I’ve always been very inspired by travel and exploring different cultures and the imagery and mood of a country. In early May we visited Italy for the first time, the occasion was my Dads 60th birthday so we visited Sorrento, with the intention of fulfilling his (and one of my) lifelong dreams of visiting the archeological sites at Pompeii and Herculaneum. The art and crafts of the Roman era is fascinating, so much beauty, sophistication and advanced skill in fresco painting, sculpture, glassmaking and mosaic. My favourite site was Herculaneum where so much of the history is so well preserved and you can truly immerse yourself in your environment.
We also enjoyed the opulence of the catholic churches we visited, the quirkiness of the tourist traps and the natural beauty of Vesuvius and the Amalfi Coast. Below are a selection of photos that my husband took on our travels which I found particularly inspiring. I hope you enjoy them!
