My husband and I go rock-climbing in Italy and we always make a pit-stop through our tour to the Amalfi Coast. I mean, look at this picture: how could we not! That Mediterranean coastline on the Salerno Gulf, the sunshine, those winding and winding roads. It’s spectacular – and even that word does it little justice. When we visit, we almost always stop at small restaurants that are right on the coast: We eat fresh fish right from the sea, we drink deliciously cold Italian Chardonnay and we take in the salty scents of the ocean. There’s truly nothing quite like it. It’s a small, intimate and charming spot that cements so many memories for the two of us.
What always sticks with me is the buildings: so beautifully colourful they look as though they’re actually part of the rocks and built into the ocean itself. It feels like you’re hanging off the side of a cliff, which I’m a bit fond of given my husband and I travel to do exactly that!
