paris & italy

i was informed last night that i have been neglecting my blog, so here's a quick one to give everyone their fix :)  as most of you probably know, mom and i ventured over to europe this past month for a little adventure through paris and the amalfi coast!  it was incredible to say the least, and i can't wait to go back again someday... hopefully someday will turn out to be sooner rather than later!  at any rate, we spent three days in paris and then seven on the amali coast doing various things. 

first off, paris was amazing!  i made mom walk up the stairs of the eiffel tower instead of taking the lift (another thing to cross off my life to do list!), i also made her ride the farris wheel by the tuilleries so we could have a better view of the city!  we trekked all over the city in the three short days we were there... here are some of my favorite shots from that part of the trip.

(shots to be added soon... computer is being a pain in my butt!)


the second part of the trip was in italy... we stayed in a small hotel in minori, which is a neighboring town of amalfi.  we took part in a three day cooking class there, where i tried and loved fresh anchovies, go figure!  we went to a mozzarella factory, a limoncello factory, an old roman villa, pompei, a pasteria, and more!!  the food was gorgeous and fresh and i can't wait to make the recipes again here (if i can only get my hands on some fresh anchovies!).

after the cooking class was over, we had four days to do whatever our little hearts desired, so... we spent one day on the beach in minori, then took a day trip to positano and walked around all day.  the following day we took a boat trip around the grottos (minus the blue grotto, which was closed because of rough water :( ), and then to capri.  while in capri we also took the single chair lift up to ana capri, which had insane views of the whole island!  needless to say, i took several pictures!  the last day on the coast was spent in positano again, but this time we just sat on the beach all day reading and people watching... perfect ending to an unforgetable adventure!!
