If you’ve been to the Amalfi Coast you know how beautiful and unique it is. The smell of the sea, the bougainvillea flowers everywhere, the winding roads along the cliff side, the sunset and how it turns the water pink and silver each time… it’s truly magical!
Our dear friends Michelle & Shervin got married there a few weeks ago and it was absolutely beautiful. An unforgettable trip with some of my favorite people ever.
The cherry on top of this whole trip was that my sister and her boyfriend got to join us ! We had such a wonderful time together that I still can’t believe it actually happen. For as long as I can remember my sister and I used to always dream about renting a boat in the amalfi coast and enjoy the Mediterranean summer together. This year we made that dream into a reality.
And it couldn’t have been more perfect. We rented a beautiful boat for the day and sailed along the coast from Capri to Positano, Minori, and Amalfi. We visited all 3 grottos , swam in them, and sailed under the legendary Faraglioni.
I haven’t even started to talk about the divine Italian food ! Mama mía! I will save that for another blog 😉

The next morning we were woken up by the phone ringing. It was the front desk calling to let us know our shuttle for the blue lagoon tour is waiting. It was 1030AM and we had slept in. We asked the front desk if the driver would wait 15 mins and then frantically began to jump out of the bed. We were still half asleep and barely managed to pack our bathing suits and toiletries somehow. Continue reading “Iceland Trip Part II”
