How To: A Three-Day Amalfi Coast Road Trip.

Driving the Amalfi Coast has been a dream of ours for a long time. To say we were excited is an understatement. The Amalfi Coast is very compact and you can drive the entire thing in one day, although I highly recommend spending three days so you can relax and fully enjoy it. Here’s our experience…

Naples, or Napoli,  is where we began our Italian expedition. Just one night, and that was plenty.

In the future, I suggest catching lunch here on your way to the island of Capri to start your Amalfi Coast road trip. The only thing you need to do in Naples is eat pizza. Then leave.

 An eight hour overnight train from Prague to Budapest was painless – Our own private room was definitely a treat. It was still hard to sleep with the loud noises and jolting movements, but it’s a nice way to save money on a hotel room!

In typical Michael and Deena fashion, we booked our flights from Norway to Prague only two days in advance. That meant we had high prices and three layovers for what would be a direct two-hour flight. Instead, SAS took us from Stavanger to Oslo to Stockholm to Prague. Ugh. #travelfail.

But we made it!

Everyone I talked to about Prague said how wonderfully romantic it is.

Throughout our quick two days, we explored the Old City and many plazas filled with tourists, music, and outdoor cafes…

As some of you know, Michael studied abroad in Copenhagen during college and has been talking about it ever since. This is a place I’ve been looking forward to visiting together for a very long time and I’m happy to report, it did not disappoint.

Let’s be honest, Amsterdam has a bad reputation. Sex and drugs. Legal.

Naturally, a lot of travelers have a biased view of this city, including me. However, upon visiting, since every intrigued traveler at some point has the itch to see what the “buzz” is all about, I was pleasantly surprised to find the beauty in this urban gem.

Sahara Desert.

As most people visiting Morocco can relate, I’ve dreamt about riding camels and sleeping under the stars in the Sahara Desert for a very long time. I researched a great deal beforehand, but here is a look into our five-day Sahara Desert Tour followed by my advice that I wish someone would have told me.

Marrakech is debatably the most popular tourist city in the Northwestern African country. To me, Marrakech felt exactly how you would imagine Morocco to be: Street vendors tucked into every alley, selling exotic merchandise, beautiful leather bags and jewelry, outdoor food vendors and street performers. But the first thing you’ll notice are the motorbikes. All I can say is, “LOOK OUT!”

Where to even begin? I’ve tried to think of something positive to say about Fes, but sadly I’m at a loss. This is quite possibly one of the first cities I’ve been to on this trip that I wanted to leave immediately.
