    As far South as we'll get!

    March 1, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    This footprint marks a turning point (literally) in our travels. Our 'Master Plan' is to head south in the winter and north in the summer. Isola delle Correnti, with its lighthouse, marks the most southerly point in Sicily and as far south as we'll come this year. We manged to find a beach car park and walk along the sand until we reached the island causeway. Unfortunately the causeway had been washed away so we balanced ourselves on the weed covered concrete foundation that projected out towards it.

    Although we've taken our time, we do feel that we've come a long way. When walking out in sandals we keep having to pinch ourselves to remember that it is only March here, not the middle of summer. There are a mass of unfamiliar wildflowers scenting the air and carpeting the ground in an intensity we've never seen and although we've grown used to the large cacti, succulents and palms, they are ever present reminders of the fact we are in foreign lands.

    When we finish on Sicily we will travel up the west side of Italy and spend a month in Slovenia before zipping up to Sweden and Norway for the summer. Now the weather is getting warmer we've got several friends and family coming out to meet us; something we are very much looking forward to!

    Something fishy

    January 20 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Marzamemi started and continues as a tuna fishing village. No Greek roots here! It was settled first by by the Arabs and originally called Marsa' al Hamen (which translates as "harbour of the turtle doves"). Why I have no idea.

    + Looking into the central plaza
    + The cathedral on one side of the plaza
    + Fishermans' houses on another side of the plaza, looking more Moroccan or Arab than Italian
    + The old dock area
    + Flower arranging (by Mr Gumby?)
    + Every lane leads to the sea
