Surprises can be a beautiful thing. That is what the coastal town of Sorrento, Italy became to me when I visited enroute to the Amalfi coast. You see, Sorrento’s town center is located atop coastal cliffs and this one morning I wandered down a cobblestone path until eventually arriving at the Port of Marina Grande. I was charmed by this special spot and it’s atmosphere of a forgotten world.
I had the company of fishermen (with their small dogs) who delicately argued with each other as they prepared fishing nets and a woman (Carolina) who sold me some of her prized produce; it is evident that this small community is proud of their heritage and customs. And so I enjoyed my nectarine with only the sound of lapping water, and tried to imagine what a life here would feel like. It’s probably not bad if this morning is any example…
I thought you’d appreciate this experience, so please enjoy.
