I’m a very intuitive soul and always knew, without a doubt, that one day I would be spending my life in Italy. There was no logic to this, my father was Irish, my mother’s father was of Greek blood and I was born, of all places, in Birmingham, lived some time in Ireland and then mostly in London – so where did the feeling for Italy come from? Well, to not sound totally crazy, think I’ll keep that theory to myself for a little longer.
So what’s this blog all about? It’s about sharing; my feelings and attachment to the place I eventually did call my home, are so strong that I have to share them and hope to make anyone who reads this, feel they would like to share as well.
The place in question is Amalfi – originally named after the beautiful young nymph who was loved by Ulysses. When she died he felt the need to bury her body in the most beautiful place he could find on Earth and after much searching, he found the enchanted jewel that is Amalfi.
‘AMALFI MIO’ tells the story of how I found the same place, knew within hours that it was to be ‘my’ place and how Destiny brought me back to live there.
