Rome | Italy Photography Adventure

Friday, March 28, 2014 Posted in Personal 
Today is our last day in Rome, and it's the first sunny day since Tuscany (nearly 7 days ago). It’s bitter-sweet, really. I've really come to love this country, and I feel this trip has been life changing. What I’ve loved the most is the Italian culture. Everything is much different than the States. As I’ve walked through every Italian city, I’ve noticed that everyone is more social. Friends are walking and talking; locals are having passionate conversations with shop owners; dinners are long, and full of expressive hand gestures. I haven’t once seen an Italian on an iPhone, tuned into their own world. I also love that art is precious and valued. It’s a different world here, and I hope I take what I’ve observed/loved home with me. Thank you for following my adventure. If you are planning your own Italian adventure, I would suggest picking up Rick Steve’s book. He has been a great help to us.

Amalfi Coast | Italy Photography Adventure

Friday, March 28, 2014 Posted in Personal 
I have fallen off the wagon with blogging every day. Our days in Amalfi and Rome have been long (and amazing), and in the evenings, I’m just ready to sleep. But here are a few of my favorites from our 8 hour drive up the Amalfi Coast. It was incredible.

Capri | Italy Photography Adventure

Monday, March 24, 2014 Posted in Personal 

Yesterday was our first full day in Sorrento. We decided to take the Hydrofoil to Capri. We nearly missed the boat, and were all running down the cobblestone docks waving our tickets frantically. Luckily, the boat waited for and we arrived panting and giggling. There were good parts and bad parts about yesterday. First, the good parts…the ride between Sorrento and Capri was gorgeous. I loved looking out coastal towns from the view of the water. Especially in Italy where the homes are majestic, colorful, and stacked against the mountains. We also found a lovely tour guide who bussed us around Capri, took us to unique shops, like a limoncello factory, and showed us the best views of both AnaCapri and Capri. He also sang to us, which I know is cliche, but I absolutely loved it.

The not so good parts was that it was cold, windy, and rainy. I also only wanted to go to Capri for two reasons; the chairlift over the island and to see the Blue Grotto. Both of those were closed due to the weather. But, we also got to see things that we wouldn’t have, and enjoyed Capri none-the-less. Here are a few pics from today.
