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 ...
... see Mt. Etna towering above us in the cloud and it was a beautiful sight with snow dotting the summit. To get to the actual Etna crater involves a further three and a half hours of travel by chairlift, four wheel drive and hike. Not possible for us! We think our guide said the last eruption was 2001, but don't quote us on that! About two thirds of our way up the trees suddenly disappeared and the landscape was full of lava and ash with ...

Dinner at restaurant recommended by Fabio just down the road called Tishca Toshca with traditional Sicilian food. Fantastic. Meatballs in ...

We hired a car to drive around Sicily (Sicilia to us locals), and the driving can be pretty harrowing at times, with totally unpredictable local drivers, tiny 1 car width roads, and the absence of street ...
Cool wind in piazza for breakfast - tea, corneto, yoghurt and pastries. Left Licata around 10 and headed to Outlet Centre near Enna- about 1 1/2 hrs and 130km. Followed road along coast toward Gella- fabulous scenery over Med- then headed inland on major 2 lane highway- 100kph on road mainly built up on pylons- sometimes 100mtrs high. Good road but crazy overtaking manoeuvres. Outlet mall seemed a carbon copy of those in States in ...
