{A Relaxing Day in Positano}

Vacations to the south of Italy should be all about relaxation. We put it at the top of our list.
Our favorite way to relax in Positano was to rent lounge beds on the beach (10 EUR/each for the day - worth every penny!) and just lay in the sun for hours.
It didn't hurt that our view was the gorgeous cliffside hotels and residences of Positano - stunning!
We laid there for hours, only getting up to break for lunch.
There are a few cute and yummy places right in Spiaggia Grande (the beach), but on this day we decided we wanted to lunch with a view (so spoiled we are!), so we hiked up the hill 15 minutes or so to Cafe Positano.
It provided stunning views for a leisurely lunch.
Then we headed back down to our sunbeds that were waiting patiently for us.
Ah, take me back!

  14. Oh my gosh! You had like the supreme location lounge bed! Absolutely worth whatever you paid. I rented a similar type lounge bed twice while I was on my honeymoon in Maui last month. Its the perfect way to get in some rest while still enjoying the location. I hate the thought of taking a nap during the day in a hotel room while on vacation. But sometimes you need a nap, and what better place than an oceanside lounge bed!

  37. Hi Liz! We're moving from Portland to Eindhoven in July! I love your pictures and seeing where you are going while in Europe. I have one questions though, what do you do with Henry while you're on all these trips? Have you been anywhere where you thought later, damn--we should have brought our dog? Reason I'm asking is that we are bringing our 3 year old golden retriever with us! Thanks. Loey
