Arrivederci Positano!

imageMy heart is breaking…I’m waiting for my driver to take me to Rome,  desperately trying to capture every sensual pleasure I see around me.  The aromas that fill my villa from freshly baked bread from a not so far away bakery, the distant soft clatter of activity of the awakening city and these breathtaking views I want to never forget.

My last gelato on the Amalfi Coast. This reminds me of my pregnancy with Gina, having ice cream every day from 6 months till birth and never having it again for many years later.

So many beautiful markets lined the cobblestone roads. A food lover’s  fantasy…

imageAll I could think of was preparing a meal and what I would buy….if I lived here.

image

Every option of pasta neatly lined up right before my eyes…

image

And if you’re not wanting to cook, endless outdoor cafés…

image

Valentino…these names just make me melt…sharing how he makes his limoncello..

image

Imagine hand peeling lemon after lemon…

image

Big lemons!  I love how the leaves are still attached.

imageAs someone said to me, “it’s an experience that you will treasure forever, Linda”.

Benissimo!

  1. Oh, you’re making me long for Italy again. We plan to get to Rome in 2025, but I certainly hope we can manage another trip before then. You made marvelous memories 🙂

  2. It all looks so gorgeous. I love how ‘natural’ those lemons look too – not waxed and glossy and perfect but more as nature intended them to be. I bet you’re savouring every minute of your time in Italy – such a gorgeous country with not just great history and architecture and climate, but also cuisine xx

    1. It was all such a wonderful experience. I’ve never traveled abroad and have “lived” through your life and others who live in far away places. I’m glad I could share my experience.

  3. I am so far behind in my blogging duties, Linda. I just now read — and thoroughly enjoyed — each of your beautiful posts covering your Italian Holiday. I cannot begin to tell you how thrilled and happy I am that you were able to go to Italy. I’ve been to many of the same places and know full-well what it is like to walk about and explore each. Your friend was so right: this is a trip you’ll treasure for a lifetime. Be sure to toss some coins in the Trevi Fountain. They haven’t let me down yet — at least that’s what I thought when I tossed mine last May. 🙂
