The final few days of my stay at the villa were filled with so much fun, food, and exploring that it was hard to capture it all here without making this a novel. Below is a summary of the last few days. Most of the pictures are “snap shots” and not photos that focused on composition, however, I believe they illustrate the wonderful moments we all had.
Positano, Processo, and Party!
We took a leisurely afternoon boat ride to Positano to do a bit of shopping. On the way we stopped at the Emerald Grotto (no pictures) and this little cove.
The next day we relaxed by the pool, were served “street food” of the area and learned how to make mozzarella!
We were invited to Minori, a small town near our villa to make Limoncello.
Then off to lunch to the restaurant of the most famous pastry chef in Italy – Salvatore De Riso. His restaurant and factory is in Minori – he delivers to restaurants all over.
We also toured a 500- year old winery called Tenuta San Francesco which is owned and operated by 4 individuals.
Ravello was the next stop. It is a small town high above the Amalfi Coast and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This small town had a couple of beautiful villas that were open to the public.
Then we had the highlight of our cooking classes – PIZZA!
I had so much fun this week. Sophie, Claudia, Peppi, Antonio, and the whole family were so kind, generous, knowledgeable. They truly treated us as family.
The other guests quickly became like friends that I have known a lifetime. I will never forget this experience – ever. Thank you all.
I have had the thirst for adventure and travel my whole life. Recently I took up photography to capture some of the beautiful places, special moments and wonderful
people in my life.
