. Day 2: Capri.
Ohhhhh my god. Talk about Heaven on Earth.
We started the day by taking a ferry from Sorrento to Capri, then immediately got a 2-hour boat tour around the island - probably my favorite part of the day. There's just something about being out on the crystal clear, blue water, staring up at giant rocky cliffs, and realizing you're in one of the most beautiful places in the world. Throughout the tour, our guides pointed out famous people's houses, including Denzel Washington and a house that Michael Jackson attempted to buy, but was turned down by Italy.
After the boat tour, we walked up to the town of Capri, enjoyed the most delicious and refreshing blood orange and lemon granitas (promise me you'll get one if you go!), then took a van up to Anacapri. From there, we walked around, took in the views, then took a chairlift to the top of Mt. Solaro to see some of the best sights of the day. It felt like we were on top of the world!
We also checked out the sandal shops where you can watch old Italian men hand making cute pairs of sandals, and tried several samples within each limoncello store.
All in all, a fabulous day, and one of my favorites abroad so far.
Huge thanks to Tara for taking some of these pictures and sharing them with me!
