My wife and I are going to be in Sorrento the first week of July. Any chance you would be willing to share the names of some of your favorite restaurants during your visit??

Thanks so much for the great pictorial. We really can't wait for our trip now.

A few random pics of Ischia .....


















I almost expected a hobbit to walk out of here.....


Relaxing in the natural thermo spa high up in Ischia.....If you had hair ,,,,you had to wear onr of those unfortunate shower caps !!........Not many advantages to having very little hair....this is one of them though .......


Views from the spa.....




Bloke in 38 deg c spa pool wearing an unfortunate shower cap......




Then .......of all the blokes to bump in to .......Brad Trent !!!!.....Brad dint want me to take a pic of him in one of those unfortunate shower caps ....but I did get a few wrist shots of him putting his favourite watch through its paces











Another shower cap shot .......and me with factor 500 hair on my shoulders.....



Not sure I wanna risk hopping in this taxi .....


Castle on a rock !!!.......



Then back to Sorrento for a feast of Bistecca and Brunello.......


Then to Capri ........boat dropped us here.....




Then up to the main square......

Not so sure about the Gold gilted displays ....not exactly military inspired


Time for some meat and cheese.......


All the cool people eat at this place!!....He's gott 99 problems but a pizza aint one !!!



Then another meal in the evening ......

The missus was on the squid.....



I opted for the ravioli in limon sauce ......Lovely !!.....



Followed by a Chateaubriand that was carved by a bloke who looked suspiciously like Alan Carr......


Both a little merry on the Limoncello......First in ...last out , as usual



Next day ......Amalfi .......

Some randoms......








Amalfi town......Is that a cute Italian girl on the top middle balcony ??......




Er...........no........


So I was taking some pics.......

Halfway there......






Made it ......



Street shots......





On to Ravello.........



Typical Amalfi road.....






Sounds goooood .......



Main Square in Ravello.....
