    Isole Egadi (West of Sicily)

    May 22, 2018 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    As I am now thoroughly fed up of long trips and forecast looks fairly settled with only very light winds I persuaded John that we should go to these islands and anchor up at various bays for a few days. Our first stop is Favignana which seems nicer than the mainland probably because it is more touristy so cleaner. The Sicilians not seem to see all the rubbish on their streets and hard shoulders. These Islands used to have thriving tuna industries so there are some old canning factories but they were also defensive positions with forts on the hilltops. While walking through the town we kept seeing pits like the one photographed which we have concluded is where each family quarried for the stone to build there properties, the stone is soft. We also saw this old wooden boat and thought of Dave and Jane our friends from Almerimar though this is probably a project too far even for them. Now if the sun could come out tomorrow things would be great is has been drizzling all afternoon which puts a dampener on things and means the photos really don’t do the place justice.Read more

    Fivignana and Levanzo

    July 5, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C

    Beautiful island that can be reached by many boat excursions. I recommend not to take the public ferry but a boat tour around the islands..
    All beaches have rocks, therefore a boat in the bay is really convient.Read more
