After driving countless kilometers from the north of Italy, the Amalfi Coast was a sensational sight to see. The anticipation of the journey there was well worth it though. I remember driving uphill for an extraordinary distance when, all of a sudden, the mountains parted just enough to see a sliver of what seemed like endless blue sky. At first glance, it looked like the earth had just melted away into an infinite abyss of sapphire haze. I had to rub my eyes to make sure they weren’t playing tricks on me. The sky and vast sea had blended into one, with no distinguishable seam. It’s at that moment, you realize just how high up you really are.
Colorful structures dot the cliffs aside the lemon trees and voluptuous vineyards that cloak the hillsides, creating a beautiful kaleidoscopic effect as you gaze down the coastline ahead. The roads writher around narrow bends like a mischievous snake, each turn quickening your heart rate with expectations of an impending head on collision with a motorbike or double-decker tour bus, but it didn’t matter. It’s a drive that is undoubtably one of the top scenic routes in the world but has also been proven to cause panic attacks amongst people. Something about it all seemed like magic to me. It felt rich with culture, like each little piece was a relic of history. I can honestly say it’s unlike any sight I’ve ever seen.
Spending the evening by the water in Positano was quite magical. As twilight approached I walked the shore made up of smooth pebbles as the tide gently rolled in and out. The night air was still and one by one all the lights from the homes and restaurants began to twinkle across the mountains. It was hard not to feel like a princess in my flowing dress as I sauntered down the cobblestone roads. I could now see why novels had been written about such an enchanting place.
