The 2019 Expeditions have started!

What better way to kick off the 2019 overseas season than to return to our second home here on the Amalfi Coast?

Positano is secreted in the bowl of cloud, with the peninsula stretching away toward Capri.

The Chestnut wood is being harvested, giving us the chance to see the hard working mules making it all possible.

Mules are still an integral part of the harvest process for the Chestnut woods, reaching areas that motorised vehicles can’t.

 

The wild flowers and herbs are simply stunning and grow wherever you look.

Wild Garlic is flowering alongside many of the walks, with a subtle but alluring smell!

A beautiful (and poisonous!) Fire Salamanader. They are usually nocturnal, but will come out on a rainy day.

We’ve experienced some wet weather, but even that has a silver lining with the appearance of several Fire Salamanders that are usually so secretive. There are lots of smaller creatures too, if you can spot them.

This is a “Scarabaeus Sacer” or Sacred Scarab beetle. It’s a dung roller that can shift many times it’s own body weight.

And of course, what better way to finish the day than to eat a freshly cooked, wood fired, handmade pizza and some fantastic organic wine?
