7.11.12 Crotone to Sicily Well today is going to be a long long story.

Sitting on our deck late on Sunday evening, finishing the bottle of red wine and looking out across the water, it's a fine way to end our 4 days in Taormina. Tomorrow morning we have a bus trip to Messina (an hour), and then a 2 hour hydrofoil journey to Lipari in the Aeolian Islands. This will be our base for 6 ...
