My grandmother brought me to visit her hometown, Agerola, on the
Amalfi Coast, during the summer of 1968 when I was a high school
student. I had the chance to meet her family on that trip and always
wanted to return.
I finally got the chance to do so in 2004, when I took my wife and
three college-age daughters on a trip to Italy, several days of which
were spent with my family in Agerola. My grandmother was no longer alive
but several of her sisters, a brother, and in-laws were, and we had a
wonderful time with them and their children, most of whom are close in age
to me. This turned out to be the highlight of our trip. Despite our limited
proficiency in Italian, and theirs in English, we had no trouble communicating
the deep affection we felt for each other. It was especially heartwarming
roaming around the town exploring the streets of my ancestral
village and visiting the house where my grandmother grew up and where I
stayed on my first visit. The house is still owned by my family and today
is operated as the Costa Blu B&B, a convenient location to stay if
visiting the spectacular Sentiero degli Dei:

I have returned to Italy several times since then and always make sure to
meet up with my family.
