My Last Day in Sorrento

Sorrento - Dolly GoolsbyOh, I have such a bundle of mixed feelings: in one part of my heart there is joy that I am going home, and will see my friends and family once again. I have one great-granddaughter, Natalee, that I haven’t met yet, so that will be a happy experience to be able to meet her. Then another great-granddaughter, Aurielle, who must have grown so much since I last saw her, it will be fun to get re-acquainted.

Plus all the other family members, and Frank, who has the patience of a saint, to encourage my travels, and is always there for me. Yes, I will be happy to be home, for these reasons.

However, the biggest part of my heart always remains in Italy. I am sad to leave, as there are still so many places I haven’t been, and so many places where I want to return. Yes, I admit it. I have been very fortunate to be able to travel like I do, and I suppose I am a bit spoiled. I know I will come back to Italy, so I will try not to be too sad.

Last night, Susan and I returned to our favorite ristorante in Sorrento, for our farewell dinner. We had dinner there 3 out of the 6 nights of our Sorrento stay. We were treated like long-lost relatives every time we visited. The food is so good, and the owners, who are also wait-staff, are so genuinely caring.

Sorrento is indeed a lovely place, even if, during the day, the city is packed with tour groups, from cruise ships, from independent tour guides..I don’t know where they all came from. We tried to find quieter places to visit during those times.

We have been in Italy for 3 months. It would be hard to single out just one favorite place, or event.

The hikes in the Dolomites, the village of Burano near Venice, the Cinque Terre, all these bring back special memories. Plus the four weeks we got too spend in Montepulciano. All great experiences.

So now, I will leave you, and leave Italy behind. Arriverderci until next time, all my friends, and Bell’Italia.

Ciao for now,
