Beaches

Hey Lovely Readers!

It appears that we have neglected the blog this week, but I’m here to tell you that I have four new posts going up today! I had some tough work choices to make and now that I’m past it I’m dreaming about one thing in particular. The beach. I really need a beach right now! This time last year, I was living in Italy, and one small train ride would take us to what we so needed- a beach!

So, here is my list of beaches I have been to that I have really enjoyed!

  1. Sorrento, Italy– if you go up to the collapsed ancient roman villa (Villa Pollio Felice)- check out our older post- just remember there is technically no beach to sit and read on. However, I liked this too, because I just floated there in the nice salty water and watched the sky! I seriously miss it. If you want more of the ocean experience, you can go outside and swim through the crack in the wall, however, I found that just swimming on the inside was perfect for me and way more relaxing! I highly recommend!13620881_10154522787770695_2456017493217757636_n (1)
  2. If you do want to be able to read your book, still go to Sorrento’s public beach! It is still very beautiful! The public beach does fill up fast, so it might be nice if you take some extra euros and save them for a private area! There are some really great beach setups! When you are done with the beach, you can climb the long stairs back up to get to the city, and at the top there is an amazing view.13620390_10154522790690695_1467559127934502551_n3. Seiano was another town we went to for a beach. It is a little bit rocky, however just as nice! For us it was good because it was closer and easier to get to then waiting a 30 min train ride from Pompeii. However, if I know you, you will most likely be staying in Sorrento and not in Pompeii (or somewhere close). Seiano is one of those off places that I feel like doesn’t cost as much and is still just a short train ride away from Sorrento! It also has a very nice beach and a gelato place very close to it as well (which is always recommended).IMG_2351.JPG
  3. Over to Hawaii now! Honolulu has a beautiful beach with white sand. The water is pure blue and in places like Hanauma Bay has clear water for snorkeling! Send me your pictures of the pretty fish! Seriously, My finger was in front of the camera I bought for almost all of the pictures. I felt bad for the people that were developing them! Nothing interesting to look at by any means! I recommend a beach day at Hanauma Bay!IMG_0575
  4. Greece is my last place. The ones in Athens are nasty- don’t go there. But I would have loved to go to one right beside Poseidon’s temple! That was the clearest, and bluest water I have ever seen! I also recommend going to some of the islands for a day- for both Greece and Italy! They do have the best beaches and they are not as busy!

Those are my top 5! I am booked for a Mexico trip in November, and a Europe trip in May (I’m coming for you Nice!), so there will be an updated list I’m sure!
