This week’s Facebook Friday was inspired by yesterday’s post.

This was from the summer I spent in Italy. I have tons of pictures from the few times I was there that I’d love to share with you guys. We were on the island of Capri, on our way up to the top of Ana Capri. Yes, you really ride up the top of the mountain on a single person seat. Yes, it was frightening at first. Luckily, I got used to it pretty quickly. In fact, I ate my panino on that ride up and received an interesting comment and some stares.

British woman: “Confident in taking your lunch?”

Me: *laugh, smile, nod and take another bite happily.*

..a few minutes later..

American man: *Singing something to himself* “Oh boy, usually it takes a whole bottle of bourbon to get me singing, this time it was only three beers! “

It was definitely interesting and I was a bit sad when their were no noteworthy comments on the way down. ;) But it was gorgeous and quite an experience being up there.

Also, I just wanted to take a moment and express how heavy my heart is in light of the earthquake and tsunami that has hit Japan and affected many other countries as well. I can’t even begin to imagine the chaos and tragedy going on there right now. My thoughts and prayers go out to those, all over the world, affected by this. These are such powerful images.

  • I was so saddened to hear about Japan – I just can’t stop thinking of the people & what they’re going through. Continued prayers are being sent their way!

  • When I went to Ana Capri in May of 2008 they had these big multi-person lifts. No single person chairs–thank goodness! I would have been so scared! But I love Capri, one of the most beautiful places in Italy I think. Warms my heart thinking about it. :)

  • Multi-person lifts? We went end of May/beginning of June and that’s all they had. Maybe that was on another side? I’m not sure! :) It was gorgeous, I miss it so much!
