Oh Wow!!! I can't believe it's my 21st Birthday. Not long ago, I was writing my 20th Birthday post and now I'm already on 21! Time truly flies when you are having fun and enjoying everything life has to offer.
On one of our free days, my friends and I arrived in Ravello in the late morning and started exploring the beautiful city. We had a few must-see spots on our agenda, but the rest we left up to chance. Situated above the Amalfi Coast, Ravello offers stunning views of the Mediterranean Sea and surrounding mountains. Once we were finally able to tear ourselves away from the gorgeous views, we walked through the town to tour Villa Rufolo.
The first words that come to mind when I think of summer are longer days, sunshine, and swimming. To me, there is no better way to escape the blistering heat than to cool off in a pool, lake or sea. Although relaxing at a pool and lake is very fun I prefer to cool off at a beach. I love hearing the calming sound of the ocean waves coming in and digging my toosh and feet into the sand.
Almost everyday after we had our Italian language lessons Accademia Italiana arranged for us to go on cultural excursions. These included activities like going to tour a mozzarella cheese factory, ceramics painting, touring of historical churches and ancient Greek cities. On this particular day we toured the ancient Greek city, Paestum. The Greeks founded the city of Paestum in 600 B.C. The city is about an hour train ride from Naples and a thirty-minute train ride from Salerno.
Capri is one of the prettiest cities on the Amalfi Coast. From the blooming bougainvillea on buildings, to the picturesque views, the true blue Mediterranean water, and the charming shops. I have always dreamed about visiting Capri so when we finally had a full free day to ourselves, my friends and I packed up our day bags and set out for another Italian adventure.
