A slice of the Almafi Coast: Positano
|Positano, Salerno, Southern Coast of Italy|
DAY 3: The next day, we had our free buffet breakfast at our hotel with this amazing view (refer to picture below). This breakfast setup was probably my favorite view of the entire trip. The food was delicious too! Since the hotel is so small (only 12 rooms), they don’t have a restaurant, but they did have a cook set up breakfast every morning and it was absolutely incredible. All these homemade pastries and meats and cheese and everything tasted so good.

We waited at the bus stop and there was a mad rush as the bus was crowded. We ended up not getting seats, but that’s what you get when you rely on public transportation, right? About a quarter of the way back to Sorrento, (put down your food or take a break if you are eating, because this is gross), a woman puked ALL over one of the bus doors (due to the motion sickness of the bus turning so much). It wasn’t too bad until it started to smell, then it was absolutely terrible the rest of the ride back. I felt so bad for the lady that was sitting next to her because she got puke on her leg, in her hair, etc. It was BAD. But it’s kind of a funny story now right?
We got off the bus at our hotel then went straight to the pool to relax. We ate our leftover pizza and swam in the pool. It was nice because we had it all to ourselves and it had jets (like a hot tub).
Then, we went back to our room and napped. We watched the sunset from our window. We
read books about the hotel. We ordered room service (daiquiris and lemon ice
cream), packed for Rome, did our nightly peppermint foot rubs and went to bed. At this point, my feet were killing me. I
was terrified for Rome because I knew it would be a ton of walking and
sightseeing and my feet were hurting so bad after Sorrento which wasn’t even
supposed to be a lot of walking. I researched online about swollen feet and
tried to rest my feet above my heart, but they still felt terrible. Let’s just say they would get worse before
they got better.
