La dolce vita Posted on 30/11/201730/11/2017 This September I took my sister on a girls trip to the Amalfi coast. September definitely is the perfect season to visit Italy. The evenings are still sweltering and most of the crowds have already left. Usually I travel to surf spots for holiday but this 5 day get-away to Italy was something new for me. Travelling with my sister is always the most fun! Not just because she is my personal photographer. But because all we did was eat, sleep and repeat. I completely understand why the eat part of the book eat pray love is about this country. It is nothing but amazing! The best pizza’s, pasta’s, mozzarella, ice cream, limoncello, prosecco ever! Besides eating and drinking we took refreshing dips in the ocean, hung out on the most beautiful beaches, wandered through old towns, had glamorous boat rides and walked up and down 1000 steps a day. Our AirBnb was at the top of the village of Minori which meant we had to walk up and down a lot of stairs to get there. The bonus was that we where up in between the lovely smelling lemon groves and that we had the best view over the little town tucked in between the cliffs of the Amalfi coast. If you are thinking of visiting this area I can recommend staying in Minori instead of the more well know town like Amalfi or Positano. Minori is a quiet and authentic coastal village where people still ride old vespa’s and fiat 500’s. It is the place to experience the real Italy. The other towns are just a 15 min bus ride away along the coasts winding roads or even better is taking one of the ferry’s.
