I feel like everyone I follow on social media is planning or is on some sort of trip out of the country. I have definitely been bitten by the travel bug, and am longing for a trip somewhere! Are you planning any trips anywhere soon?
Since I’ve been day dreaming, longing and pining, I thought it only fair to share 3 of the places I’m dying to visit with you.
Positano, Amalfi Coast Italy
Positano is a cliff-side village on southern Italy’s Amalfi Coast. It’s a very popular holiday destination with pebble beaches, steep, narrow streets, and many boutiques and cafes. It’s Chiesa di Santa Maria Assunta has a majolica-tiled dome and a 13th-century Byzantine icon of the Virgin Mary, and the Sentiero degli Dei hiking trail links Positano to other coastal towns.
Italy is the place of my dreams! I even took Italian for 2 semesters in college! I first came across this place watching travel vlogs on Youtube and fell in love! The view, the beaches, the villages on the mountain, the view, the colorful houses, the people and did I mention the view! It is such a beautiful, quaint place. I grew up on a mountain so I’m used to the hilly terrain. I am so looking forward to the workout from walking the many flights of stairs around the village. Bellissimo!
Cape Town, South Africa
Back to the motherland! Well the African slaves from Jamaica originated mostly from Ghana, so on the opposite end of the continent, but motherland nonetheless.
Cape Town is a port city on South Africa’s southwest coast, on a peninsula beneath the amazing Table Mountain. The Table Mountains are so beautiful and stunning, and the South African beaches are so beautiful!
Amazing features: slowly rotating cable cars climb to Table mountain’s flat top for sweeping views of the city, the busy harbor and boats heading for Robben Island and the notorious prison that once held Nelson Mandela that is now a living museum.
Portland, Maine USA
I fell in love with Maine through watching the early 70s to late 80s tv series M.A.S.H where the lead character, Benjamin Franklin “Hawkeye” Pierce, was from Maine and always dreamed of his hometown when he was stuck in the Vietnam war abroad. I watched that entire series nonstop for about 2-3 weeks a few summers ago! I was crushed, devastated and depressed when it was over; to this day I’m gutted! I love seafood, waterfronts and beaches so Maine is the spot for me.
Portland, Maine is set on a peninsula extending into Casco Bay. The Old Port waterfront features working fishing wharves and converted warehouses with restaurants and shops. Nearby, the Western Promenade is a public park atop a bluff, offering river and mountain views.
