Europe Trip- Day 6: July 3, 2012

AMALFI COAST
By Kristin

We went to Capri!!! We drove through Maiori, Minori, and Amalfi Town to catch the boat to Capri.  The boat ride was about an hour long, but had the most amazing views; Josh picked a great spot to sit on the boat!  We saw Sorento and Pasitano and then arrived to the Island of Capri.

We did an optional boat tour seeing Capri and also saw a little too much of an Italian 'model.'  We saw the choral grotto, green grotto, and white grotto.  We also saw the 'Tunnel of Love!'

Capri
After we went sightseeing for a bit and took a funicular train higher up, we then did another optional tour of Ana Capri.  In order to get to the top of Ana Capri, we had to ride a ski lift 1,900 feet to Monte Solaro.  I'm sure you can imagine the amount of photos that were taken :)  Luckily part of the day was cloudy because it was hot, hot, hot!!

Locally grown lemons and lemoncello ;)
Amalfi Town
We took the boat back to Amalfi Town and did some sightseeing and shopping there and then came back to the hotel.  Dinner was supposed to be provided, but it looked like two dishes had anchovies so we went to La Vela and had another spectacular dinner.  We got two drinks and had an amazing appetizer all 'on the house'.  Ciao Amalfi :(

Personally might be my favorite meal we had: penne vodka. 
I love it at home, I LOVE it even more in Italy :)
Kristin's Favorite Part of the Day:
Monte Solaro...views, views, views.  I also liked the ski lift on the way up because it was quiet, gorgeous, and I was able to have some quiet time to pray and stare at God's greatness.

Josh's Favorite Part of the Day:
Monte Solaro

Kristin's Biggest Surprise of the Day:
The hotel's awful food choices

Josh's Biggest Surprise of the Day:
Getting to Monte Solaro...only had to ride a swing!

Gelato Count:
Josh: 0
Kristin: 1 (Kit Kat...favorite! and guianua or something like that)
