Vacation Diary Part 2 \ Capri & Positano, Italy

Ciao bellas!  I hope you're all having a great week so far!  Can you believe today is the first day of May?  Summer is soooooo soon! :)

Today I wanted to share more of my vacation pictures.  Initially I thought that I'd share all of my pictures from Italy in one post, but after going through all of my photos I think that it's best to split them up rather than bombard you with literally hundreds of pics!  Seriously, everything in Italy makes for a good photo!

After Israel, Adam & I flew directly from Tel Aviv to Rome, which was only a 3 hour flight.  I was beyond excited to be back in Italy; I just feel like Adam & I have so much history in Italy since he proposed to me there in 2012, and last year we were married in Tuscany.  So for that reason, Italy will always be so special to me. 

Our first stop on our 10 day tour of the Amalfi Coast was Capri.  Capri was absolutely magical!  We spent 3 nights staying at Hotel La Minerva, which was the most adorable boutique style hotel located in a quiet section of Capri that is very close to the high end shops {perfect for me!}.  I would highly, highly suggest staying here if you are considering a trip to Capri.  The attention to detail that they pay to each guest is second to none. 

During our stay in Capri, we did quite a bit of reading on our balcony {I read Gone Girl in 2 days!}, toured around the island + visited Ana Capri, went on a hike, got custom sandals made {a real tradition in Capri}, shopped, ate amaaaaazing food {EATaly as my friend Irina calls it} and drank entirely too much wine.  This basically set the tone for the rest of our trip on the Amalfi Coast; drink vino, eat pizza with a side of pasta, and daily gelato.....Bliss!

After Capri, we took a quick 30 minute ferry to Positano.  I was thrilled to visit Positano because it has been a bucketlist destination of mine for years!  Positano was breathtakingly beautiful, but by comparison, it didn't come close to measuring up to Capri.  I wish that we would have just extended our time in Capri and only taken a day trip to Positano.

There was one great aspect of Positano however.  I had a little surprise up my sleeve!  One of my favorite photographers that Adam & I both follow on instagram, KT Merry, was scheduled to be in the area hosting a photography workshop.  When I found this out, I immediately reached out to her about doing a surprise 1 year anniversary photo session with Adam.  The timing was absolutely perfect because she was free during the 2 days we were in Positano, and she was completely on board with the surprise!

The session was so much fun; we took pictures all around the town of Positano with the sherbert colored houses built into the side of the mountain as the beautiful background.  I can not wait to see the photos!

Here's a selection of photos from our time in Capri, and Positano.

This was such a beautiful time of year to visit - wisteria was in full bloom all around the Amalfi Coast!

We did a whole lot of this - wine + relaxation.

Picture perfect.

I loved the simple but chic decor of our hotel {think gorgous blue & white tiles everywhere, and linen everything!}

Beautiful Positano.

I love this picture so, so much!  Framer for sure :)
