June 14, 2015, Part 2: Sorrento

Here's a direct quote from my diary:

"After another hour on the bus we arrived in Sorrento. The streets are narrow and scooters flit around like deranged mosquitoes."

I honestly don't know how our driver managed to maneuver our enormous tour bus through these narrow streets. Especially with clouds of scooters buzzing around.

We started our afternoon in Sorrento with a very interesting demonstration on inlaid wood, not really my style, but I can appreciate the artistry and the precision of it all had me swooning.  We had a few hours of free time before loading back onto the bus and heading to our hotel. Some of the kids made their way down to the water, the rest of us honed our shopping skills. This town is amazing and beautiful and I want my whole family to move here so I can live there.
Enjoy the pics!

I have a bridge thing...
 ... and a fence thing
 and a sky thing... and a water thing...
 and a flower thing.
 and a boat thing.

but thankfully NOT an italian driving thing. 
I would have died of old age by the end of the afternoon if i was George.
Sorrento. Isn't it just GLORIOUS???

Okay, so that's Karen and Marc in front of me, to the left, there is this crazy chasm filled with flora and fauna and there's this structure down there. Finally spotted the steps, but what goes down must come up and I was okay right where I was.

because you have to.

 Hi MOM!
Karen and I both immediately thought of our niece Gabriella when we saw this outfit. She of course would also have to have a coordinated purse.

 Seriously, who's with me?
I know it's almost the exact same picture but it's also almost the exact same awesome. I don't know about you, but awesome times 2 is my favorite.

and that's when the neighborhood went to pot... 
haha... kidding. 

 Sorrento is so awesome, it can overcome terrible plastic patio furniture.

The restaurant below is on the other side of the rail (and down a bit, obviously) from the picture above. The next pic is the rest of the view.

you know you want to.
