It's hard for me to explain the deep love I have for Italy and the Italian culture after this last trip. It's more than just the beautiful countryside and amazing food that so many people rave about - it's an obsession with the gorgeous language, a love for its people, and an adoration for the culture and history that calls to my heart. So, as you can imagine, when it came time to leave this amazing country and its lovely people, I was reluctant to leave. The cloudy skies seemed appropriate as we took time to have a final espresso at Andrea Pansa and said "Arrivederci" to our new friends.
Once we said goodbye to Amalfi, we traveled by bus back to Salerno for a pizza lunch and then took the train back to Milan where we flew back to the US the next morning. Arrivederci, Italia. Until we meet again, you will always have a special place in my heart.
