From Naples to Sigonella, Sicily

A travel blog entry by joshualyon on Dec 05, 2014

I was trying to catch a flight to Shannon from Sigonella NAS, so I fight an overnight ferry from the port of Naples, to the port of Catania. From there I took a cab to the NAS. The flight to Shannon was canceled, so I am doing the waiting game thing again. I need some rest, so I am staying in an actual hotel room for the night. Hopefully there is a flight tomorrow to get ...

... of tussock type grass. The ash or pumice comes in different colours and made for a weirdly fantastic sight. After a 4 course lunch with local wine we headed up to Crateri Silvestri which erupted last in 1896. The towns below were mist shrouded and the temperature was close to zero. The wind chill was possibly less! It was blowing a gale and just SO cold! I find it hard to describe how bizarre but beautiful this landscape was. It has truly ...

Nicolosi to Taormina fine and Warmish

... you need it. Wandered around Nicolosi that night- nice town with lots boutiques and nice looking cafés and bars. Even an Irish pub. Dinner at Alpero Restaurant just cause it looked interesting. Great food and helpful owner who suggested Antipesti. Caponata al cocao and Fritelle mele e speck. The first was like a stir fried veg dish with small cubes of aubergine, mushroom, capsicum, celery and heaps olive oil. Said no to the cocao- can't imagine what that would be like. Second ...

Licata to Nicolosi Warm sunny 21 deg

... atmosphere. Not too much brand name stuff, and not particularly cheap, but Kim managed to load up on handbags. Couldn't find anything interesting for the kids- adult or junior. Set off again around 1530 for easy drive to Nicolosi which is on edge of mt Etna. Road in was bedlam but town seemed nice enough. Typical small Sicilian town. Hotel not too hard to find with the help of Google. Older property with bright blue walls and red ...
