    Olivenhain und Klippen

    August 10 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    Vom Vesuv sind wir weiter nach Sorrent in einen Olivenhain gefahren, um dort den Nachmittag und die Nacht zu verbringen. An unserem Parkplatz waren direkt angrenzend Klippen mit wunderschönem, kristallklaren blauen Wasser. Abends haben wir den Sonnenuntergang, sowie unsere Abendessen an der Klippen genossen.Read more

    Kack Baumharz aber geile Aussicht

    September 19, 2020 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    Eigentlich war der heutige Plan die Amalfi-Küstenstraße zu fahren. Nach dem aufstehen mussten wir aber feststellen, dass über die Nacht Harz auf unser Dachzelt getropft ist. Also putzen wir das erstmal (was sich gar nicht als so leicht erwieß) und entschlossen dann den Tag entspannter anzugehen und erst am Sonntag die berühmte Straße zu fahren.
    Wie wir später feststellten tat uns das auch mal ganz gut, da wir doch die letzten Tage viel unterwegs waren und viel erlebt haben.

    So ging es für uns nur noch auf einen kleinen Aussichtspunkt, damit wir auch wussten was uns da am nächsten Tag erwartet 😉.

    PS: Unser Limoncelli Verkäufer kam nicht nochmal um uns seine Felder zu zeigen 😐😂

    Capri und die Amalfi Küste

    August 27, 2020 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    Wir Segelten um Capri auf der Suche nach der Blauen Grotte die wir leider nicht gefunden haben. Der Ausblick auf Capri und die großen Jachten entschedigte dies aber. Dann ging es weiter zur Amalfi Küste zum baden und tendernd zu einem tollen Restaurant.Read more

    Garbage

    March 18, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 55 °F

    Who knew it could be so complicated? Our hostess walked through it in detail when we arrived, and left these handy instructions on the dishwasher. She mentioned bags, but we can't find the right colored ones. And where is the green bin on the street for the organic waste? We're supposed to take it up the night before, but the one time Gordon figured he would just go up and do what everyone else did, nobody was doing ANYthing. So that's what we did.

    The end result is we've been collecting garbage in 5 makeshift bags since we arrived 6 days ago. Our feeble plan is, on the day we leave, to sneak out under cover of darkness and load up the car with garbage. Every time we see a garbage bin along the road with no witnesses in sight we will jump out and drop some (wiping first for finger prints first, of course).

    Wow! That's detailed. Our garbage trucks are so big, ad so noisy, you can't possibly miss them. Must be different there.

    Dang! Relaxing AGAIN!

    March 18, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 57 °F

    We were hoping the predicted shift in wind would clear out the haze so we could try driving the Amalfi coast again. Well maybe it has. We can't tell.

    We are having another bang up day relaxing. And the washer is keeping Gordon from getting bored. Since there is only a rack for drying and the weather is coolish, Gordon is further entertaining himself (and me) by microwaving the pillow cases, shaking each one out while the other one is cooking.

    I made a delicious vegetable soup out of leftover ham, carrots and bitter greens in broth with a dash of pesto. Went beautifully with the loaf of fresh onion bread we bought on our morning walk.

    The cat got right into the spirit she snuck in when the door was cracked and we found her napping in the bedroom upstairs.

    Oh, and I found another sweater that I really like at a cute little shop on the village Main Street. Now I have an alternative to my fleece jacket. We are heading northward in a couple of days and I will surely need it.

    It must be tough to have to relax so much.

    Still relaxing ...

    March 15, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 54 °F

    One day was not enough. We delayed cabin fever by walking up to the shops for food and are now well enough supplied we don't have to go out again. While lazing on the couch enjoying the view, I was moved by the light to go out onto the patio to snap a couple of photos.Read more

    Lazy day Tuesday

    March 14, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 54 °F

    We lazed, browsed, napped, drank tea, then wine and generally had a great day. Gordon enhanced his experience by running a few clothes through the washer. The house advertises washer and dryer. We found the dryer out on the patio ... a rack ... but it worked.

    For our big activity we walked up the hill to the Restaurant da Mimi for lunch. That pasta looking thing is actually winter squash baked in marinara and mozzarella. Delicious! Gordon had a thick rich vegetable soup and a salad with fresh tuna. We splurged on pistachio profiteroles for dessert.

    On our way out Luigi, the spunky 4-year-old son of our waitress, brought out 2 fresh lemons for us to take out. I think he was going off the reservation, but the waitress smiled and said it was fine. Shoulda gotten a photo of the little fireball.

    OMG. So idyllic and such wonderful looking food. I bet it is easier to find real, healthy wonderful tasting food there. I am almost relieved that you are finally taking a break from your whirlwind schedule. Whew. Your last photo of the clouds with the sun shining through was stunning. Oh gee... you have some clouds!

    Food has been more difficult than you'd think. We generally only eat one meal out a day and get food at the shops for the rest. I'm getting tired of bread and cheese. We are VERY spoiled by the variety in our grocery stores.

    Yummmmy!!! It's a good thing you walk so much otherwise you may return to the states a pound or two heavier. Bon appetite. DonnaG

    Amalfi Coast

    March 19, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 57 °F

    Tried again. There was a low ceiling but no haze. It was a wild ride and Italian drivers are crazy! Got somewhere between Positano and Amalfi before deciding our stomachs couldn't take much more. We are glad we tried again though. Absolutely stunning views, most of which we weren't quick enough to photograph. Turnouts were all too rare.

    Oh, and we found a garbage bin (one!) to tip some of oysters stash into. :)

    I would hope that people living "up" must have no fear of heights. Looking down, at the bottom of the picture, is.... I think my fear of heights has come on in adulthood. I can imagine backing up from the edge of that cliff.

    One might benefit from wearing accu-bands on those roads! The views are so alluring!

    Heraculum (Ercolano)

    March 16, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 57 °F

    This is the OTHER town, along with Pompeii, that was both wiped out and preserved by the massive eruption of Mt Vesuvius. We decided to buck the crowd and visit it instead. We were thrilled with the rich findings still on display here in quite a small area, especially since we read that most of the important artifacts have been moved to the Archeological museum in Naples.

    This was Pompeii's rich sister so if you want to see the erotica at the brothels you need to go to Pompeii. We are too young to see that stuff anyway.

    I hear that the mosaics in the museum in Heraculum are the best in the world - even better than Ravenna. Did you get to see them? Envy, envy, envy ...

    We didn't want to drive into the center of Naples and park. I would have loved to see the castings from Pompeii that they have there. Alas. Perhaps next time.

    Oops just reread that. I think everything from both Pompeii and Heraculum has been moved to the National Archeological Museum in Naples. There were two museum looking buildings on site there that were quite empty and showing neglect.
