After Rome and Naples, our next Contiki destination was Amalfi Coast. Seeing Capri, Sorrento and Positano in real life is a dream come true for me. I remember having screenshots of these places on my phone so I can remind myself to work hard and save money so that I can go here in the future. Who knew I would be able to do it this year! I also didn’t spend so much because Contiki’s Mediterranean Escape package is super affordable considering the cities you’ll be going to. Hope you enjoy my Amalfi travel diary- it’s by far my favourite one this year.
First stop: Sorrento. Here they showed us how they make mozzarella and made us try the cheese after. It was really delicious and you could tell it was very fresh! I’m craving right now!
What a view.
The busy streets of Sorrento.
We had a couple free hours before heading to Positano so we went around looking for the best gelato in town. Everyone kept saying to go to Primavera and they were right- their gelato is amazing. Good thing we were a big group so everybody ordered different flavours and just shared everything. Woot!
Of course we had to kill time by the beach. Their beach beds and umbrellas are so inviting! We went to a private restaurant so we could rent our own space because the public beach was so full. It was the best decision ever.
Mama Contiki Maite also booked two boats for the group so we could do island hopping! Woohoo! I think this was the most unforgettable moment for me in Amalfi Coast for me because I jumped off a boat for the first time. I don’t know how to swim properly and I’ve always been scared to do it but seeing 30+ people swimming and cheering for me- I just had to do it. Nakakahiya! Hahahaha. It was such a wonderful feeling being able to finally do it! At sa Capri ko pa ginawa! Bongga!
We brought wine, beer, chips, cheese and fruits and just chilled the entire morning. What a way to start your day.
Our next agenda was to take a ride on the chairlift to the top of Monte Solaro to get an exquisite view of the island. Everything’s seriously beautiful in every direction you look. The water is absolutely perfect in shades of blue and turquoise.
New friends = new memories!
Off to Positano! AAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!
This colourful and lively city is just too attractive. I can seriously live here. Words can’t describe how much I love this place.
We went to the famous lemon farm because duh, they’re famous for limoncello. Haha. Apparently, they eat their lemons without peeling it. Yep, I tried it myself and loved it. I’m a sucker for anything sour so this was like my candy land.
We tried their lemon cake and lemon juice too. It was super sweet and tangy even without sugar.
I have nothing but good memories here and I can’t wait to be back. More of my Contiki trip soon! BMS.
