Norcia

We were saddened to hear of the earthquake that caused terrible damage in Norcia on 30 Oct 16.  We were fortunate enough to visit Norcia to attend a friend’s wedding almost 5 years ago to the day, a visit that can only be described as unforgettable.  Completely enclosed within high walls, the town stamped its mark of tradition, culture and warmth on us almost immediately, and we fervently hope that the town regains it’s former beauty and charm.

Cathedral of St Andrew – Amalfi Town

For a relatively small town with few inhabitants it was a surprise to come across such a spectacular cathedral.  The 9th century cathedral is located in the Piazza del Duomo, Amalfi, Italy and is dedicated to the Apostle St Andrew.  Little did I know that he was not only the patron Saint of Scotland.  The cathedral complex consists of the basilica of the crucifix, the cloister of paradise and the crypt which houses the relics of St Andrew

Trying to Impress

During a boat trip on the Amalfi coast, this individual obviously spotted my camera in hand and was clearly trying to impress, not sure if his female passenger would have been so.
