Last Post from Italy :) We rented a car in Rome and drove down to the Amalfi Coast where hubs had rented a little house this time. To get to this amazing place in a little town called Positano though…one had to climb 200 of these evil steps!
There are 3 things that run through
your my mind mind while hiking up
- The place he picked better be “extraordinary-ly” awesome!
- How do they ever get a new laundry machine up here?
- Hundred steps up to our own apartment at home without an elevator are really not THAT bad!
But it was all good- the house we had had an amazing terrace- the one in the front right here, which spans around on the right. We also had an amazing stocked kitchen that made it possible to cook a lot and spent a lot of evenings and mornings on the terrace! And look at the view – you can see capri from there.
hubs we decided to hike up to this church build in 1400. …pretty steep way up – this was taken when we already made half of the hike and about 2500 evil steps…
There were 4 things that went through my mind on that hike
- This church better be really beautiful
- 200 evil stairs to the Positano-Apartment are not THAT bad
- I guess they hadn’t had a laundry machine in 1400
- If you do that every day…you look pretty good …shape wise
The good thing about hauling your camera with you is that you have a good excuse in getting very interested in for example olive trees and take a lot of pictures from all angles for the purpose of stopping and trying to breathe a bit ;)
just sitting on this amazing plateau with this breathtaking view
We went to Capri one day- drove to Sorrento and then took the ferry. BTW driving…adventurous ….
Tour busses were only allowed in one direction – but the public busses of course in both. I think you have to prove you are a crazy person before you can apply for being a bus driver at the Amalfi Coast. You also have to wear GIGANTIC sunglasses. Those guys were COOL though…
well …back to Capri – beautiful!!!
just way too many people like us there… ;)
And here we could see our town Positano from Capri
The last day we went to Amalfi
We had a good time there…I bought some really nice handmade Amalfi Paper…love it…and will probably be very hesitant to use it for the next months- LOL (ohhh what project would be good enough to use this up???)
It was a wonderful vacation – especially after the crazy summer I had and also to get some sun as this was the WORST summer ever in Hamburg. I am freezing right now …LOL. So you made it through this vacation too- hope you enjoyed some of those pictures.
How many steps are there to the place where you live?
