Love this area of Italy.......Went six years ago and I promised the missus we'd go back when the opportunity next arose....sooooooo.........My eldest son was booked on a school trip for a week with his school , so the Mother -In Law offered to babt sit our 7 year old daughter if we fancied a week away !!.....My missus , after considering this for 1.5 seconds ......got straight on the keyboard and booked a week in Sorrento happy.gif



Probably best to play this while scrolling down happy.gif

It made so much sense
But now the haze has ascended
