We’re back! From both trips (one that I was aware of, one that I was not)! It’s pretty brutal trying to ease back into normal life after living in fantasy land for a week, but I’ll do my best. Let’s start with a travel post!
We had a very long day of travel on Monday, so we pretty much just got ourselves to the hotel, poured ourselves into bed, and ordered room service on the first night. On Tuesday, I had my first sleep in in what felt like YEARS, opened up some birthday cards, and then we set out for an adventure! Our hotel was really close to the central station, so we hopped on a train and made the (long, hot, sticky, kind of harrowing) journey to Sorrento!
Sorrento has been a playground for the rich and famous for basically ever, but as we are neither rich nor famous, we decided to see the area via one of my favorite methods: A big red bus! These tours are almost always worth it (one quite literally saved my toes from freezing off in Berlin) but this one was a tiny bit underwhelming. I’m glad we did it as we likely wouldn’t have gotten to see so much of the gorgeous Sorrrento coast otherwise, but we couldn’t actually hop off unless we wanted to stay put for two hours (it’s generally much less than that, giving you enough time to grab a coffee or snack, snap a few photos, and hop on the next bus) and we were on the second to last bus of the day anyway, so lest we got ourselves stranded, we stayed put.
But, look at the views. Pretty fab, right?
After our tour, we made our way to the city center for food, toasts, and gelato.
And I made this face, repeatedly, at the idea of getting another year older:
