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.

I have to admit. Reading The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People took me a lot longer than I expected. Somewhere between the beginning and the end I took a pause to venture into another book, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t think The 7 Habits was a book worth finishing.

While reading The 7 Habits, it reminded me a lot of a book I previously read, How to Win Friends and Influence People. Although it’s not exactly the same, the basic idea of sharing principles and concepts to become a better person for yourself and those around you are the same. The 7 Habits, as you might have already guessed, revolves around 7 different habits. All unique and different from one another, but somehow they are all linked and related, one habit following another until it forms a sort of never-ending cycle.

The 7 Habits is written by Stephen R. Covey and has been impacting people for over 2 decades. The topics covered in the book are those that can be applied to anyone’s life, regardless of your field of work, social status, race or gender. It’s quite a lengthy book and covers a ton of information but I’ll do my best at reviewing and summarizing the contents of the book below.

Top 5 Instagram Accounts to Follow for Self-Care

I think the older and older we get, the more we realize how vital self-care is to our overall well-being. This includes saying “no” more often, soaking in a luxurious bubble bath after a long day of work or simply taking a day off social media to be more present in the moment around loved ones.

Whatever the case may be, or how busy our schedules are, there really is no excuse not to make time for ourselves in the midst of a world that is pulling and tugging us in all directions. And although social media may not be the best answer to relax and disconnect, I wanted to share these Instagram accounts that promote self-care to the fullest. Now, pour yourself a glass of wine and get to following…
