There aren’t enough fingers on my hands to count all of the beautiful places I saw when I did my 5-week solo backpacking trip through Italy in 2007.

But I have to reserve one for Capri, that mythical island just off the mainland from Sorrento and Naples. I spent the better part of my time there covering as much coastline on foot as I could. Deep blue sea and lush green trees, separated only by craggy cliffs – picture perfect, dontcha think?
