My Dream of the Amalfi Coast

Apr 5, 2008
I was sitting here looking out the window at the beautiful sunset and into my mind I had a vision of the Amalfi Coast in Italy. I could hear the melodic Italian language and see the houses with their bright colors trailing all the way up the mountainside. Tour busses can hardly make the tight turns along the road overlooking the coast. Talk about a picturesque sight. This is it. As you drive long the coast and gaze down at the azure blue colored ocean and up at the brightly colored homes on the hills surrounding the coast. This is one of the most picturesque trips I have ever taken.

If you decide to take this trip you may want to learn a little of the Italian language. This will help you get around better and endear you to the local population. There are many good courses on the market. You might consider learning some of the Italian language before your trip. If you also want to learn to write the Italian language then I would perhaps get a Linguaphone course. Or if you want to sit at your computer and learn then I would get a Rosetta Stone CD-rom course. It will make your trip a lot more fulfilling to be able to speak the Italian language, even if it is just a little.

Start getting excited about your trip today. Go to your local Travel Agent and book your trip. Think of the warm sandy beaches, the blue, blue ocean as you look out over the Gulf of Amalfi, the range of the Monti Lattari (Lattari mountains) with the colored houses that harmonize with the beauty of the landscape and listening to the Italian language all around you. Think of the Italian food at the quaint restaurant looking over the beautiful coast. You will see the beauty of rich history, culture and folklore with statues around every turn.

I found that there are a variety of places to stay. Take your pick of a luxury hotel, a unique restaurant, bed and breakfast, or a villa. Go by yourself, take a friend, or take all of your family. This is an experience of a lifetime.

We all need a dream. Like the song "Happy Talk" says in the musical South Pacific, "Talk about things you'd like to do. You got to have a dream, If you don't have a dream, How you gonna have a dream come true?" Motivate yourself with a dream. I had a dream as I looked out my window thinking of a beautiful place I had traveled to in the past and wanting to go back. That dream took me places in my mind and made me want to purchase a ticket to Italy and stay on the Amalfi Coast again.

What is your dream? Where will it take you? An Unknown Author said, "Give a person an idea, and you enrich their life. Teach a person how to learn, and they can enrich their own lives." We all need to have an "idea" or should I say a "dream." And then we need to learn from that idea and enrich our lives. Quoting "Happy Talk" again..."If you don't have a dream, How you gonna have a dream come true?"
