The first half of June 2013 was a personal trip to the peninsula of Sorrento, Italy. I was there with three friends, and we rented an apartment in Sant’Agnello (immediately to the east of the city of Sorrento). We walked pretty much everywhere, shopped at the supermarket, cooked dinner for ourselves half the time, and in all the excitement we changed our itinerary several times — we basically lived there for two weeks. It was as magnificent as it sounds!
