This past weekend, the entire Sant’Anna girl squad went to the magnificent island of Capri. We met “at the flags” at 8AM on a Sunday, and most of the group was a little upset about this. However, the trip was worth the early wake up time. We got onto the ferry at the Port, and a half hour into the trip, the island of Capri rose out of the fog and we all suddenly forgot how tired we were.
We booked a private tour of the island with our lovely guide, Julia. We were able to go around the entire island, and we even swam twice, once through the Green Grotto, and another time at the swimming area near a marina.
Once we got off the boat, we took a bus up to Anacapri, where we all got to eat and then the group split in two: some girls went with Julia around Anacapri, and the others took a chairlift to the top of Monte Solaro. I was in the group that took the chairlifts up, and it’s like a single person ski-lift. The view at the top was phenomenal.
Afterwards, we met up and went to the Piazzetta, where celebrities are often sighted. We didn’t see any, but the Kardashians were apparently on the island the same weekend as us (according to various Snapchats). Some girls went shopping, others got gelato, but we all met and took another bus ride to the marina, where we boarded the ferry back to Sorrento.
All in all, the trip was a successful first outing for the students. The water is the most beautiful water I’ve ever been in, and I’m from the land of 10,000 lakes.
