Heaven? – A Trip to Santorini

Heaven? – A Trip to Santorini

Detroit is a funny place.  It has a terrible reputation for its economic situation.  On top of that it is always at the top of the wrong lists, such as crime and murder rates across America.  Growing up in the Detroit area you turn a blind eye to these problems and enjoy amazing Greek food.  […]

Eat Pizzeria Catania – An Eating Let Down

Eat Pizzeria Catania – An Eating Let Down

I like to keep it pretty positive on Sicily Ciao here, but at the same time I think its important to point out disapointments as well.   We had a group of about 8 of us that were starving after a night at Teatro Massimo Bellini.  Luckily we were still early in “Italian time” for dinner […]

Surfing in Sicily

Surfing in Sicily

Before moving to Sicily we lived in San Diego for 10+ years.  When I moved to San Diego from Michigan I immediately got in the water.  Surfing was my daily obsession after work and whenever I had any free time.  Eventually I learned how to avoid drowning and then moved onto actually surfing and I […]

Mm Restaurant Catania – Freshest Fish in the World

Mm Restaurant Catania – Freshest Fish in the World

Okay maybe Im being a bit dramatic with the whole “Freshest fish in the world”, but it has to be at least in the top percentiles.  Mm has it made because they are literally located right in the square of the fish market in downtown Catania.  They don’t need to worry about fish delivery trucks […]

An Introduction to Tapas in Seville Spain

An Introduction to Tapas in Seville Spain

Growing up I remember my dad having a joke that he was whispering to my grandparents.  He was whispering so that my brothers and I couldn’t hear what the joke was about.  My dad (we call him Pop.. might be a mid western thing ) didn’t realize that I have super hero hearing and heard […]

La Siciliana Restaurant – A Classic in the Catania Area Delivers

La Siciliana Restaurant – A Classic in the Catania Area Delivers

Before we moved to Sicily, (almost 2 years ago now! ) I did what any normal red blooded American does… I bought a guide book.  The guide book was The Rough Guide to Sicily and I have used it countless times for all different types of reasons.  Im a big fan of Rick Steve’s books as […]

Ninnetti Restaurant – A Hidden Gem in the Outskirts of Catania

Ninnetti Restaurant – A Hidden Gem in the Outskirts of Catania

Blogging is tougher than it looks!  Especially for someone that doesn’t know how to read.  Im being dramatic, but I don’t know how to enjoy reading like a typical human being.  I like to listen to music and have a slight addiction to music videos on YouTube.   And my inability to multitask does not allow […]

Lipari Island – A Sicilian Getaway

Lipari Island – A Sicilian Getaway

What do you do when you are on an island for an extended period of time? You go to a smaller nearby island. Sorry for the random thought, but I think its funny how many islands we have been to over the past couple years. We might have an obsession with them or maybe some […]
