Many of you who have been regular readers of Ciao Amalfi over the past year will know how inspired I am on a daily basis by the distinctive beauty of the Amalfi Coast. I feel many days as if it is inside me now, as if it has become a part of who I am here in Italy. Now I can’t imagine my life anyplace else but here on the Amalfi Coast. This passion has diverted my career path from art historian to travel writer, a path that I can pursue and that keeps me here in Italy. And this is exactly where I want to be.


With this in mind, I can think of no better theme for a new weekly series than to present similar stories about passion, place and how where we are impacts and influences who we are. Tomorrow I’m excited to launch a new series on Ciao Amalfi called Travel Inspirations, where I will share guest posts by talented writers around the blogosphere. Along the way I might just share some of the spots on the Amalfi Coast and in Campania that have inspired my path. Stop back by tomorrow for the first Tuesday post of Travel Inspirations!

    Sounds wonderful, Laura! Looking forward to hearing about all of your travel inspirations. I haven't spent as much time in Campania as in other regions, so I'd love to learn about new places to visit! 🙂

    Brava Laura!
    Looking forward to this new exciting series.

    Unfortunately my dreams of a Positano Easter will have to wait 'til next year… my finances are running too low. 🙁

    Great idea for a new series Laura. I have just read and enjoyed the first one.

    I'm so very happy to meet you, we've been introduced by Daily Vitamin Sea. I, too, feel a complete passion for the Amalfi Coast…I could live there forever and be completely happy. My family, my poodle and myself have spent many happy times in Italy, we rented a villa in Massa Lubrense the last time we were there, and those moments will never be forgotten. My son, Steve, is a commercial photographer and may have some splendid pics for you, if you like. I would be delighted to share a few stories, because nothing I do is ever boring, especially if you're with Italians. Marsha
