Postcard view – Italy

Postcard view from the terrace
In the end of April I left for a couple of days of holiday to Italy together with my sister and her boyfriend. Since I totally fell in love with the Sorrento Peninsula (Peninsola Sorrentina) and the Amalfi Coast (la Costiera Amalfitana) I visited in July last year I was very eager to return.
My host, Dorina, the most adorable Italian woman I’ve ever met, took so well care of me last time and living in her lovely home with terraces overlooking the sea, there was no question about it I wanted to stay at her place.
I was a bit worried with the weather, according to the weather forecasts it was supposed to rain but when I arrived to the airport of Naples the sun was shining, I guess it was around 25 degrees, guess if I was happy :-) One hour later my sister and her boyfriend arrived to the airport from Denmark and we took the bus to Sorrento. There is also a train connecting to Sorrento but I recommend anyone to take the bus, a few euros more expensive, but far more safer and convenient. In Sorrento Dorina was waiting for us with a smile on her face and it was lovely to meet her again.

On her terrace, with a postcard view, Dorina, had prepared us lunch, how sweet wasn’t that? Did I tell you she makes the most delicious Italian dishes? During these few days I was in food heaven ;-)

    Oh my word…simply breath-taking. I found myself breathing deeply as I was reading your post and enjoying your pictures. I wanted to smell the sea air and the cheese and wine! :)
