    January 16 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 5 °C

    Hard to give the hills justice hence loads of the same view. I've never seen a view like this before in my life. So many layers of hills and mountains!
    Also, Ringo is an inside dog again... Hopefully he won't take long to heal, as he is not happy at all to be back in his collar and cooped up inside 😕Read more

    Same sun different set

    January 25 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Last night the military police came and knocked on our door! First time in Sicily, second time ever. They were very nice and didn't threaten us with a fine or anything, but just went over the fact we are in red zone and to move from place to place is forbidden... Most surprisingly they said we were absolutely fine to camp here (definitely not a designated place to camp) as long as we didn't leave any litter. Then they just checked our van for illegal immigrants or illegal covid social visitors (who knows which) checked our passports and gave us a very friendly goodbye! 😅 They were the best friends we've made in about 2 weeks, I wish they could have come in for a cuppa!Read more

    Santuario di Gibilmanna

    January 23 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 7 °C

    Arrived in the dark after getting stuck half way up a very steep, very narrow, very sharply winding, mountain road (we missed the no entry to camper or bus sign at the bottom🙈). Managed to turn around with some forceful encouragement from an oncoming Italian lady in a car who inched down every inch we did practically nose to nose 🙈😂
    The church looks beautiful, and the bells sound lovely, but the real view from here is a surprise for the morning now 😁
    Lots of cats around too so Ringo is happy 😂

    Sicily Soup

    January 31 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 12 °C

    We haven't done much, we are waiting for our spare tyre to arrive (hopefully by Tuesday) before making move across to Greece and Bulgaria. So we've been in the same wild camping spot for well over a week now like real gypsies, the same military police man came again yesterday, to check we hadn't got guests around (Covid related) but aside from that just lots of working, sea glass collecting and I made this Sicilian Chicken Soup recipe (Brace made the croutons to go with it)
    😂 The exciting life of travelling the world..!

    ... und auscho sind füf Wuche verbi

    October 4, 2020 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Nachem Zmorge bsueched mier s Meer uf de andere Strassesiite. S isch scho rächt voll wo mier achömed. Mit Bade, sünnele und "no, Grazie" säge zu dene viele Strandverkäufer vergad d Ziit wie im Flug. Gäge Mittag gönd mier wiiter zu de Grotte Mangiapane, wo en Usstellig vo de früenere Läbenswiis, vo dere Umgäbig isch. Es stönd es baar Hüsli, wo direkt a en Höhli ane baut sind. Einisch meh gsend mier die Schwarze sizilianische Biendli umen Baum schwirre.
    Üse negst halt isch s Dörfli Erice wo uf 750m.ü.m liegt. Will de Wäg sehr schmal und kurvig sig nämed mier lieber d Gondelbahn ufe. Vo det obe gniessed mier en wunderschöni Ussicht ufs Meer, d Stadt Trapani und d Saline de Marsala (wo mier gester ja gsi sind). Bi sunneuntergang fahred mier mitem Gondeli wieder abe zu üsem Camper.
    Für die Nacht fahred mier anen wunderschöne Platz direkt am Meer. Es chlises Für, es bar Schoggibanane, en feine Wy vo de Region und de Abig isch Perfekt.
    Also en Perfekte Tag für üsi Halbziit wo mier hüt au scho hend vo dere Reis.

    The horrid half of Trapani

    December 16, 2020 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    We felt intimidated here for the first time in the 6 months we have been travelling in the van... Really not the nicest place and some dodgy characters around. Didn't feel unsafe exactly... But definitely walked quickly at times and kept to busier areas 😂Read more

    Christmas Eve Eve

    December 23, 2020 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C

    Did our Christmas shopping today and our first little explore around the centre of San Vito Lo Capo, which is lovely. Definitely feel like we are in the right place for Christmas... The only thing that doesn't feel Christmassy is how warm it is!Read more

  • Day93


    January 7 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Italy (nationwide) is now in yellow zone for week days, and orange for weekends, meaning we are free (ish) again and plan to simply avoid major places during weekends. Supposedly new zone classifications will be announced on the 16th Jan which will go back to the before Christmas way of zoning each area according to severity. So we will know more then. Numbers have risen over Christmas in Sicily, a huge party of 150+ people was broken up and about half of them have since tested positive 🙄😡 so rumours are we will be going into red... But there were rumours of that last time and we ended up yellow
    So for now, back on the road 🥰
