Is there a right and wrong way to pronounce "Capri"? I always said it like "Capry" but then in Toronto when I was telling people I was coming here, everyone said it like "CaprEE"..which made me think I was the one pronouncing it wrong, so I started saying it their way. Until I found out today from hearing it from these Italians, calling it "Capry". lol. I should just trust myself next time.
Early morning, I checked out from my Milan hotel. Then took a 4.5hr train to Naples, cab to Molo Beverello (the ferry port), then 45min ferry ride over to Capri. It was a stressful journey. I won't go into detail about it because I was worried and stressed for nothing as everything went as smoothly as it could possibly go..but there were some challenges along the way. I did realize then that that was the reason why I love travelling alone. Because of the challenges; especially in a completely foreign place so far from home. It is a nerve wracking and exciting experience at the same time. I mean during the time while it's happening, it is extremely stressful but then afterwards it becomes a good travel memory and makes me happy it happened.
By the way, I've decided to post more photos in this post, and write out details along the way. It will be more interesting for you to see more visuals.
At the ferry dock, I was extremely confused about what to do or where to go but managed to get on the right ferry.
Then arriving at Capri, a representative from my hotel came to meet me and take my luggage away. They took it up separately so I was able to walk up and explore a bit on my own. I didn't know this before, but the whole place is strictly pedestrian only.
The photo above shows the view you are greeted with as soon as you get out the funicular.
