Time To Go Home ~ Positano, Amalfi Coast Italy

Time To Go Home This morning we go home….   Pictures or people’s description of Positano does not do it justice. This has been the most peaceful place we’ve ever been.

We walked the main streets, weaved in and out of the narrow walkways, popping into the many cobbler shops plying their trade making all the sandals by hand and soaking in the over all feel. Still in disbelief that we […]
