In love with Italy

Ciao!
I am currently In Italy having a lovely time. At this moment I'm staying in a place called 'Alberobello' which is located in a cute little place in the country side. Last week though my parents and I stayed in Sorrento for a week. Having this been my first time in Italy I can safely say that I would love to go back. Sorrento itself is actually quite a small place and you could probably explore the whole town in a day or so. But we spent a few days taking coach/bus trips to different towns near and far by and it's so nice to adventure out into the towns around the cliff sides.

In the main square of Sorrento there's plenty of restaurants and little cafe's to choose from, but there's also a lot of restaurants hidden away down the narrow pathways that also have small shops at each side. I'll tell you one thing though if you are on a Carb diet Italy may not be the place for you if you are easily tempted! Like myself Italy loves their Carbs with things like pizza, pasta, bread and all that. I admit at home I probably eat more Carbs than I should (I can't help it they're too tasty!) but I actually feel a little 'carbd' out haha!



^ The main shopping street right off the square, great for cloth shopping

The apartment we stayed in has probably been one of my favourite places that I've stayed in. With it's white walls and windows that fill the room with light to it's unique decore and great views from the balcony, what more could you ask for? The balcony was perfect to watch the sun go down (sunsets are one of my favourite things) and there was also an amazing fire work display on the last night that seemed to go on forever, but it was all very pretty!






We also went to take a look round the market which mostly sold clothes and shoes but also a few bits of food.



I had a lot of fun rummaging around the beauty section, surprisingly I didn't actually buy anything!

Vesuvius the volcano was very much in site from the balcony. Volcano's in general are one of those things that just sort of amaze me so it was a pretty cool experience to walk (half way) around the top. We also walked about 20 mins to the actual top too which was very steep but not as bad as I thought it would be! Definitely something to add to your 'to do' list if you ever stop by near Pompeii in Italy. Also about half an hour jounrey from Sorrento (on the train) 


Here's a few more photo's from the trip so far.
















Sad to be going home soon, I love having time away from everything and just being able to relax as much as you want. Keep an eye out for an 'Alberello' post coming up soon! Hope your all having a great week. For more regular updates on holidays and other general photo's feel free to follow my Instagram 'Thingsworthcapturing'
Until next time!
