So it’s the 2nd day of 2012 already! and my Dad’s Birthday! Happy Birthday DAD! not that he reads this! 🙂

Christchurch has been kept awake all night with earthquakes, the biggest being 5.5 at 5.45am, they are predicting a 7.0 to hit soon, which would be awful considering 181 people died when a 6.3 hit!  So fingers crossed they have got this wrong and nothing happens!

In the mean time here is the lovely view from our Hotel in Sorrento, looking out over Sorrento and Mount Vesuvius, which we climbed on our last day:

Had a bit of a scare last night when I realised Christmas is this week! I know I’ve been living in my own little bubble, but this week!  I need to go xmas shopping!

Now you have all seen Positano by night in one of my earlier post, so today is Positano by day, what a gorgeous little village, would definitely recommend it to people, though watch out for the inflated tourist prices and the cover charges, but if you did what we did and buy a drink from a diary/corner store and just sit on the rocks, you can enjoy a lovely view as the sun goes down for next to nothing 🙂

Back from Sorrento, Italy with hundreds of more photos to edit!

Below is a lovely village called Positano, we spent the holiday getting charged cover charges and outrageous prices for food and drinks, we had just been to Capri where we had brought one beer and one coke while sitting  on the main strip, the bill came to 12 Euros without tip so by the time we got to Positano with half the holiday over we decided to just buy beers from the supermarket /local store and just go sit on the rocks while watching the sun go down, it was a beautiful view and we had it all to ourselves.

With such a beautiful view, it was a great location/time, to discuss our future, (me and my partners that is!) there was no ring or no get down on one knee, just a conversation to decide we will get married next year September and a ring was to follow, it was all followed up a lovely fireworks display while we ate our dinner on the seafront, we got a little bit carried away and had to catch the last bus at 9.50pm back to Sorrento, which meant we were going to miss the last shuttle bus from Sorrento up the hill to our hotel, but after such a lovely night I didn’t mind, and then something amazing happen after 30 minutes in the bus with 30 mins still to go we drove past our hotel, we quickly pressed the button and the driver stopped pratically outside our hotel, we ended up back hours before we had planned and without a 30 euro taxi ride added on, so I went to bed very happy that night after such a lovely day 🙂
