Over the last few months, I’ve read a handful of memoirs and contemporary fiction where travel and locales play a major role in the story. So I’ll have some book reviews to come that I think are great armchair travel reads – the perfect remedy to satiate your wanderlust when you can’t exactly leave town. First up is I Am Having So Much Fun Here Without You by Courtney Maum.
I wish that after every I hike I did, I could come back and relax at a villa as gorgeous as Villa Cimbrone. I could dine al fresco, sunbathe, walk around the gardens barefoot as I look out at the ocean. While that’s not my day-to-day reality, I’m so glad I toured the gardens of Villa Cimbrone in Ravello if only for a couple hours.
When I arrived in the Amalfi Coast, it was pouring rain and hail and also super windy. I had to keep my hood on and my head down but I still thought everything was beautiful. Then a couple days later, on a hike to the hilltop town of Ravello, the sun finally came out redefining the word beautiful to the max.
