Today Mom and I went on a mother-daughter date to the beautiful seaside town of Sorrento. It was lovely!
Sorrento is such a beautiful town, and I’m a little ashamed I didn’t take more pictures. Sorry guys!! The train ride from Naples to Sorrento took longer than Mom and I thought it would–about 2 hours! But Mom was asked on a coffee date with a friendly older Italian gentleman, so the ride was well worth the time 😉 (She declined, in case you were wondering).
When we initially arrived in the city, we needed a bit of a pick-me-up before we really got rollin’. Can you guess what I ordered? Ayup, a cappuccino with an apricot ‘graffa’, which is like a donut
Then we were ready to rock! We wandered up and down streets, stopping at what looked interesting and catching a late lunch when we felt the rumblings of hunger once more. Mom and I originally planned on sharing some appetizers, but for some reason when I opened the menu and saw the egg dishes available, I couldn’t shake my craving for eggs.
My eggs were just a little bit runny, which is exactly how I like them, and I was surprised at how much I liked the cooked tomato with the eggs.
After lunch we had to sort of hustle back to the train station in order to make it home in time to prep dinner, but it was an absolutely lovely day and I thoroughly enjoyed the high 70’s weather! And I finally found the purse I’ve been longing for for months.
Originally I wanted just a nice brown leather purse, but the yellow was calling my name. First the purse then the eggs…I’m sensing a pattern…
I love Sorrento and can’t wait to take Blaine back!!
A question for you: Is there a place you would visit again and again without tiring of it?
I think Sorrento and Rome are both places I could go repeatedly without getting bored. There’s just so much to look at and do!
