After Saturday was so amazing, I feared the rest of the trip wouldn't measure up. However, Kate and I loved so much about our trip, we are already dreaming of returning next summer. Who wants to come?

Finally, Wednesday we had to make our way back to Napoli to catch our evening flight. Kate had wanted to try authentic Napolitano pizza along the way. A little research led us to Pizzeria da Michele, the pizza joint featured in Eat, Pray, Love. It's a busy joint, with tourists and locals alike, and at €4 a pizza, it's hard to go wrong! The pizza was different from others in Italy I've had for sure. The crust was thicker and chewier, and coming from the thick US crusts, this made me happy!

We had a name of a cabbie in Napoli that was supposedly super nice. So, after lunch, we gave this guy a call and in our broken Ital-ish told him how we got his number. He drove us towards the airport, insisting that we hop out of the cab with him at a local pastry shop to have traditional Napolitano pastries, sfogliatelle, before we left. He even paid for them. No worries, though, I'm certain he got his money back and then some with our tip.
It was an amazing trip. And, I'm ready to go again! Who's coming next summer?
Headed to the US on Sunday! Hoping to see so many of you!
