A Day Driving The Amalfi Coast

So last month (which now feels like a lifetime ago), my family and I packed our dresses and suits and headed for Italian soil to celebrate the wedding of my cousin and his American bride in Sorrento! As well as an incredible wedding in a truly stunning setting and the rare chance to spend some precious down-time with the whole family, another highlight of the trip was exploring the Amalfi Coast.

All in all we had a great time on the island and found the hospitality of the Seychellois people to be warm, welcoming and genuine. The only negative experiences we had was the first hotel we stayed at (which I won’t go into any more detail about as this is not what this post is about!) and a bit of unfortunate cloudy and rainy weather for quite a few days which was disappointing…but what can you do about nature!
