Like any good story, a place has multiple sides, fascinating characters that draw you in, unexpected twists, and moments that make you fall in love. You can’t know a story from only reading a few pages, just like you can’t know a place until you’ve been there turning the pages day by day – being surprised by the twists and turns and falling in love with the people.
Right in the middle of the chaos of morning traffic in Amalfi’s Piazza Flavio Gioia, I stepped out of the car and walked over to watch the waves crashing against the beach and the sunshine on the water. Much better than the view waiting in the car. I looked over to the other side of the beach where I saw these two men from Amalfi strolling along the edge of the water. The umbrella, the sunshine, the silhouette – a perfect winter moment. I felt that familiar feeling in my chest as I fell in love with Amalfi just a little more watching this quiet scene. This is winter in Amalfi.
