      ... the centre. We saw the opposite side of Mt Etna that was still covered in snow and clouds. We headed into Cefalu and I did not know what to expect and here we are a lovely seaside old and modern town under a rocky outcrop. The hotel is across the road from a sandy beach on a very nice and tidy shore front area. We checked in and parked in a secure car park. Went and had lunch, Jenny ordered what she thought were similar to prawn cutlets, she ended up with about a kilogram of prawns ...

      Interesting morning driving through Acireale to find a vet as Tia has a very weepy eye. Firstly the narrow road where Italian drivers do not want to let you through so we got a little stuck and Giles did an amazing manoeuvre and somehow we did not scrape the van. We parked a short way from the vet and I took Tia in and was seen and out within ...

I chose to return to the hotel, it being very warm and humid, and enjoy our deck, the view of Mt Etna and a long cool beer, delivered the same time as the man came to fix the lock on our door, which even the cleaning lady opened with great difficulty...so it wasn't just my ...

      ... for your next visit to the "boot" of Italy.


      The breakfast was great and even featured some fruit along with the usual pastries, yogurt, bread, cheeses and salamis. This morning the bread was hot out of the oven.

Today the coffee ...

      After two days in the Travestere we left Rome. Our taxi arrived in the Piazza at the top of our street due to it being too narrow for a vehicle to come down. Roman traffic was crazy driving to the airport, noone stays in their lane and our cabbie drove hand on the horn and diving recklessly in and out but somehow we arrived at Terminal 3 and bought ourselves some lunch and a calming wine at one of the very classy airport bars. Our Vueling flight was on time ...
