Though a crowded paradise it was.
Our driver took us to Salerno, which was about 1 1/2 hours from Calitri. From Salerno we took a boat to Positano which was also another 1 1/2 hour gorgeous boat ride, stopping first in the town of Amalfi and then on to Positano.
This is the landscape that we sailed by
I must say, that Positano was a lot of work. Turns out that our hotel (B&B) was about a 25 minute walk from the dock and we had bags. We were glad to hear that we could take a bus, however, in order to catch the bus we had to walk up half the mountain...and it was hot...and humid...but by the time we got to our room, checked in, settled in, washed our face and put down our bags, Positano was looking a lot more relaxing.
We had lunch at this wonderful restaurant
(except for the diesel fuel from the cars passing by) Lunch was great - had my first Limoncello
Here's the view from our room
Oh my - I almost forgot the beach
You would think I would have marvelous poetry to write about this place, but alas, all i have are these pictures. I guess its the jet lag, the miserable cold I picked up on the last leg of the flight home or just the overwhelming experience I had on this trip. I'm hoping someday soon I'll be able to write about it. For now, enjoy the pictures.
