    Back home

    June 4, 2013 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C

    Maybe you've noticed already - I wasn't pleased with sicily. I expexted an astonishing, beautiful and rich Island - and found only few places which kept the promises.
    Lead by films like "the godfather" I thought the Mafia would be like a smart company which takes care to the country and the people, but no.

    It only squeezes money out of sicily and leaves not even enough to keep everything nice and tidy...

    This is where we came around.

    Finally

    June 3, 2013 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Heading to the airport we had the choice to stay in a rather expensive and average Hotel or to go to a campsite without being prepared for it...

    So we spent the last night in a Fiat 500 and had a generous dinner before we left!

  • Day13

    Riposto

    June 1, 2013 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Riposto was the closest town to our appartment. Small, unpretentious, very enjoyable with an impressive view onto the Ätna!

    Maybe its useful to get used to waste. Its everywhere in sicily.

  • Day8

    Catania

    May 27, 2013 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    Catania is one of the bigger cities in sicily. A pretty town which was a good example for the italian lifestyle.
    Have you ever seen faster boats than that, from the Sicilian financial guards? Wonder why?

    Our appartment

    May 23, 2013 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    Finally, we arrived accidently in torre archirafi, where we stumpled upon our appartment which enlightend our whole vacation!

    Very recommendable!

    Isnello

    May 22, 2013 in Italy ⋅ ☁️ 23 °C

    Driving through the mountains was great fun! For me at least...
    My codriver wasn't so pleased, so she was finally glad, when we arrived in a small, pitoresk village in the middle of nowhere.
    Unfortunately there weren't any places where we could stay for the night, so we continued...

  • Day2

    Palermo

    May 21, 2013 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    We arrived in the evening in Palermo, and I found myself immediately rememembered of Bucarest - back in 1988! Everything & everybody looked shabby, buildings were missbuilt. Our rental car was brought into a locked garage. Odd situation, compared to other holidays....
