Rome 5 SORRENTO
We took a train to Naples first. From there we had to take a different train to Sorrento. The scenery outside was very beautiful. Most of the time I slept though. When we reached Sorrento it was past 2 pm. Everything in that place seemed so peaceful and calm and lazy. It was raining before we reached I guess. We called the hotel and they said they were on their way to pick us up. We read a lot of good reviews about this hotel-Johanna’s park. We read they go out of their way to make sure their guests are comfortable. We found out about their hospitality soon. It was a long ride to the hotel, it was almost on top of a hill. There were olive trees and trees full of lemon on both sides of the drive way.
The hotel was really nice. The owner was a very warm, friendly person. We checked in to our room. The scene from the hotel room was breathtaking. Far away we could see sea, and then a mountain. I believe it was the Mt Vesuvius. It was a beautiful cloudy day. I wish if there is another word for saying beautiful. But then reality checked in. we are all very hungry. How many times I used that word already?. Boss went to see what he can do. We asked the owner if we could get something to eat. She said she will see what she can do and asked us to wait in the restaurant. Her son is a cook there, it’s a family business. He came and made for us everything we wanted from the menu! When you are that hungry and when you get that tasty a meal, the feeling you have is SIGH.
