Travel Blogs from Palermo
The day of travel from Malaga to Palermo was unpleasant at times. First, we had a bit of time finding the airport bus when leaving Malaga. Then, the price of paying little to fly Easy Jet is that one feels persecuted by the luggage limitations. One is only allowed one carry-on. This is absolutely enforced: no umbrella, no purse, no coat, absolutely …
