The little gift that goes a long way…

I’m touched by individual stories of foreigners who have come to the Amalfi coast and have left their hearts behind.   After all it happened to me.   When the individual in question is a little boy who’s barely ten and spent two weeks on the Coast a couple of summers ago, it’s even more poignant.

Annika, who’s blog many of you read, has launched an appeal to pay for her son’s trip to Siena Italy.

Annika is in a one salary situation and can’t afford paying a second fare for her son Alexander from Sweden to Italy, for her much dreamed of, weekend away.

Alexander really desires to go as he’s obviously among many things, ‘un buon gustaio’ and loves Italian food.  But he also appreciates the Italian culture and women, because as you’ll notice on the video that Annika filmed, he made a special friend with this little princess on his trip to Positano.

It’s one of the most beautiful home spun videos that I’ve seen about Positano because it has been made with the secret ingredient: ‘amore e passione’.

Please go read Annika’s story, and give just a little to help Alex join his Mum!

I wish him good luck. Hope he finds meaning to what his mom is doing for him no matter what the outcome is.

Scintilla, I can't find your email so I'll tell you here. Yesterday morning I kind of stalked your husband (whom I thought was, but wasn't sure). We were both at the post office and when he got out I stopped him, introduced myself (he knows my dad) and then asked if he was Scintilla's husband the one with the blog Bell'Avventura. He appeared a bit surprised but then said yes. We then had a chat and my mom and dad arrived so he said hello (they've know each other for many years) and I told him we must meet upon your next visit.
I'd love to.
