Guys, I seriously can’t stop dreaming about Italy. Specifically, Italian locations near the water. I.e. Positano, Lake Como, Cinque Terre, Portofino, Capri, the list goes on.
Over the past few weeks, in my spare time, I have scoured The Overseas Escape, Victoria Strader, Tales of Me and the Husband, Hither and Thither, and Gal Meets Glam for every possible Italy travel post, and am currently making my way through Love Taza.
I picked up Only in Naples from the library, which only fueled my obsession.
I’ve always been drawn to lusting after islands and beach towns, such as St. John and the Virgin Islands, the rest of the Caribbean, Maldives and Seychelles, etc., but there’s something particular about Italian locations that are just SO DREAMY.
Is it because they always seem sunny and warm?
Or because there is endless gelato?
Are they dreamy because Italians enjoy life so much and come off as being so carefree?
Or because the quaint cities are built right into the town – so rustic and yet so upscale?
Am I drawn to them for the bright blue ocean?
Or the colorful buildings in the town?
I’ll never know what exactly it is that makes Italian waterfront towns so appealing, but I do know – they’ve moved up to number one on my vacation wish list.
P.S. Anyone have any other blog recs that I can drool over??? (Note: I prefer to read travel posts that are in the form of a story, rather than “Top 5 Things to See in Cinque Terre!!” style.)
