Nature and Landscapes
Urban and City
When you see this place, where do you think it is?
I give you a second here....
You probably thought along the lines of a nature reserve or simply out in the countryside somewhere, right? Wrong. In the middle of Sorrento, Italy, there is a bridge. And when I say in the middle, I mean between the main Plaza and the train station! Now, this bridge goes right across this ruin! If I were to turn around, I would look at about 3 restaurants and the main road plus 24321 little shops that are in the city centre :D
I was more than just confused that this would just sit there. There is no way to reach it as well - and it is not maintained in any way, shape, or form.
Having said that, it is also kinda awesome to have such a ruin untouched in the city centre. Other places would have made a 20 Euro pp attraction out of this place - but not Sorrento. Good Show Guys!
You know how a sunset usually works - sun is high, gets lower, reaches the horizon, disappears - and somewhere in between, there might be some nice colours in the clouds. BUT, the change in colours usually happens relatively gradually. Well, in this case, it didn't. In one moment, the sky was blue and dull, and within 10 seconds (I am not making this up!) everything went purple. It was like someone had changed a setting on a massive mood-light somewhere and switched it to "Oh Yeah".
Positano has an awesome beach! Granted, it does not have the perfect blue-lagoon sand that allows for living the sloth-life, but nonetheless, it is perfect for hanging out and having a beer. In fact, I had around 4 on the very same spot while waiting for the sun to get low enough to light this little pile of stones that I built around 7 times! Well worth the wait :)
