Emily and Dane recently celebrated their honeymoon on the beautiful Almafi Coast and instead of me telling you about how it was, Emily wrote about the trip herself! Read about her favorite moments of gelato, getting lost, and an unforgettable romantic dinner.
“As die-hard Michiganders, our vacations rarely include a trip out of state, let alone a luxurious once-in-a-lifetime honeymoon on the beautiful Amalfi Coast of Italy. And so, we soaked up every moment of bliss, from the posh hotels and breathtaking views to the unending cups of cappuccino and fresh seafood. When I think of our most perfect honeymoon, the moments that come to mind include departing the JK Place Hotel of Capri on a GEM car, waving back as the entire staff gives us a heartfelt send-off and our arrival to Positano, greeted by a luggage courier who didn’t know quite enough English (nor did we know enough Italian) to instruct us to the hotel. With that, we started with a few scoops of gelato, and set out to find Le Sirenuse; which we did, but not without a few misguided turns and a lot of laughs.”
“We loved our chic and sophisticated accommodations at Palazzo Avino, which was only a few steps away from the quaint village center. Each afternoon we would visit the grocer for a small package of fresh salami and cheese to take with us back to our room for an afternoon snack before dinner. Finding ourselves without any euros one day, that kind grocer even sent us off with our goods and simply asked that we come back the next day with payment! I didn’t know that kind of doing business even existed anymore! But it does in Ravello, like something out of a favorite novel or movie. Speaking of something out of a movie, our last evening included a romantic dinner at Villa Maria’s and our own private concert back at Palazzo Avino. As the pianist sang “Have I Told You Lately” and we danced, I couldn’t help but shed a tear thinking of just how blessed Dane and I have been to have found each other, and to have started our marriage in the most perfect fashion, on the Amalfi Coast. Ok, I was a little sad to be going home the next day too ;)”
