Words. Place. Travel.

Travel changes us and takes us to new places. This is how I found my way to the Amalfi Coast ... and to writing. When I first set foot in Amalfi, I felt deep in my bones that this place would be important in my life. Fifteen years later, I can say that certainly has been true.

The Amalfi Coast has become my life. I've spent most of those years capturing what I love about this place in words on my website Ciao Amalfi, in my Amalfi Coast guidebooks, and as co-host on the Rediscover Italy Podcast. But that's just the beginning.

There are so many stories in this beautiful landscape - the people who live here, the history & culture, and the creative stories that come alive in my mind. If you're looking for different way of seeing the Amalfi Coast, I've got a story for you.
