ETNALAND!!!

A travel blog entry by suzannevalle

... while the girls ran around like madmen, going down slid after slide, ride after ride -Paolo went with on the slides and I on the more scary rides, but the professionalism of all the lifeguards and staff allowed us to relax a little and let the girls explore on their own - it was hard to let go, though!

When we arrived, all the young kids were running around in jellies or socks and we rolled our eyes at their Italian softness, but they'd ...

So, we had planned to go to Etnaland today, home of water slides and rides, which the girls had been counting down the sleeps for, bit some bad behaviour put paid to that, I'm afraid!

Instead, we opted for a more low key day and headed to the beach at Fiumefreddo, about 8km down the road. The beach itself was quite rocky, and the water really cold, but we had a nice time ...

Castles and pistachios.....

... paste, which is white Nutella, mixed with ground pistachios..... Say no more......

On the way home, we stopped and bought the most magnificent strawberries, so, if a place is famous for something, for goodness sake, don't expect to buy it there..... Go somewhere else!

A side note: Sicilians are fascinated with french fries, they order them as a side with their pizza, on their pizza and inside pastry with a sausage.....patatine everywhere

... the ampi theatre and some gorgeous buildings. We sat and had a coffee and then started walking again and around another corner was the biggest markets we have ever seen. It just kept going and going and going. From new and used clothes, jewellery, shoes, leather goods, bathers, electronics, toys, hats and fruit and vegetables. It was amazing. As we kept walking we came across old churches and beautiful buildings and just enjoyed it so much. ...

... I was talking to a good friend of mine here who told me that she and a buddy were renting a car and driving through Sicily. She asked me if I wanted to come along. Even though I only had a couple days to spare, OF COURSE I SAID YES!! I flew to Catania where they picked me up and then we stayed in Taormina on an amazing beach named Nexos Beach. It was one of the first places that they Ancient Greeks occupied when they landed in Sicily. And I can see why! It is ...

    Everything about this hotel is amazing. The bed is a little hard but besides that the service has been wonderful, the staff is great, and we are sad to leave tomorrow. It is in a great location and the complimentary breakfast is delicious in the beautiful restaurant! The rooftop has chairs to relax with great views and on the 2nd floor there is a little terrace that i used for exercising.The staff had seen me exercise each morning which made for a nice conversation. Everyone was so lovely, friendly, and helpful!!!
    I recommend this to anyone who likes a 5 start quality hotel! Thank you!
