A Tale of Two Cities: Capri & Naples

Traveling while abroad was always an adventure with our group. Needless to say we got lost once, or twice, or you know every time we stepped out of the door to try and go somewhere. Getting to Naples was the easy part, and you'd think getting to Capri would be super easy as well. (Disclaimer: this is a personal story about the adventure that we went on, I didn't spend too much time in Naples.)

I'm going to be 100% honest with you, I hated Naples. I didn't feel safe, partly because we didn't know where we were, partly because the people were not nice, and partly because we didn't feel safe. At all. Before we left, I had talked to one of my friends who had lived in Naples for a few years and he straight up told me not to go to Naples because I wouldn't feel safe. 

Now, we got lost trying to find the port. We couldn't find the correct bus to get on in the first place, so we asked the 'help station' which told us one thing, while a customer on the street told us another (they had just gotten back from Capri). We hopped on a random bus which was FULL to the brim of people. 

Somehow we passed up the port (how, god only knows) and got off at the next stop...on a one way street. We had to find the street that was going the other way. Since we looked insanely lost and confused, a kind old man helped us find the correct bus to get on. Afterward we FINALLY got to the port, where we found the first boat to Capri. 

Forty five minutes later, we pulled up to Capri. We couldn't wait to get on that island. We actually were staying in a place called Hotel Bossula (AMAZING) in Anacapri, which was absolutely amazing. Capri is absolutely beautiful, but it's also insanely expensive. So, Anacapri was a perfect second option. 

We were on the island, but it was a lot cheaper for all five of us to stay in a room. Although they didn't really have any shopping or too many restaurants to choose from, it was still the perfect place. Our hotel was possibly the best place that we could have ever stayed. The owners were so welcoming and so helpful. It was so beautiful. 

We ended up going to a small cove on one day and just hanging out. We swam in the sea and watched the sunset from the top. There was also a lighthouse there, but we never made the climb up. The second day we ended up going into the city of Capri and doing some shopping. From here, I'll just have to let the pictures do the talking.

What was the most beautiful place you've ever been? 


  1. Oh wow, gorgeous. I hope to one day go there! :)

    1. If you ever have a chance, I say take it in a heart beat! It was possibly the best decision I've made in quite some time.


Thanks for saying hello! I love hearing from all of you & reply back to everyone as quickly as I can! xoxo
