Apologies for the distinct lack of blog posts in the past few weeks; stuff came up, then I went on holiday. But I'm back now and eager to get back into blogging.
Yes, so the holiday was amazing. Me and Chris went to Sorrento & Amalfi Coast in Italy. Why here? Well, Chris was set on going to Italy, not having been before and as I had already seen Tuscany & Umbria I suggested the Amalfi Coast and he was keen!

We arrived into Naples airport mid-morning, we decided not to hire a car as everyone says the public transport is easy to use and the parking is limited around the Amalfi Coast towns; which it is....when you know where to get the bus from! Turns out the coach to Sorrento (also stops at other places on route) is at the very end of one of the carparks, so not quite 'just outside the arrivals terminal' as suggested online.

During our visit we decided to splash some of our budget for one of the days and take a trip to Capri, supposedly where the rich and famous go (didn't manage to spot any though) - eager to explore this beautiful island we hired our own little boat. It was great fun and only cost us 90 euros for 2 hours - you can drive through the grottos and anchor your boat and go for a swim through the caves.

All in all, I had an excellent time; I'll be doing some more blog posts on Sorrento & Amalfi Coast but this is a general overview. If anyone has any questions about visiting the area then please leave me a comment or get in touch!
