‘When life hands you lemons, make limoncello’, which is what I did with a friend during the summer of 2015. Staying at an organic lemon farm in Italy for a week was something unique and unforgettable. The best way to describe the farm is as an oasis of tranquility. Just surrounded by lemon trees, stunning views, great company,… the perfect place to unwind and relax. This holiday was the perfect combination of activity and rest.
At the farm we had a home cooked dinner every night with local products, which was absolutely delicious. But who doesn’t like Italian food. We learned how to make the liqueur Limoncello and the basics of making mozzarella, all with organic ingredients from the farm itself.
Since we had only one week at the farm, we visited the most famous places near the farm. The farm itself was located in Sorrento; ‘Agriturismo Il Giardino di Vigliano’. We hiked the ‘Walk Of The Gods’, high above the coastal town of Positano & Praiano. A great but quite exhausting walk because of the heat and I sometimes suffer from the ‘altitude sickness’, but I never let that stop me from traveling and visiting great places. This trail ended in Positano.
We also visited the island of Capri by boat. It is something I heard a lot of, and I get the ‘magic’ of Capri. It is a beautiful, picturesque island.
This holiday was organized by GAdventures. A travel organization which offers great guided holidays for a reasonable price. The great thing about GAdventures is that you travel in quite small groups which means that you are never alone. You always get to know new people and it is an excellent way of getting to know new countries. I already traveled two times with GAdventures, and I’ve been blessed with the best tour guides so far. It is a great way of traveling and I do recommend it!
