Hey! It’s me again.

I know.

I’ve been hiding.

Amongst a seemingly endless search for jobs and apartments, tackling my inbox, and just trying to be more present in the moment for my loved ones, I’ve admittedly put my blog on the back-burner. But it shouldn’t be that way. I’m trying to do better.

Read N Review: Midnight in the Piazza by Tiffany Parks

IMG_5536.jpg

If you are not already familiar with my ‘RNR’ series here on the blog, it’s a monthly series where I read and review a book that I have recently read. This way, I am holding myself accountable to read at least one book a month, and although I haven’t done such a great job at it recently, it’s the effort that counts right?

This month I am reviewing a very special book, and the first one where I personally know the author! Tiffany Parks, the author of Midnight in the Piazza, is editor at Where Rome magazine and co-host of the podcast, The Bittersweet Life. I thankfully had the chance to work with Tiffany on the The Bittersweet Life podcast this past winter/spring.

Positano Travel Guide

Positano-Amalfi Coast

Three years after traveling to Positano for the first time, we finally made it back and took a weekend trip there from Rome over the holiday weekend. Positano was my favorite place we traveled to during our first vacation in Italy in 2015. I always knew we would be back eventually but I never could have imagined that the events would have unfolded in the way that they did and we would be making our return to Positano after coming up on 2 years of living abroad.

Positano is a special place and one that I’m quite fond of. It’s a cliffside village in the south of Italy, located on the Amalfi Coast, very well-known for its insanely beautiful and picturesque landscape. You have probably seen many photos on Instagram of this town with its colorful houses perched among hills with stunning mountains and beaches alongside it. Let me just tell you…photos do not do this place justice and you will just have to check it out for yourself to really appreciate its beauty in person.

If you are planning a trip to the Amalfi Coast, here are some suggestions on what to do, where to eat and stay while you’re there.
