Napoli and Capri, Italy

I don’t even know where to start describing Napoli. I was surprised. Amazed. I have never seen anything like this in my life… not in a positive way. In short Napoli is the best example of the southern chaotic Italian city. Dirt, thieves, whistles on the street, no space, no rules, no order, no work, no air. I cannot say I disliked it, in fact, I was so curious and excited to see something like this I could not take a break to take enough photos. Take a look:

Even though it was something new, I was far more excited to visit Capri – a luxurious island, 45 minutes away from Naples by ferry. A change of 180 degrees compared to Naples. Not quite inspired, though, I thought I should put on my newly bought platforms. After no more than 30 minutes I found out that God made me tall for a reason. I absolutely cannot walk on such high heels for an entire day. As painful as those walks in Capri were, as breath-taking the views revealed from the top of my platforms. A one-hour cruise around the island has been probably one of the most wonderful memories I’ll ever have. I fell in love with the purest blue I have ever seen. The water was so clear I could see the corals and the sand at the bottom of the sea. Scuba diving must have been a wonderful experience in those lagoons. There is no picture in the world that can describe the shades of blue I’ve seen.  The high cliffs showed me incredible wonders of nature, while the expensive yachts and cribs made me dream with my eyes open. No wonder celebrities such as Bill Gates or the owner of Swarovski chose to build summer houses or buy yachts on this remarkable island.
