A reader asked me about my last post, how on earth did I manage to take some photos in Positano without any people in the background. Well, when I’m traveling, I love waking up early. I get to catch the sun rise and enjoy as much as I can before it gets too crowded. Waking up early also stretches out the day, which is really great when your trying to pack your day with as much sightseeing as possible.

Since we were staying right on the beach, it was imperative we could walk as far as our legs would let us. At every turn, there were nothing but spectacular views. From staying on the beach or shacking it up on the hillside, there’s no bad way to stay at Positano. It’s truly breathtaking no matter where you are situated.

Our destination was the Cathedral of St. Andrew. When we got there, the city was already full of life. I didn’t take as many photos here because I would rather spend the day sightseeing than waiting idly until people passed by to get the perfect photo. Sometimes, you just have to choose the situation wisely. Which is another reason why I like getting up early to get my picturesque shots in La Sponda at La Sirenuse Hotel in Positano, ItalyLa Sponda at La Sirenuse Hotel in Positano, Italy La Sponda at La Sirenuse Hotel in Positano, ItalyAmalfi was nothing short of amazing. After sightseeing, we had dinner reservations at La Sponda at the La Sirenuse hotel. The restaurant ambiance was enchanting, the food was delightful, the sparkling wine was delicious and the view was first class. It was such an amazing experience. You would be doing yourself a disservice if you came all the way to Positano and not sit down at La Sponda for a meal.

You can often find someone making them for you on the spot. Also if you dare to bring any ceramics home, Positano has the most outstanding selection. I fell absolutely in love with every ceramic store. Unfortunately, I knew they would get crushed transporting them back to the states. Instead, I opted for some homemade limoncello. Positano always smelled of ripened lemons as you’re walking through it’s adorable alleyways. The limoncello there is also the best I have ever had!

I’ve been dying to go to Italy for ages now. Cinque Terre is sooooooo high up on that list. Sigh. One day. The Amalfi Coast though, is something else too. Loving your photos, I can almost feel those sea breezes.

That Zimmerman dress looks absolutely stunning on you and I couldn’t think of a more beautiful background to model it. Your photos are beautiful to look at, it’s hard to choose a favourite but if I had to I would pick the very last photo and the second one 🙂 Positano is such a beautiful place, I was only able to visit there for a very short time as part of a tour of the Amalfi coast, can’t wait to go back there one day.
