Amalfi/Ravello: April 24 – 26, 2006

In April of 2006, following my father’s passing in March of 2005, I decided, for personal reasons, to return to where I was born in Vibo Marina, Calabria, at the age of 53, 48 years after having immigrated to Canada. This was my first time back. The trip was more of a personal, soul searching, journey. This video covers the final 2 days of my 10 day trip which began with my landing in Rome, on Easter Sunday, April 16 and concluded on April 26, on what would have been my parents 54th Wedding Anniversary. The video covers roughly a 36 hour period and begins with my arrival to Amalfi on the afternoon of April 24, my walking ascent and decent, to and from Ravello, and concludes at about 5:00 AM with my waiting for a bus to take me to the train station in Salerno, en route to my final train ride to Rome’s Fiumicino airport and eventual flight back to Canada.
