I just moved to Naples, Italy

Since the beginning of October 2017, I have been living in Naples, Italy, with my girlfriend. Many people say Rome is Italy’s heart and Napoli is its soul, so I will report back on that. While joining the Apple Developer Academy Master Class, continuing my PhD research and working on some projects remotely, we plan to travel around Campania and the Amalfi coast to make the most out of the trip.

So far I can attest to the many reports of Napoli being busy, loud and somewhat messy while being unique, picturesque and enjoyable at the same time. With sunny days and temperatures around 25° Celsius it is a quite nice place to be in October. As I expect the winter to be pretty mild, I am looking forward to an unique experience over the next few months.

Also, I am pretty sure that I have never eaten any tomatoes quite like those to be found around here. They are called “Pomodorino del Piennolo del Vesuvio” or just Pomodorino Vesuviano, are available at almost every shop one can go to and are just awesome.

Over the next few weeks, I will report back with some more impressions from the Amalfi coast and the area of Campania and might elaborate a little on why I joined the Apple Developer Academy.

    Those tomatoes are among the best you can get in the world. Almost impossible to get in Germany for a simple reason: the small spike. You have to pack them separately to assure they don’t get hurt and rot on the way. So: consider yourself lucky to live close to these magnificent but fragile pleasures. 😉

      Thanks for your kind feedback ☺️
      I am indeed very happy to live close to these and many other local pleasures, even if it is only for a limited time.
      Best wishes from Napoli.
