As you are reading this, I am leaving on a jet train and heading north, north, north .. all the way north to the Costiera Amalfitana. And yes. It is still considered the south.
A bit far for a day trip, you think?
Well, you are right. It is a tad far.
I left Catanzaro at 5:45 AM and I’ll be in Salerno sometime around 10:30 where my cousin, her husband and two of their friends will meet me for the day.
They are cruising the Mediterranean, but the closest they get to Bella Calabria is 5 hours north, so up I go. The original plan was for my husband to go with me and us enjoy a mini-vacay along the most beautiful coastline in the world but our bed and breakfast got booked – fully booked! – for the week and hence, I’m going solo.
But that is ok. I enjoy traveling alone and I’m looking forward to the hours I can spend reading a book, listening to music, writing in my journal … and just thinking.
The Ragazza from NYC/Caribbean/Rome/LA (am I missing something??) sent me a fantastic article with restaurant and bar recommendations – so I won’t go hungry when I’m there.
So bear with me in responding to comments today and I’ll tell you all about it when I get back.
Have you ever been to the Amalfi Coast? Do you think it lives up to its title of “Most Beautiful Coastline in the World?” What other coasts can compare?
