    Unterwegs rund um den Ätna

    August 8 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    Heute wollten wir eigentlich ein oder zwei Städte anschauen aber es waren anscheinend sämtliche Italiener unterwegs und es gab nahezu keine Möglichkeit einen Parkplatz zu ergattern.Da wir den erwarteten Zauber von Sizilien noch nicht gefunden haben wagten wir uns spontan tief ins Land hinein auf die Suche.Die Landschaft und all die Folgen dieses noch aktiven Vulkans sind unglaublich.Es war überwältigend und irgendwie faszinierend. Fortsetzung folgt.....😉Read more

    Saracen gorge

    March 25, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    The bridge spans the Simeto river, whose gorges are the product of a lava flow.
    The basalt structures have been polished and shined by the endless flow water through the ages.
    This is the real reason locals come here: for a dip in the river on a Summer day. The water is too cold now, but soon, heated by the black stones, it will be lovely.Read more

    Saracen bridge

    March 25, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    We took some time off from concreting to visit this bridge a few kilometres away.
    Apparently of Roman origins, though there is nothing to see, the Ponte Saraceno was rebuilt under Roger II. The four arches have different curves with attractive, two colour, stone banding.
    All roads lead to Etna.
    Here are my guides: Astrid, her aunty Frederica and her dad, Bob.

    Saracen biology

    March 25, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    The path North from the bridge to the gorges is blanketed with flowers. Apart from the almond tree, I haven't the foggiest notion what they are though!
