Italy’s Amalfi Coast

A little while back I posted an entry about contacting a cousin currently living in Italy (you can read that post by clicking here). Plans are coming together nicely for the upcoming trip and I find myself becoming more and more excited for it. In honor of said adventure, today’s photography blog post image is from the small Italian town of Positano, located in Italy’s famous Amalfi Coast.

My cousin lives in the town of Curno, Italy; about an hour northeast of Milan. As I was looking through Italy travel books I was quite pleased with the fact that nothing was mentioned of the town he lives in. Apparently it’s a bit off of the tourist radar.

I love that.

Docks of Positano, Italy

Earlier this week I shot an e-mail to a cousin I’ve never met. He lives not far from Milan, Italy, and I’ll be in his neck of the woods later this year.

I’m a big believer in family and, while I’ve been to Europe before, this is the first time I’ll be going knowing family who lives there. When I clicked “send” on the e-mail, I was far more excited then I thought I’d be.

I like the idea of visiting friends and family when I’m in the neighborhood, and I really like the idea of an international twist to it.

In honor, the above picture is from Positano, Italy. My wife and I visited there in 2005 on our first trip together out of the country. We spent the day lounging on the beach; she napped in the sun, I watched the boats come and go while playing with rocks. In the evening we took a taxi to the top of the mountain for a fantastic Italian dinner at a restaurant overlooking the village.

I’m really looking forward to the prospect of going back to Italy, but this time meeting up with family.
