Italy and the Path Less Taken

Having spent a significant part of my childhood in Italy has left

an equally significant part of my heart in Napoli.  
It meant so much to share this corner of the world
with the man I love and with whom I share life. 
I cannot wait to bring my sons home to Italy
To watch their eyes light up as they taste pizza.
To which Napoli is the birthplace.
Though I may be biased I always recommend Napoli as a travel destination.
There are so many sightseeing stops for tourists.
The islands of Capri, Ischia, and Procida. The coast drive of the Amalfi Coast and Sorrento.  
Mt. Vesuvius, Pompeii and Herculaneum. Not to mention all the museums and churches.
Sometimes its about taking a more organic approach to traveling
which gives you a more rounded experience in another country and culture.
Take the path less traveled or not traveled at all.  
One of my good friends Liisa, from our time together in Hawaii,
was living in the heart of Napoli last summer when we visited.
She took us on a walk I had not experienced in my time growing up in that city.
It was on narrow pathways up to the top by way of many cobbled steps.  
There was both beauty and destruction to be found.
Art to behold in many facets on our walk.
I was constantly snapping photographs with my camera
just to remember and nto let any details get missed.
We saw some posters of a self portrait put up by a local photographer my friend knew.
Remnants of old mixed in with the fingerprints of the modern world.
To top it all off was the stunning view from the top before we made our way down.
The bay of Napoli with Mt. Vesuvius in the background.
Perfection not to be missed.

    Amazing photos!
    I am only about a 11 hour drive from Napoli (which is kind of far, but in the grand scheme of things, it’s really not) and I am dead set on going there one day and when I get there, I’m going to stuff my face with pizza!
