The highlight of our trip to the Amalfi Coast was the yacht experience. We took to the open waters on two seperate yachts that accommodated up to 8 persons. The entire journey was an hour each way. Sometimes we rode fast, and others times slow. Often close enough to take pictures of the many picturistique towns we were passing by. Most notably, the town of Positano that is often dipicted in pictures of the Amalfi Coast.
The time flew by as we took pictures, sung old school hip-hop, and drank champaign. For the couple on the trip, it was the cummulation of week one of their marriage after a small private ceremony in Rome the week before. For others, the trip was their birthday gift to themself, and it felt good for their soul to be "free" as they approach their mid-thirties. For many, the entire week of experiencs were unparallel to any travel they've ever been on, even if they've been to the region before.
As we stepped foot in the town of Capri, we were considered instant celebrities of some sorts. Our precense created a stir as if we were VIPs, and our pictures were snapped by random people as we headed to the top of Capri. Many in our group traveled to the top via the funicular and few used the chairlift. Capri is famed for it's Blue Grotto where the waters, surrounded by a cave, naturally glows electric blue. It's an astonighing view from the the top as we piered down to the waters below.
After a few hours of taking pictures, eating pizza, and drinking lemon granitas, we set foot back on our yacht to the town of Amalfi where we originated. On our return trip, we laughed until our stomachs hurt and even cried a little, as our entire trip was coming to an end the next day. This was a day we'll never forget!!
