I have seen this drawing of Amalfi Coast out of the corner of my eye all month. It is the Travel the World calendar by Rifle Paper Co. that sits on my desk at work. Every time I glimpse at it I feel happy and excited. I think the drawing is fun and I assume it captures the spirit of the Amalfi Coast. At least it’s what I think it will be like. Warm sun, sea air, boats, charming villages built in to cliffs and lemons…lots of lemons.
On our very last port stop on the cruise (April 27), we are in Naples. From Naples we have booked a tour of the Amalfi Coast with Mondo Guide. Mondo Guide has been great to work with so far. Our ship stops in Naples twice and we have another tour booked with them to tour Pompeii and Naples (with pizza lunch of course) earlier in the month. I’m really excited to visit the Amalfi Coast see the breathtaking views of the cliff side drive and quaint seaside towns first hand. Of course I’ve watched lots of videos to prepare.
With only a few days left in February, I will flip over to the next month soon. March is Kyoto – I’ve already looked – and it’s also a nice drawing with cherry blossoms. Oops, maybe I shouldn't have looked, that might be bad luck. Or maybe it means next spring I will go to Kyoto. I would love to see the cherry blossoms in Japan!
I will miss the drawing of the Amalfi Coast after Monday but I am looking forward to seeing (and smelling) it in real life soon.
