Day 6: Naples/Isle of Capri
Right before we left on the trip, J lined us up with a boat tour of the Isle of Capri. It looked a bit sketchy on the website with titles like:
4 hours tour (OMG) and 3 hour tour (so cool I could die)
But we decided to risk it and book, and we are so glad we did! The entire front of the boat was a sunbathing area and the views and water were breathtaking. This was everyone’s favorite day of the entire trip. We even got to swim in the Mediterranean, surrounded by yachts (and a jelly fish). Of course diving contests and synchronized swimming were a must, and I’m sure the yachtys were highly impressed with our level of sophistication (the jellyfish-not so much).
My pictures can’t show you how blue the water was but this picture I stole off the internet will help.
Interesting fact: On the boat taxi ride to the Isle several tourists took pictures of j. Just stuck their camera right in her face and took a picture. We are curious to know what celebrity they thought they had spotted. They didn’t speak English so we weren’t able to ask.
Highlight: I may have mentioned Mr. M’s obsession with pizza (he dreams in pepperoni). Naples is the birthplace of pizza and boy do they know what they are doing.
Look how happy he is!
Lowlight: J bought us all a round of Lemoncello and forced us to drink it. In case you are wondering, it tastes just like lemonheads mixed with rubbing alcohol.
Next week: Fun on the cruise ship and Mykonos
