I’m officially back home in Toronto from an exciting trip to the Amalfi Coast with (get this!) my husband! Yep! Many of you already followed my journey along on Instagram as I shared some special moments from our big day and the honeymoon, but today I’m bringing you some photos that are really precious to me from our honeymoon on the Amalfi Coast, Italy. I have always loved travelling, so much so that I’m considering becoming a travel agent so that I can share my passion and knowledge with others, and inspire them to reap the rewards of exploring what the world has to offer too. But that’s a story for another post, this time I want to focus on the latest destination I’ve been to and the special significance it holds.
In a later post I’ll share with you some of the best restaurants to dine at in the Amalfi Coast, so stay tuned for that upcoming travel & food inspiration!
For today, I wanted to pop in and say hello, as it’s been a while since I shared something on Inspired by Nick, but I’m hoping you’ll be understanding as to why!? PS – the wedding day was incredible and we feel super blessed to have been able to share it with our loving friends and family. Is it me or has everyone got wedding fever at the moment? One of my best friends announced her engagement when we got back. I can’t wait to go look at Wedding Dresses in Frisco TX with her. I’ll just need to book a weekend off work first!
As for this next chapter in our life, not much has changed in our condo living downtown Toronto now it’s been finished and we’re no longer in short term North York apartments, other than all of the exciting future projects we’ll be working on together, as husbands! Of which I’ll be happy to share some inspiration on our home renovations, travel, DIY, lifestyle, and of course, my favourite: kitchen and food!
As for the Amalfi Coast, some of my favourite places that we visited were:
And of course, Capri!
I would say that Capri was the most commercial of the Amalfi Coast’s areas, but very special in its own way. Of course when in Italy, it’s hard to pass on the pasta, wine, espresso and the gelato! So while I try to live a healthy and balanced lifestyle for myself and for S, we definitely made time to indulge a bit in the simpler pleasures, all in moderation of course. 😉
One of my favourite things to do was, nothing! I know this sounds weird, but there’s a saying in Italian that goes “Dolce far niente” – which means the sweetness and simplicity of doing nothing. Simply taking the time to slow down, and appreciate. Quite a different lifestyle from our Toronto / Montreal / NYC / Vancouver / city lives of rush rush rush and work work work.
The Europeans definitely know how to appreciate the simpler joys of life. So, we adapted! Trust me, it didn’t take long for us to become assimilated to the culture LOL! The view, the lifestyle, the buildings and roads… everything is crafted in a way that forces you to slow down and just enjoy life.
I hope you love these photos as much as I do. A lot of them are quite special to me, and this is just a snippet of the 2000 others I have on my SD card lol, but stay tuned for a slew of awesome travel and food inspo to come!
