As the tourists start slowly trickling into Amalfi and the cities along the Amalfi Coast emerge from their long winter naps, I am reminded again just how much I enjoy seeing people discover this beautiful part of the world. I love sharing the beauty and history of the Amalfi Coast with people, because it reminds me again and again how much this place means to me. Last week I woke up to a beautiful morning, which was made even better by knowing two particular people who would be enjoying the lovely day on their first visit to Amalfi. This week’s Sunday Shout-out goes to Valerie Schneider over at 2 Baci in a Pinon Tree, who has been blogging recently from just south of the Amalfi Coast on the Cilento coastline in southern Campania.
A few weeks ago, Valerie found Ciao Amalfi and introduced me to her great blog. Last week I had the pleasure to meet Valerie and her husband Bryan when they made a day trip up the coast to visit Amalfi. They picked a perfect day! We enjoyed what felt more like an early summer day than an early spring day by sitting outside in the sun and enjoying good conversation and lemonade at the Gran Caffè overlooking the beach in Amalfi. Head on over to 2 Baci in A Pinon Tree to read more about Valerie and Bryan’s springtime adventures in southern Italy, including some unexpected snowy weather in Basilicata! Keep exploring the blog to read about their life in the beautiful town of Ascoli Piceno in the Marche region of Italy, which Valerie’s blog has just recently introduced me to. One more place to add to my “Must See List” of Italy! Thank you to Valerie and Bryan for a wonderful morning in Amalfi!
