    Verflixter Kitetag

    August 12 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 28 °C

    In einem richtigen Abenteuerurlaub nimmt man auf jeden Fall die local NotAufnahme mit 🙈. So endete jedenfalls heute unser verflixter Tag. Der Wind war gut, fast zu gut! Wir gehen alle aufs Wasser mit den Kites - zurück kommt Marcel mit einem aufgeschlitztem Schirm und ich mit einem dicken blauen kleinen Finger 😂 ganz schön wild. Abends gibt es noch ne Pizza mit Sonnenuntergang und bei einem Rotwein wird beschlossen, dass ein Röntgen doch sinnvoll wäre. Aber Glück gehabt - nichts gebrochen!Read more

    Marsala - escola e museu fenício

    November 27, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    Hoje a manhã foi de trabalho. A reunião para decidir o rumo das mobilidades não foi muito produtiva, mas a partilha de experiências foi. Depois do almoço, onde conhecemos a diretora da escola, visitámos o museu onde se encontram os vestígios de uma grande embarcação fenícia. O jantar foi conjuntoRead more

    Zweiter Kitetag - Lo Stagnone

    August 9 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C

    Wir starten wieder um 13:30 Uhr in Lo Stagnone. Heute ist weniger Wind, nur so 13/14 Knoten. Wir nehmen also einen 15er Kite und gehen wieder aufs Wasser. Marcel nimmt noch eine Privatstunde (60€ pro Stunde) und fährt dann selbstständig (Ausleihgebühr für den ganzen Tag 50€). Wir üben weiter mit Gerry und können am Ende des Tages nach 4h auf dem Wasser souverän zu beiden Seiten fahren. Sogar Upwindfahren klappt schon gut! Also ein Riesenerfolg!Read more

    More from Marsala

    June 22, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    Last night I joined the Maltese motorcyclists who are staying at the same hotel. We had a really nice meal and a good laugh. This morning at breakfast there were five Italian motorcyclists, the two Maltese and me. I was invited to join the Italians who were going on a ride into the hills. It was nice to be asked but I declined as I want to relax here and explore a bit more of Marsala until it is time to go to Palermo. I found a couple more churches one of which had a huge crack being the altar going up and across the ceiling.Read more

    Väga ilus loss põhimõtteliselt.

    Jaanus ja Tea ööbivad tuhkatriinu tornis ning meie ööbime toas vaatega linnale ja basseinile (vaata panoraami).

    Käisime ujumas ja peale seda söömas. Sain mõõkkala proovida. Suht tavaline, natuke vintskem tükk liha, aga ikka hea.

    Peale õhtusööki käisime granaatõuna raksus, sest kuna ikka selline võimalus veel tekib. Granaatõuna on siin vapustavalt head ja magusad, mitte sugugi sarnased neile mida me poest ostame.

    June 21, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    As I was riding today I was thinking about the difference from when I rode the Vincent to Malta ten years ago.
    With the Vincent I could see my speed in miles per hour and if I look down near my right foot I could see a gear indicator. If it was horizontal I was in top gear.
    For fuel I had to remember to reset the trip then I'd fill up at 150 miles.
    Don't get me wrong, I love the Vincent and everything about it, but to show how things have moved on look at the photo to see what information is available at a glance:
    My current speed shown on the big display and true speed shown on the sat nav. The speed the cruise control is set at. The speed limit for the road I'm on. (This is shown in two places)
    The revs of the engine and which gear I'm in.
    The distance I can go with the fuel left in the tank
    The air temperature, the time
    How much battery is in my mobile phone and is signal quality.
    If I get a message it would ask if I want to see it.
    How far in time to my destination. When my next turn is, what my next turn is.
    If there was a problem ahead it would/might but not very often tell me and offer a detour.
    I can honestly say I do use all of the above and if I put my mobile phone in the cradle I would see even more.

    Peter. We have an app. called Waze you put on your phone. It does some neat stuff. Be aware...There is an object on the road ahead, Usually a chunk of tyre from an artic. vehicle. Police reported ahead. Means slow down. And a lot more.

    Marausa Lido

    April 6, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    Jeudi, 6 avril 2017
    Nous quittons ce coin de paradis pour explorer la côte ouest de la Sicile. Nous montons en lacets jusqu'à 750m et arrivons sur le parking des bus d'Erice. Ce bourg médiéval, resté parfaitement intact, est une attraction touristique. Ça doit être plein de monde en haute saison. Un parcours fléché nous montre tous les bijoux de cette ville, surtout les nombreuses églises. Un bon dîner au La Pentolaccia pour fêter nos 43 ans de mariage est bien mérité. La descente sur Trapani est aussi spectaculaire que la montée depuis Valderice. Le parquage dans cette ville portuaire se révèle difficile; pour finir nous nous posons sur le parking des ferry qui vont sur les îles Égades. La vielle ville se trouve sur une presqu'île. Les trésors sortis de la mer: corail, pêche et sel ont apporté de la richesse à cette ville. Des palazzi et églises baroques, richement décorés, témoignent de ce passé. Notre parking n'invite pas à y passer la nuit; nous poussons donc un peu plus loin et trouverons un agricampeggio à Marausa où nous sommes bien installés en compagnie d'une famille allemande, que nous avons déjà croisée ce matin. Quel courage, parcourir la Sicile à vélo avec deux petits d'environ 3 et 1 an!Read more

    Palermo to Marsala

    May 23, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    This morning was a slower start, after a great breakfast at our hotel, Paul headed off to collect our rental car for the next ew days. He was one for a while, but the problem was a great queue at the rental agency. There was some sort of political rally at the dock below where we dined this morning, thousands of people were crowded on the dock around a large ship...

    Paul arrived with the car, and off we went. First stop was to the Temple of Segresto - a Greek temple that was almost complete. For some reason we could not find out, we were diverted fr the entry gates, but w we ignored that and managed to park. However, the place we were instructed to park was perhaps 2km uphill walk to the site. No one was going in. Very strange. However, I did manage to get some shots...Italians! Who knows!?! The gloves life, but a lot about them

    Back on the road, we headed for Marsala - famous for Greek ruins and Marsala wine, my mum's fave for trifles! What a cute town this was! It was a walled city,with great gates with side. Inside, there were marbled pathways and wonderful alleyways. There was an amazing gnarly tree next to a huge fountain. We wandered here for while, and jumped back in the car. We found the Penny Market, and felt obligated to buy supplies for lunch - beautiful fresh baguettes, ham, cheese and amazing tomatoes. We had to drive about 30km trying to find somewhere to stop for lunch. Peevee eventually used that spidey-sense and took this side road that deteriorated to a rutted track, which we prayed no vehicle came up the other way, when it opened up to this amazing view,and the side I f a mount, overlooking a golf course and the Mediterranean. We knew it was the one when it had a lone bench, with a sign saying "viewing spot" in English... Sensational lunch with an equally amazing view...

    Backing the car we drove another75 km toAgrigento, and the Valley of the Temples. This is a huge area of multiple reek Temples in the Doric style. The Temples date from 5th & 6th century BC, and attributed to the peoples of Rhodes...

    It was interesting, but not well signposted, and they did not give you a map. But we wandered among the ruins for a couple of hours.

    Following this, we headed for our hotel, in the Village of Kaos. It was beautiful, with a massive pool. Regrettably,a little cool or swimming...
