Ta-da! Back from 8 days on the island of Sicily.

It’s relatively easy to summarise the time – lots of chilling despite 38°C – sometimes more.

What we liked (usually a lot):

  • The people
  • The food
  • The landscape
  • The (nero d’avola) wine – €13-20 in a restaurant…
  • Cefalu
  • Siracusa – actually the ‘island’ of Ortigia – it’s connected by a couple of bridges. My favourite!
  • Our hotel
  • Warm brioche with ice-cream!
  • 2 espressi for €1.80!

What we didn’t like:

  • The litter
  • The litter
  • The litter
  • The litter…

Now back to Beaune – later today a wander in the vines to see how things look – there will be harvesting in 3 weeks!

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?

    Glad you had a restful vacation, but we missed you. The menu looks delicious. Seafood pasta with chilled vino bianco. Reminds me of Inspector Montalbano’s favorite haunt.

      The bottled water was called Montalbano 🙂

    Did you visit the “Don Camillo” restaurant on Ortigia? Amazing cellar, full of Burgundies… And wonderful food too.

      Wish I’d known before Gilberto, so no. But we had fantastic fish and chips – Ortigia-style…
