Magical Memories of Positano

Positano bites deep. It is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone.” – John Steinbeck

      I’m planning to go to Greece and Italy – it’ll be an epic trip. I very much enjoyed following your Greece trip also.

    What hotel did you stay in while in Positano? I plan on going there in the future and I’d love a recommendation for a great hotel with a beautiful view. As usual, your pictures make me want to go to Italy.
