I will be leaving for Italy in less than a month and my main purpose in going this time is to spend time in a beautiful peaceful setting to relax and to write. The Amalfi Coast, and specifically, Positano is that place where I feel most relaxed and inspired. For me this special place on the Tyrhhenian Sea is magical and like a Paradise. When I am there I wish I could stay forever.
So this trip I am indulging my dreams and am staying in a beach side hotel where I have a balcony that opens to the sea and I can hear the sound of the waves as they roll against the shore a few hundred feet away.
I am not going here to play tourist or to run around sightseeing every day. Instead I am going here to write, to be inspired to work on my novel that I began two years ago and hope to complete and publish in early 2017.
While I am dedicating most of my time there to writing, I am not going to be a hermit and never leave the hotel. I plan on walking every day, and staircases like this one are the only way to reach the center of town. So I will be sure to get my daily dose of Italian exercise.
I do plan on a few things while I am there, so stay tuned. I am intent on hiking the Path of the Gods, an activity that I never would have even considered a few years ago. I am a little more fit and in better shape now, so I am eager to experience this walk high above the town. In case you missed my post about it, you can read more about this here. I will definitely be posting photos on Facebook from that hike, even though I may not have time to write about it until after I return home.
I’m interested in your thoughts, so please leave a comment.
Grazie and Ciao.
