“I wandered everywhere,
through cities and countries wide.
And everywhere I went,
the world was on my side.”
One of my favorite things about traveling is time to wander.
Time to actually live out those delicious words: amble, mosey, and stroll.
The back streets of Capri are perfect for such happy perambulations, for they are quiet and shady, far from the clogged alleyways and sun-beaten avenues of the main shopping districts.
I love the painted tiles that adorn the house numbers, perky flowers spilling down white-washed walls, and worn steps that lead to the prettiest doorways.
The bottles of limoncello lined up so cheerily making me think of long summer days under the trees sipping icy glasses of this sweet nectar.
Of course I’m smitten by the doorways, especially ones that are curved and painted luscious colors. But I also sigh happily at the blue and white tiles adorning footpaths and window casings alike. They bright such coolness to an island so often roasted by sunlight.
