Mrs. CurryOnTravel and I could not pass up the opportunity to enjoy the small town, admire the tulips, and climb a windmill.

Sunny St. Thomas

Who wouldn’t love a beach vacation, spending time in the sun and the sand; and getting away from a cold and windy winter? That is exactly what we got, when Mrs. CurryOnTravel and I spent the weekend in St. Thomas.

Beautiful British Columbia

Summers can get hot in Texas. What better place to get away from the scorching heat than British Columbia, Canada?

Sunbathing in Southern Italy

Sorrento was the last stretch of our 2-week trip through Italy, and to me it felt as if we saved the best for last. In our 3-day stay, we caught the sights in Positano, Amalfi, Ravello, and Pompei. In the middle of May, we experienced the glorious sun in Southern Italy. The beaches, the food, and copious amounts of limoncello make for amazing memories.

The Island of Capri

On the eight day of our trip, we took the ferry from Naples to the Island of Capri (pronounced Cap-ri). The island is 45 minutes by ferry from Naples, and if you take the 8 AM ferry from Molo Beverello, as we did, you can experience the bustling of the island on the port of Marina Grande. The hodge-podge of activity as tourists are coming and leaving the island, along with others taking a naval tour of the island, it is a sight to see. The small, but beautiful, Capri is the stuff of dreams with crystal-clear water, delicious food, and the sweetest of wines. The island encompassed one of the most photogenic 24 hours of our trip.

We started the tour of Southern Italy with a day in Naples. Continue reading “A Day in Naples”
