Taking it easy in Sorrento!

The weather is definitely better here than when I left UK!

I’m in Sorrento at the moment, after travelling around Italy for a while and its such a cool place, I have decided to stay here for a while. My American friend was doing an Italian language course at a language school in Sorrento and she convinced me that as we both want to stay in this fair country, we might as well use our time to learn some of its language!

I think I will also get a job, so I don’t have to go home for a time. But as I would like to be able to order a cappuccino at a bar, buy a pair of jeans in the great shops here, get on the bus to Positano and talk to some Italian guys, I agreed with my friend that it was about time we throw our well thumbed phrase books in the bin and start some lessons!

The school organized our accommodation for us. We were a bit stuck at the beginning, before asking the school to find us accommodation. The school not only teaches Italian but also helps students with finding accommodation and sometimes even jobs. After some grotty experiences of finding my own place to stay in other parts of Italy, it was nice to know that if I have any problems with my accommodation, the school will sort it out!

Sorrento is getting busier and busier as we get nearer to Easter. This place has got THE BEST ice-cream on the planet. There are so many bars, clubs and gelaterias (ice cream parlours) to hang out in that I could be tempted to just stay here, but you know what is an added bonus about being here? Its SOOO near Capri, Ischia, Pompeii, Naples, Positano, and Herculaneum. Just right for a cultural, hedonistic, educational (and what is for sure, gastronomic) trip. And THAT is what we are going to do!!

Ciao and baci
